In Her Debut Collection, Sarah Ellison Channels the ’70s Through a Distinctly Australian Lens

Armed with years of research, Australian stylist and designer Sarah Ellison debuted her first collection of furniture late last year, inspired by the playful proportions of '70s. In her pieces, these references are reinterpreted through a distinctly Australian lens, with colors and textures from the coastline captured through material choices such as travertine, mirrored glass, ceramic, and linen.

One of the Art World’s Biggest Rising Stars is Inspired by Design

Less than a month after we spotted a stunning unknown painting on the walls of Kai Avent-deLeon's Brooklyn brownstone in 2015, we popped into L.A.'s MAMA gallery for a random visit and instantly recognized that we were surrounded by the work of the very same artist, Mattea Perrotta.

Two Furniture Collections That Prove the Mexican Design Scene Is on the Rise

By now you've all heard some variation on the rumor that Mexico City is the new Berlin; maybe you've even had an artist friend make good on their threats to move down there. Certainly it's a city that everyone suddenly has big plans to visit, and for good reason — the Mexican art and design scenes are increasingly (for lack of a better word) hot right now, and if our report last year from design week didn't convince you of the latter, these projects by PLDO and Savvy Studio just might.
