WOWpaper + fabric: Sapience Chair re-do

WOWpaper + fabric: Sapience Chair re-do

I’m a big believer in using my WOWpapers on furniture. The Sapience Chair from Sentient Furniture here in Brooklyn gave me a great starting point to work with. I applied my pattern to the back of the chair with a paper. I didn’t use the peel-and-stick finish here as I…
Summer (of Love) Social

Summer (of Love) Social

I designed 10 custom wall papers for a group of interior designers for a big party. Every year five interior design professional organizations in NYC host the fabulous Summer Social for their members. I didn’t yet have the WOWpapers website, was not yet in business to sell papers, didn’t have…
Echelon Chandelier for MODULIGHTOR

Echelon Chandelier for MODULIGHTOR

The Echelon Chandelier that I designed for MODULIGHTOR was used in the Hampton Designer Showhouse. There was what’s now called a Single Layer Trellis fixture in the MODULIGHTOR showroom when I arrived there. It was a showroom model that couldn’t be installed in the real world the way displayed. The…
CE Week installation at Javits

CE Week installation at Javits

My first WOWpapers installation in the Javits Center was for the Consumer Electronics Week expo, CE Week. They built a mock-up of a house with ‘rooms’ created for the display of various manufacturers’ new products. The WOWpapers were selected for three of the rooms which gave me the perfect opportunity…
Brooklyn Vibe light fixtures

Brooklyn Vibe light fixtures

After a decade of creating very sleek, modernist light fixture designs in metal at MODULIGHTOR I moved to Brooklyn and started a different vibe. I’ve explored more organic, less regular fixtures. Still component-based and geometric, of course. These LED wine rack fixtures were inspired by my father when he asked…
My first WOWfabric suit.

My first WOWfabric suit.

When I got my first WOWpaper installed I said, “That should be a suit!” I hadn’t imagined myself to be a custom suit designer, though I had designed a few garments before. With the pattern being so bold it could easily have looked clownish so I went to a real…
Kitchen cabinet ‘resurfacing’

Kitchen cabinet ‘resurfacing’

My peel-and-stick option for a WOWpapers print created a really incredible kitchen cabinet ‘resurfacting.’ A quick and easy way to create a whole new look. Cut to size for each cabinet door or drawer. Because the cabinet doors are spaced irregularly and don’t line up vertically between upper and lower…
Gaetano Sciolari

Gaetano Sciolari

As much as I love LIGHT I’m not a fan of about 98% of the light fixtures out in the world. Hence why so much of my career has been designing them. When I do find something – it’s LOVE, as it is for the work of Gaetano Sciolari. An…
The ‘Fabulous Gene’

The ‘Fabulous Gene’

Due to a photo of me my mother told me that I’d inherited my fabulousness. I have this strange talent for being able to recognize hot spots for quick portraiture as I walk down the street. My friends must love it when I dictate but considering what great photos result…
