A Well-Designed Base

“The Bonn sofa sectional from Nathan Anthony Furniture is uniquely chic and masculine, built for comfort with deep seating and detailed in rich wood and metal. The style lends itself to a room full of the latest technologies.”

Subtly Multifunctional

“The Perfect Proportions cabinet from Caracole is the essence of smart furniture. Its proportions are lean and tall, and hidden under the top is a cache of plugs, ports and storage for the modern home. Charge and store all of your portable gadgets and still keep the space clean and tidy.”

More Than Meets the Eye

“The Mellow multimedia side table from Creatio Design is a Mid-Century-inspired design jewel that has speakers built in to propel premium audio in every direction. It also has USB ports for charging your smartphone. When fully charged, the table delivers both sound and charging capabilities for up to seven straight hours.”

3D Wall Decor

“The Feather wall sculpture is my own design for Phillips Collection. It creates a 3D element to add to the Paradiso wallpaper from Nina Campbell. The scale of both the paper and the feathers is perfect, and the two personalize the installation into a unique wall treatment that is pure art.”

Will That Be All, Sir?

“Think of the Google Home in Copper as a modern-day butler. He will answer questions, play music, and turn the lights on and off or dim them. He can also adjust the temperature, turn the ceiling fan on and off and even stream and control your TV. He is the personal servant for the smart home.”
