CONTRIBUTORS FROM THE EDITOR
Without fail, every spring and summer we receive the most exciting new submissions from some of the greatest design talents in New York, just in time for us to celebrate one of our favorite
design cities and its related fall events. This year was no exception.
Jennifer Post was one designer who brought us exactly what we
needed to open our features, an Upper East Side duplex filled
with desirable art. “Art brings personality,” says Post, who joins us
for our Art in Design panel at What’s New What’s Next at the New
York Design Center, along with Eric Chang, Kevin Kolanowski and
John Pomp, whose work and artistry we greatly admire. “Art is
humanistic; it makes you look at it, it makes you contemplate, it
makes you think. You don’t look at a couch and contemplate.”
Some designers might disagree, and that’s just what we need to
keep the art and design dialogue open. Other New York talents
who brought us their fine work in this issue include Workshop/APD
and Jenny Stone, who combined talents in a project centered
by a spiral stair that harkens back to Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye.
Designer Jessica Gersten brought us an amazing house in Tenafly,
New Jersey, which graces our cover, and Ike Kligerman Barkley
reworked a 1990 house in East Hampton to accommodate the
owners’ collection of blue-chip art.
In the spirit of keeping the friendly East Coast–West Coast
rivalry alive, Los Angeles has brought us some impressive
designs, namely from architect Ray Kappe, who provided two
stellar projects for this issue, both the result of collaboration at
the highest level. Also in this issue, L.A.-based Nick Berman kindly
indulged our form of the Art in Design Proust questionnaire, and
we truly appreciate his insights. We’re thrilled to be gearing up
for an exciting fall season—we’ll also host talks, programs and
fabulous fetes at Fall Preview at the Pacific Design Center, Fall
Market at the Laguna Design Center, D&D Building’s Fall Market,
WestEdge and High Point. See you at the fall events.
