It’s no secret that I’m a bit of an Anglophile – and I think it often comes through in the interiors I create.

Claremont is a historic London based textile firm that has been in operation for almost eighty years. Several years ago, while I was still working with Parish Hadley, Claremont’s New York outpost introduced me to their most exquisite line of old school loom textiles and I have been smitten ever since.

I now use their distinctive fabrics for almost everything I design; from my trademark high style traditional commissions to my lux modern creations and everything between – from a contemporary ski house in Vail, to within my own home!

You’ll not only find a remarkable assortment of textiles at the ultra chic Claremont showroom, but fabulous trims, wallpapers and mid-century furniture as well, and if you need help with all of this, then there is a super attentive and capable hands-on staff there to explore solutions with you – and in the rare chance that you are not finding the exact color, say to match your favorite pet Bengal’s eyes, well then Claremont will custom color most of their fabrics and trimmings per request!

Getting inspired at Claremont’s New York showroom (top), I’m wearing a cognac/cashmere corduroy suit, tweed checked coat, and python belt with silver double horse head buckle all by Gucci, white and green striped cotton shirt with French cuffs by Turnbull and Asser, silver pangolin cuff links by Patrick Mavros. white and green silk retro print pocket square by Charvet, oranage suede tasseled loafers by Etro, loden wool window pane plaid tie by Ralph Lauren.
