James Huniford At Home

About the Item

An in-depth look at the design process of James Huniford, who is renowned for his skill in juxtaposing opposites-contemporary with traditional, rustic with refined-to create a timeless whole. James Huniford, known to all as Ford, creates elegant rooms, comfortable reflections of their owners’ personalities and lifestyles, in a way that is both empathetic and intuitive. He blends old and new, high and low, formal and casual, with a skill that makes these contrasts look utterly effortless. Each of his projects is different, and each is an authentic response to its place and its occupants. In James Huniford: At Home, Huniford explores his design process thematically, with chapters on approaching a room, considering scale and proportion, selecting materials and art, using color effectively, and marrying form and function. His goal is to create “a modern sensibility of calm.” Of special interest is his ability to create artworks out of objects he finds, compositions of tools, baskets, or metalwork that become compelling wall sculptures or freestanding pieces. Examples are drawn from a wide variety of projects-elegant Upper East Side apartments to raw lofts on the Lower East Side to contemporary condominiums in new “supertall” towers in Manhattan, country houses in Connecticut, upstate New York, and Martha’s Vineyard, and across the country in Nashville and Marin County, California. Special insight into his process can be gleaned from his own homes, a loft in Tribeca, and a historic house in Bridgehampton that he readily admits are laboratories for his ideas.

  • John Richardson at Home
    By John Richardson, Rizzoli International Publications
    Located in New York, NY
    Famed Picasso biographer and art historian Sir John Richardson opens the doors of residences from his life, revealing an autobiographical sketch through handsomely decorated rooms filled with art, antiques, and intriguing mementoes, each with a special story. John Richardson's Bohemian Aristocrat interiors are, and have been throughout his life, filled with fine English and American antiques; interesting textiles; works of art by friends, legendary artists Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Lucian Freud, Andy Warhol, and Robert Mapplethorpe; vivid color combinations; and objects that prompt stories from a well-lived life. From London and the stately buildings of Stowe School, in the idyllic Buckinghamshire countryside, to the south of France, New York City, and the Connecticut countryside, Richardson shares the story of his life through places, objects, and people, a form of autobiography, gloriously illustrated, entertainingly told. In stories about his residences in the south of France (at the Château de Castille with celebrated art historian and collector Douglas Cooper), London (a set of rooms at the famed Albany apartment house), and the United States (glamorous New York City apartments and a country retreat in Connecticut), Richardson reveals his life through a mélange of interesting places, mementoes, works of art, furnishings that prompt stories, and an endlessly fascinating assortment of friends and acquaintances--Fernand Léger, Lady Diana Cooper, Fran Lebowitz...
