Elle Decor’s Rooms of the Week

We have Elle Decor’s most popular rooms of the week, via ElleDecor.com

The living room of São Paulo–based designer Sig Bergamin’s Manhattan apartment. The ottoman, linen-covered chairs, and velvet armchair, which has a back upholstered in a Braquenié cotton, are by Bergamin. The photograph of Gisele Bündchen is by Michel Comte; the antique bone-inlaid screen was found in India.

In the master bedroom of this Notting Hill home, gold glass cabinets, purchased at the Battersea antiques fair, flank a custom-made bed; the lamps and mirrored screen are 1970s French, the 1950s armchair is Italian, the vanity by Osvaldo Borsani dates from the same era, and the photograph above it is by Derek Henderson.

Mark Zeff designed the master bath’s walls and floors; they are sheathed in travertine, and the shower is tiled with Cipollino tumbled marble. Click here for a full tour of Hilary’s gorgeous Manhattan apartment.

In the compact guest bedroom of the London townhouse she shares with her family, hotelier and designer Kit Kemp used a black-and-white Brunschwig & Fils toile de Jouy for the walls, canopy, pillows, and bedding; the artwork is by Dick Bixby, and the faux-shagreen table is Kemp’s own design.

IAD meets Knoll

As part of their class final project for IAD 250- Design of the Built Environment B, a group of IAD students went on tour of the Knoll Showroom located at 140 New Montgomery street on the 25th floor of the landmark building, built in 1925 and know as the Pac Bell building. Click here to see the amazing redesign of the building.

 The new space that opened just less than a year ago highlights the range of Knoll designs for open plan, private offices and activity spaces. Students got introduced to all the Knoll products that could be applied for their final project, a mixed used commercial space. From textiles and wall coverings, to all the classics like Bertoia, Mies van der Roh, to a collaboration of high end textiles with fashion designers like Rodarte and Proenza Schouler

Thanks to everyone at Knoll for a fun and very informative tour!
