WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

DW Frances Elkins Steel Chair

James Andrew and the Elkins steel chair at Pofiles.

The legendary landscape architect Russel Page saw the garden as an extension of the home into the outdoors. Understanding the complex relationship between interior and exterior space is of paramount importance in any successful design, and with this in mind, whether I’m helping a client to decorate and furnish a small terrace or an extensive garden, I treat outside spaces with as much consideration as I do their interior counterparts.

The Elkins steel chair.

This super chic Frances Elkins style steel chair I recently discovered at the Profiles showroom is just the sort of element one might use to create the indoor/outdoor continuity Russel Page espoused. What’s more, you can have the chair finished in any Benjamin Moore color you might fancy to add the most wonderfully whimsical statement to any fine garden sitting or dining area. I myself can’t wait to use these chairs in the decoration of my next “exterior room!”

I’m wearing a red leather biker jacket, floral print western shirt and python belt all by Gucci, jeans by G- Star, brown suede and leather tasseled loafers and sunglasses both by Tom Ford, brown suede and leather satchel by Gucci, and my fragrance is Creed Bois de Cedrat.

    Dear James,

    Wow, you always find the most interesting things ! Funny, I just posted about outdoor fabrics this morning. LOVE these chairs, they are the model you also used in your dining room, only in metal, no ? The Crillon is very grand, enjoy your stay in the most elegant city on earth ! PS, my new clients are restoring a historic David Adler house in Lake Forest ! Small world…

    Frances Elkin. Who could go wrong with perfection. That chair is actually on the outdoor terrace of several old b/w movies… classic. Love that jacket, J.
