January 29, 2018

A roundup of our under-the-radar discoveries from 2017 (and a couple from 2016): Here are 13 architects and designers we’ve got our eye on, in no particular order.

Above: We first became aware of the quirky, distinctively French modernist vibe of designer C. S. Valentin when we posted on Hotel Esencia: Secluded Splendor on the Maya Riviera last year. We followed up with a visit to A Colonial House in Bellport with Uncommon Style and a Steal This Look: An Idiosyncratic French Bedroom on Long Island post. And earlier today we featured his own apartment, At Home with C. S. Valentin: French Eclecticism in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Check out his line of furniture and home goods at Bogus Studio.

Also check out his shop: Counter-Space: Furniture and Homewares for Mindful Living, California-Style.

Above: We’re fans of the relaxed, organic modern style of Carissa Duncan of design studio Salt & Bones in Carmel, California; we especially like her work at Esalen; see A Storied Retreat in Big Sur Gets an Update (for the First Time in 50 Years).

Chan & Eayres in London

Above: London design partners Chan & Eayrs aim to create “homes with soul,” as they say. “The idea of home is a primal and a personal construct.” Shown above, the kitchen in the Weaver’s House, their most recent project, a remodel of a Spitalfields Huguenot townhouse.
