Bilhuber & Associates, Inc
Jeffrey Bilhuber has a uniquely American perspective that breathes new life into tradition with a confirmed understanding of modern sensibilities. He mixes periods and design ideas with a confidence and instinctive style whose rules are self-evident: practicality and sheer beauty.
He is the author of four highly acclaimed books published by Rizzoli. His first book, Jeffrey Bilhuber’s Design Basics, with a Foreword by Anna Wintour, Rizzoli 2003, is now in its sixth printing. Its follow-up, Defining Luxury: The Qualities of Life at Home, continues a tradition of reaching his broad and diverse market, articulating the mood of a nation, and forecasting the essential goals of the many or few. In this third book, The Way Home: Reflections of American Beauty, Bilhuber shares his reflections of personal histories and family life, not grand gestures of presentation. In other words, decorating with soul. His latest title, American Master: Notes on Style and Substance with a Foreword written by Bilhuber’s client Mariska Hargitay, represents his curated point of view on design.
Vicente Wolf Associates
For the past three decades Vicente Wolf has fostered the global development of his brand through a simplicity-driven principle that infuses his many creative endeavours: interior design, photography, art collection and global travel. From the spacious light-filled loft in New York City where his company is headquartered, Wolf and his team at Vicente Wolf Associates build on his passion for design, maintaining an impressive portfolio that spans multinational conglomerates and private homes to hotels and restaurants across the globe.
Always on the lookout for new ways in which to inspire the world of design, Wolf’s eye for detail has created a reputation for quality appreciated by his discerning client list, the creative industry as a whole, and his international partnerships with some of the world’s top luxury brands. Award winning designer, international speaker, book publisher, lauded retailer and celebrated business partner, the designer now heads up two companies: VW Home by Vicente Wolf and Vicente Wolf Associates.
Tony Chi distinguishes himself from other designers because of his temperament. He is a perfectionist; meticulous, unwavering and possessing an intensity that provokes emotion, never allowing indifference. His design transcends ephemeral curiosity entertained by the surface of things. He understands that design without functionality is hollow and functionality without people who care to utilize it defeats the purpose. In his own words, “any designer can create a dazzling body but I want to create spaces that have a chance at building a soul.” He doesn’t merely deliver aesthetics, he delivers an experience.
Tony Chi and Associates is indeed known for attention to detail, for orchestrating rich compositions of shagreen and lacquer, aqueous glass mosaics and textured wood veneer, supergraphic-laminated glass and prismatic mirror. Yet to focus solely on such things would be missing the point. For Chi believes in what he calls “invisible design,” the notion that, much like good service, a hospitality space should elicit a positive response without necessarily making you aware of why.
Shawn Henderson Interior Design
The creative process of Shawn Henderson begins by listening to his clients then contemplating how design can make their lives more beautiful. The beauty is in the details: lightness, flexibility and cleanliness. He sees newfound beauty in old materials and furnishings, and often reclaims them in fresh new ways. The furniture that he design reflects familiar forms, but the lines are pared down and more pure. Often he is drawn to serene palettes punctuated with rich splashes of color. No one element stands out – the layers and unexpected mix achieves a harmonious balance.
Building from these principles, putting a home together is a joy, one that has resonated with his clients and the design world. Henderson’s Designs have been published in Architectural Digest, Veranda, Elle Decor, Luxe, House Beautiful, The New York Times and NY Spaces.
