GoreDean With and To The Trade

We were so excited to get the photos last week of the  beautiful new St Regis Hotel in Mexico City where Yabu Pushelberg used our line of original furniture for the lobby.  Cesar Pelli designed the building and Yabu Pushelberg did the interiors. It is a fabulous hotel and we must all run down there immediately…and sit in the lobby.

It reminded of the day that the ultra decadent and chic chairs arrived that we did for Clyde’s Chinatown in alligators, crocodile, ostrich, python- you name it. They just arrived in time for the opening and RUSH…RUSH  off they sped to the restaurant.  It was too late when I realized that the goredean labels were not attached to the chairs. After all….. So off Spider and I went to the big party.  We had to make our way to every chair… find a way to sit in it and surreptitiously place a tag in the center under the seat.  It took hours and we must have looked very strange- feeling our way around the bottom of chairs…

It made  me think of some other adventures..still saved on the hard drive….

In this month’s issue, Elle decor chose my own DC to profile for the design ‘insider’. Well I thought I’d add my 2 cents. While their choices are all fine and dandy, there were only a few that I totally agree with, such as Gore Dean. – Architect Design

CAMILLE SAUM

Dining Room by Camille Saum

 

Camille Saum From Floor to Ceiling,

Forget the cliched glossy red Georgetown dining room. Camille Saum’s radiant space (walls painted in Farrow & Ball’s Orangery) could start a run on tangerine-, pumpkin- and apricot-painted dining rooms. To set off the orange walls, the Bethesda designer commissioned a stenciled ceiling and a bold checkerboard-painted wood floor. The cove of the wide crown molding was painted aubergine (Farrow & Ball’s Cinder Rose). A master of color, Saum picked up the purple in the crystals of the antique Swedish chandelier, and the copper and lavender in the Missoni dinner plates, both from Gore Dean’s Baltimore shop. photo: Gordon Beall

Who knew a home store in an old industrial mill would work? The owner of Gore Dean did. With just the right mix of styles and eras, Gore Dean is one of our favorite stores in Baltimore.
