"Antiques in a Modern Home . . . "


Greetings,

A big thank you goes out to California Homes Magazine for including me in their recent editorial surrounding the topic of using antiques in a modern home.  Using a collection of local interior designers - our task was to create a space merging modern design with antiques - I also decided to play around with mixing 'hi' and 'low' merchandise . . .

I imaged a space - maybe on the far wall of an industrial loft . . . concrete floors . . . concrete walls . . . but, the need for a proper desk . . . and a quiet place to gather one's thoughts . . .

"Mixing trade with retail, Scot Meacham Wood paired a wool ikat rug supplied by Stark Carpet with curated objects from Anthem of San Francisco.  He positioned a haunting oil portrait of a gentleman from Antique and Art Exchange with a colorful landscape from Z Gallerie.  An eight-panel folding Coromandel Screen alludes to distant lands while Wood added a touch of his signature tartan with Lee Jofa's "Cecil Plaid" on a red Chippendale style armchair."

Thanks to Stark Carpet, Antique and Art ExchangeLee Jofa, and Anthem.

Cheers,
Scot

Beautiful setting, Scot.
So glad you enlarged the caption for us. I would have missed your signature plaid on the chair seat!

Congrats on the publicity.
