I was reading about JF Chen, the wildly successful antiques dealer from Los Angeles. He is considered an expert of old- world décor, 20th century modernism, contemporary furniture as well as other sought after rarities. He said in the article; Decorating is all about the juxtaposition of opposites-mixing antiques with vintage and contemporary items. “Matching” no longer exists. A bedroom with matching dressers or a coordinating dining room is, thank goodness, over.
This statement is the very foundation for the595project and it is why I love what I do. To be able to bring the mix to those who have a passion for design is my mission. After seeing a photo shoot for New York Magazine I thought the very same point is in today’s fashion. This collection of photographs was titled “The Clash”. It is very cool and I can’t wait to try my own version as fall sets in! It’s really all about good design whether it’s for the home or what you wear. Enjoy the photos!
