Refined Luxury with Cuff Studio

It always feels like a beautiful alignment when we come across brands that share our intent as well as our esthetic. To celebrate the launch of Meadow, Cuff Studio recently curated an effortlessly stylish vignette at our San Francisco showroom featuring pieces from their new line of covetable furniture and furnishings. Below we speak to Wendy Schwartz who, alongside co-founder Kristi Bender, has championed female-led business, sustainable design and quality craftsmanship.

An Evening on the Future of Design

In celebration of B Corp Month and the theme “This Way Forward”, we hosted a panel discussion at our Sydney showroom on the future of sustainability in design.   Facilitated by Tim Ross, the wide-ranging conversation included Jeremy Bull of Alexander &CO., Eva-Marie Prineas of Studio Prineas, and author and journalist Karen McCartney.   Below, the speakers share their insights on the benefits of becoming certified as a B Corp, how sustainability informs their approach to design and the growing consumer appetite for values-led brands.


Plateau Project with Georges Antoni and Phoebe Ghorayeb

Home to fashion photographer Georges Antoni, model and presenter Phoebe Ghorayeb and their three young children, this 60-year-old Sydney bungalow is at its core a love letter to family. In giving the residence new life, the couple honored the post-modernist heritage while infusing it with modern warmth. Understated in palette and lively in texture, everything feels intentional and inviting – the perfect backdrop to rest, play and gather.

For Art's Sake

Last month marked the tenth edition of the FOG Design+Art Fair in San Francisco. To celebrate the acclaimed event, stylist RosySF transformed our showroom in Presidio Heights into a gallery showcasing the imaginative works of eight emerging artists from diverse backgrounds. Following the idea of a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’, where different art forms are presented together as a collective whole, plinths were adorned with a careful arrangement of sculptures and objets d’art and placed atop our sumptuous Eden rug. With its velvety allure, the handcrafted rug acted as a beautiful canvas and the central harmonizing force for the interplay of artistic brilliance. Styling and photography by RosySF
