On a recent trip to NYC I got a big dose of inspiration checking out street art through out the neighborhoods of lower Manhattan (the Bowery, SoHo, NoLita) with Ginna of 27 Ground, also the Creative Director for Marc Phillips Rugs. Ginna has been collaborating with artists to create unique, one of a kind area rugs for Marc Phillips to be auctioned off for charity in conjunction with PS Arts. Ginna and I spent an afternoon wandering the streets of NYC in search of street art followed by a visit to the Marc Phillips Rugs showroom at the D & D Building to check out an exclusive preview of the latest artists designed rug collection.

As part of an homage to PS Arts, a child’s artwork was chosen to be turned into one of the area rug designs for the collection.

Currently on display at the Century City shopping center (an outdoor shopping mall here in LA) is The Reindeer Project: a curated selection of twelve local artists who have transformed a blank reindeer statue into a unique piece of art. The reindeer displays are showcased thorough out the shopping center and being auctioned to benefit Inner-City Arts, a non-profit devoted to bringing arts education back to students in the public school system.

Happy to announce a new Marc Phillips Decorative Rugs showroom is coming to Los Angeles! This past week I attended an event for the breaking ground party, in a very new and raw space, soon to be the LA flagship. Along with several friends, local artists / designers / and bloggers we kicked of a wonderful evening celebrating art and design.

The street side windows covered in Tracy Hiner’s very, very cool wallpaper!

Inside the raw space, a current gallery of featured artists.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s Upper East Side NYC apartment is featured in the latest issue of ELLE DECOR magazine. It’s a stunning 10 room apartment located on Park Avenue. Ivanka worked closely with her interior designer to achieve a beautiful but functional home for her family.

The den features a Christian Liaigre sectional sofa and walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s Galveston Gray.

The mural in the entry foyer was hand painted by Bob George Studio.

The dining room features a Lindsey Adelman light fixture and Mies van der Rohe chairs.

The fun, vibrant lacquered blue desk in the den was custom designed by Trump’s designer.

The master bedroom features a custom designed headboard and side tables, with vintage 1940’s French stools at the foot of the bed.

The charming nursery includes an armchair and dresser from Restoration Hardware and the ceiling is wallpapered in a pattern from Sandberg.

To view the full spread, pick up the October issue of ELLE DECOR which hits newsstands this week!

This Fall, Marc Phillips Rugs will be holding a fundraiser to benefit PS Arts (a program devoted to ensuring art education in the community). In anticipation of the event, Ginna Christensen of Marc Phillips has invited eight Los Angeles based artists to design rugs for Marc Phillips, which will then be auctioned off to benefit PS Arts.

Recently, Ginna hosted a visit to meet one of the artists and tour his studio. Here’s a look “behind the scenes” of artist Cole Sternberg’s studio located here in Los Angeles.

A work in progress.
