The Plentitude

1c8b039ca94284e74bfb0de7d2060ce8

Design looms large — this week in Milan and in our world in general — she no longer takes a back seat, as her value is becoming known to those who should know it. She inches towards the front of the room, and as she approaches, she stands ever taller.

A building made entirely of stairs to be climbed for a fee. Awards that are purchased, not won. Empty rooms transformed into living commercials that jump off the screen and page, and then – ironically – back onto them. In our age of hyper-commerce and of hyper-communication, Design looms larger still.

And as her cheerleader, I dare not object.

But in the cacophony of her growth, she has kept a space for us. We, who exist in the intersection between the plentitude and the passion. Here, we find quiet.

We find a woodworker with his slab of oak. We find a chair with a mother rocking her child to sleep. We find an architect at her desk, with a pencil and paper. Gone are the crowds — and in their place, are one-on-one interactions, personal discoveries and group collaborations. And here, in our corner of design, leading up to New York’s design week, we at Colony celebrate these duets of intimacy.

FULL SPECTRUM

Finding Balance

assemblage

Before we embark on another busy spring season of launches and May exhibits, a look back at pieces from last year’s NYCxDESIGN show Balance/Unbalanced gives us a moment of reflection on the lasting impact of great design and our ongoing pursuit of balance.

FAVORITES | SPRING FLORALS

First and foremost, let’s address the shivering elephant in the room; it’s not spring. And if you, like me, were feeling hopeful for green-tipped crocuses and the sound of songbirds, then I implore you not to take the city’s cruel and snowy reminder of a lingering winter too personally. Instead of focusing on still-frozen precipitation, I’m looking forward to the upcoming bouquet making event with Flat Vernacular in celebration of their newly launched floral collection, Wilds.

 

I plan to center my bouquet on the kitchen table in an act of defiance against temperatures in the teens. As Wilds was inspired by resilient flower species, it feels fitting that I’m turning to these blossoms for a cheerful reminder that warmer sunshine is just around the corner.

 

RSVP here to make flower bouquets, drink cocktails and shop the collection, custom prints and the 3-2-4 Candle!
