Ever wonder what designers use in their own homes or just can not list without? Well, in our Interview Mondays (which are posted every Monday at 11am PST), we have been gaining more insight into the personal world behind those designer front doors.
What you didn't know until now is that we can't fit all their great answers into one interview post. So, we have assembled some of our outtakes to create The Designer Must List. The list where the designer tell us what they love and must have. Enjoy!
1. “I love to use chandeliers. They are dramatic, romantic and totally underused.” - Emily Henderson (shown: White Cypress Pendant Light)
2. “Right now, I am obsessed with Kerry Joyce’s new textiles - the textures are amazing and the simplicity of his patterns are a perfect blend of modern and traditional. Right up my alley." - Kenneth Brown
3. "People underestimate how important and versatile a demilune (half-round) table can be, especially in smaller spaces. Look for one with a drawer and a lower shelf. That will give you extra storage and a great display opportunity.” - Christopher Lowell
4. "I love old carnival pieces. "- Mark Culter
What do you think? Did you know that Emily loved chandeliers or Mark carnival pieces? Me neither. But I do now. Look for more of The Designer Must List in future weeks.
