Each year, LCDQ invites designers from around the country to create vignettes in the 50 windows of the member shops, showrooms, and galleries. This window display for Woven is our take on the theme: “TODAY’S VISION, TOMORROW’S HOME.” Using walls inspired by Victorian, Art Deco, and Mid Century modern decor our goal was to convey how meaningful architecture and interior design have transitioned over time, and into the future.
An island inspired luxury compound reveals its South Pacific, Caribbean, and Asian influences through both the exterior and interior design choices. The 37-acre project, a ground-up new build, includes not only 40,000 sq. ft. of living space, but a tennis pavilion, two outdoor bars, a petting zoo, a 12’ deep lake with canals, 1,100 producing date palms, and a 4-hole golf course.
Situated around the lake so that each room has a full view of the water, the intersection between the interiors and the exterior becomes blurred. In order to not compete with the views a subtle color palette with choice accents of red prevail throughout the home. The proportions of the furniture pieces were carefully designed so as to not disappear into the expansive rooms. Found objects, such as corn mill grinders, Chinese floats, Kuba clothes, and ceramic urns were repurposed and reimagined as art. And any custom artwork, like the 21’ long carved wood panel was designed by us specifically for the project.
A front courtyard, defined by elements of fire and water, welcomes you to this extensive remodel in The Vintage Club. Comfort and elegance create an inviting retreat for the parttime residents. Every room, including the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and bath, has been reimagined throughout these transitional interiors. A custom wine room, theatre and piano room were created while an outdoor spa and relaxing seating area adjacent to the master suite were redone. Featured architectural elements employ organic shapes and reflective surfaces. Ceilings and soffits in custom-painted silver, gold and champagne tones add luminous shine, complemented by the the large-scale Cambria floor tiles, all of which work together to reflect the beautiful desert light. We had the multicolored custom area rug of silk and wool made to anchor the sofas and chairs by A. Rudin, and our firm designed the walnut coffee table specifically for the space. A home away from home.
