Above, Kelly Wearstler's vintage painting hanging in the KWID bungalow, photographed by John Coolidge for House Beautiful, June 2001. Below, the painting reappears in the designer's son's room, as seen in Domicilium Decoratus, published by Harper Collins, 2006. (Similar leather Moroccan poufs are available through John Derian.)
I'm a little obsessed with forever pieces -- great art or furniture that can stay with you for a lifetime, through numerous moves or changes in circumstances. It's especially fun to see how top designers re-use their own finds.
While I'm on that 2001 KWID bungalow spread in House Beautiful, below are two more rooms from the feature that still look so fresh.
As you probably know, both of these interiors are also featured in Modern Glamour: The Art of Unexpected Style; multiple views of the dining/conference room are included.
Currently, this lacquered 1940s Paul Frankl cocktail table, similar to the one in the KWID bungalow lounge above, is available through Downtown.
