Design*Sponge Interview

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge.  We talked about set decoration, interior design , and of course, wallpaper!

The radio station, Heritage Radio, where we did the interview was really great – in the back of the super popular Brooklyn restaurant Roberta’s Pizza.  Check out Heritage Radio’s great programming here.   I hope you enjoy the interview!!

Cinema Style

Cinema Style (a blog that I love) had a great post yesterday:  When Worlds Collide: Fashion and Film.   The post discusses how the influence of celebrity can affect our purchasing choices.  Specifically, moving beyond celebrity endorsements, how celebrity partnerships and inspirations actually may guide this market. Check out the article and while you are there  take the time to look around.  There are a lot of excellent posts to read if you are interested in film design.

At Marks & Frantz we are always interested in these intersecting worlds and try to foster these collaborations in our own work as much as possible.  Our redesign of the Top of the Strand, the rooftop bar at the Strand Hotel in New York City, was a creative partnership with Trina Turk for Schumacher and the set decoration for the films Sex and the City and Devil Wears Prada were chock full of fashion/design/furniture crossovers.





Trina Turk’s Schumacher Photo Shoot

We have a surprise collaboration coming up in the next few weeks with fashion designer Trina Turk. Here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come! tumblr_ljs1zsBE121qbk7odo2_9999
Check out Trina’s new collection of outdoor fabrics for Schumacher and a snap from her latest photo shoot for this collection. We are so excited about this collaboration and we are once again “flirting with fashion!” Even the pattern names evoke her eponymous Palm Springs style….soleil LA, loop de loop and coastline. Stay tuned for more details!
