April + May 2016

This issue, we celebrate California design, with a visit to The RealReal founder Julie Wainwright’s light-filled island retreat near San Francisco, reworked by designer Martin Kobus; one of midcentury architect William Pereira’s few private residences, the Firestone estate near Palm Springs, lovingly restored by designer Sam Cardella; and a modern, indoor-outdoor house in the Hollywood Hills by the late architect Steven Shortridge and his associate Andrew Benson. We are treated to a rare glimpse inside the studio of designer Mark Boone, who, as the head of Mimi London, Inc., helped create the modern California look. We travel to an extraordinary house in Rome by the firm Sifola Sposato, and our special Italian Style section focuses on dispatches from design houses with lasting legacies. Plus, a profile on the legendary American furniture brand Baker, our picks from the European fairs and much more!
