It’s no secret that many find Holiday House to be a source of divine design inspiration. Founded by Iris Dankner in 2008, Holiday House combines Iris’s love of design and her desire to help women in need. Each year, Holiday House supports The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We’re thrilled to announce that several items from Holiday House 2014 will be sold at Viyet to benefit this worthy cause, including items from Rachel Laxer‘s room.
Rachel’s inspiration for the room began with a blue satin Lanvin sheath, accompanied by a drip dyed fur stole and jewelry to match. The moment she spotted the dress in their St. Honore atelier, she knew she wated to create a room for the woman who would wear that dress. “… inspired by the 70’s style of Halston, Warhol and Studio 54, I’ve created a seductive women’s study, with a midsummer’s holiday twist: the perfect, peaceful place for a glamour girl to catch up on work or chill out in the evening – a perfect refuge.”
“One of the lucky finds is a Milo Baughman tub chair, covered in a blue Pierre Frey velvet. The contemporary lighting, by Brooklyn designer Stephen Antonson, features white, hand-painted plasterwork, which was very popular in the 1920’s and 30’s. The black and white paintings flanking the doorway are by Kerri Rosenthal, a Connecticut artist inspired by de Koonig and Pollack.”
