    luxe, and maintaining its quality and status. In this episode, the partners discuss how they
    work together, why their strengths are compatible, what they see ahead, and how

    Updating Tradition the British Way

    Updating Tradition the British Way

    Americans have long looked to British homes for inspiration. But for a young British designer, can the weight of history sometimes seem too much? How do you update tradition so that it remains relevant and works for realms far beyond the grand country house? The principals of two rising British design firms—Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock of Turner Pocock and Mary Graham and Nicole Salvesen of Salvesen Graham—reveal how their backgrounds shaped their sense of design, why color, pattern, and handcrafted details are crucial to their visions, how they sometimes find inspiration in the work of American designers, and why quality and comfort remain the hallmarks of British design, no matter what the century.

    In With The Old: Why Vintage Furniture is The New New

    In With The Old: Why Vintage Furniture is The New New

    As with so much else, the pandemic had a huge impact on the vintage market and changed
    what and how people purchased items for their homes. As any stigma about buying used
    furnishings diminished, and as awareness of the importance of sustainability increased,
    vintage items became more sought after than ever. With Chairish about to issue its second
    status report on the state of the resale market, three experts—interior designer Laura
    Hodges, vintage dealer Stephanie Schofield, and Anna Brockway, co-founder and president of
    Chairish—size up the vintage market today, report on changed attitudes, discuss the
    shortage of artisans and craftsmen that limits the viability of many vintage pieces, and
    reveal what they feel is most likely to be sought after in the months ahead—everything
    from games table to wicker and bamboo to all things blue.

    Thomas O’Brien on Transforming a Personal Vision into a National Brand

    Thomas O’Brien on Transforming a Personal Vision into a National Brand

    Thomas O’Brien is not only a hugely influential interior designer, but since the founding of his firm, Aero Studios, in 1992, he has been a merchant and shopkeeper, and has designed numerous successful lines of furnishings for a range of companies. From faucets to furniture, towels to tableware, he seems to have designed it all. Here, he tells of his early years in New York working for Mario Buatta and Ralph Lauren; how his passion for design history, his love of New York City, and his skill at shopping have all equally shaped his vision; why movies of the 1930s and ‘40s still inspire him; and why he feels that, even as design trends come and go, vintage will always have value.
