Gift Guide 2014: Limited-Edition Decor Items
24/11/2014
For the design and home decor nut, there’s nothing quite like scoring an ultra-rare or limited-edition piece of furniture or objet d’art to spice up their humble abodes with. BLOUIN Lifestyle picks a range of display items that will please any discerning collector. Starting with a chance to own a unique piece of nature is a small slab of petrified wood, by Andrianna Shamaris, that is the perfect mix of a highly polished interior surface with a raw edge. Stand it on its own, or use it as a coaster, trivet, or platform for small objects ($236, The Line.com). If Asprey’s one-of-a-kind Rocking Elephant (pictured above, left) doesn’t start a conversation at a party, we don’t know what will. The children's fantasy animal rocker is designed by Donald Chaffin, the well-known English illustrator of “Fantastic Mr Fox”, required five months to carve from supple American white oak, and gilded with individual leaves of 24K gold ($100,000, www.modaoperandi.com). Another eye-popping piece is Takashi Murakami's Flowerball plush, which comes in various sizes, but the 60cm version certainly doubles up as a luxurious bum seat — we dare this not to immediately banish any seasonal mood disorders. ($5,000, Gagosian Gallery Store). On the other end of the subtlety spectrum, on the other hand (ahem), is Maurizio Cattelan's L.O.V.E. Snow Globe (pictured above, right) — enshrining one of Cattelan's most controversial public works, popularly known as "The Middle Finger", in a protective bubble ($46, exclusive to the Museum of Modern Art store). What holds your valuables and acts as a decorative object in the living room at the same time? An Asprey vault, made entirely of sterling silver, that's what ($22,800, www.modaoperandi.com). This fantastically large trunk features a seat, writing ledge, drawers, and compartments. Made by Hangar Design Group for Bertoni, jet set in style with it, or display it in any room. The exterior is crafted with parchment leather with black alligator studded trim, while the interior is finished with polished oak and black alligator detailing ($62,560, www.modaoperandi.com). For a warm cheer at home, go for a set of three mini glass candles, depicting a golden silhouette of Paris, by French luxury perfumier Maison Francis Kurkdjian. The scents come in a warm blend of iris, gingerbread and cedar wood, and burn for 20 hours each ($95, www.neimanmarcus.com and Bergdorf Goodman). And doubling up as a tree ornament is macaron-maker Ladurée’s “Les Boules Parfumées Ladurée” — deeply fragranced ornaments that release an intense but delightfully delicate perfumed scent. This one, Arabian Nights, evokes the warm breath of wood from the Far East ($72 each, available in the patissier’s SoHo, Madison Avenue, and Miami stores).

Highlights From the Pratt Institute Legends Gala
21/11/2014
It’s been an undoubtedly good year for the Pratt Institute, a fact that shone on the satisfied faces of honorees, the school’s trustees, and other attendees at last night’s Pratt Legends Gala at the Mandarin Oriental. The Brooklyn-based art, architecture, and design school’s achievements in 2014 are substantial: it opened a new design and fashion incubator in early November in South Williamsburg, a group of it’s students recently presented their work at the White House to Michelle Obama, and the school continues to rank among the country’s top programs in the creative disciplines it teaches. Yesterday, as in previous years, the annual scholarship benefit pursued its fundraising ends by honoring three leading practitioners in the fields of art and design. This year’s luminaries are interior and furniture designer Iris Apfel, the reigning queen of senior citizen dressing, whose unmistakable predilection for giant round glasses, bright furs, and sparkling accessories has accorded her influence across generations; Kim Hastreiter, the founder and editor-in-chief of Paper Magazine, who “broke the Internet” by putting another, rather more salacious Kim on her magazine’s latest cover; and David and Sybil Yurman, the husband-and-wife duo behind the high-end jewelry line named after the former. Though none of this year’s honorees are alumni, the explanation goes that their varied achievements have invariably shaped the education and careers of the institute’s former, current, and future students. Even before each honoree accepted a statuette designed by current Pratt junior Chengtao Yi, it was clear that all of them wield influence that extends far beyond the school’s Clinton Hill and Manhattan campuses. Undeniable success of the sort lauded at the Legends Gala always comes at a price, typically years of hard, often unrecognized work. For everyone else taking in views from the 36th-floor venue last night, that sum was “whatever you can give,” a refrain heard constantly from Pratt professor and gala emcee Bill Hilson. Here, the school’s fundraisers should be lauded for their creativity — guests were encouraged to text a pre-arranged phone number with financial pledges, and each text was displayed on a screen that fueled competition among audience members. For reference, that’s (646) 427-8000, should anyone feel inspired to supplement the $60,000 figure that the experimental tactic raised for scholarships last night. (In total, the evening racked up $760,000 for scholarships.) Not only did guests provide financial support to Pratt students, honorees also offered advice to the assembled crowd and the larger student community. Hastreiter spoke about focusing on the present moment, while David Yurman jokingly recommended “a lot of psychiatry.” Apfel admitted that she checked the dictionary for “legend” definitions, and after pondering whether she was “gloriously notorious” or “a myth,” moved on to the “eternal question: what the devil do I wear?” (Vintage black Alberta Feretti, a fur collar, and plenty of rhinestones, for the record.) When Bruce Gitlin, Chair of Pratt's Board of Trustees, took the podium, he had some more subtle advice for the audience: “New buildings support naming opportunities for all of you.”   Highlights From the Pratt Institute Legends GalaSelect Photo Gallery: Pratt Institute Legends GalaPublished: November 21, 2014 Read full article here
