High on the couple’s agenda: replacing the futon with a sofa. But for now, there it sits, below a painting they got from Boatright’s grandmother. The halo lamp on the left is from a collaboration Mead did with the young Berlin firm 45 Kilo. “With my early furniture you could tell that I was very schooled, very taught,” he says. “But then when you start to get into things like this, or Sebastian’s Stake, it goes more hand in hand with my jewelry in that you don’t really buy it because it works, you buy it because it’s a statement piece. Every time I make something now it comes from that same idea.”
