Villa Vizcaya

—01. The gardens.

Words

Villa Vizcaya is the former estate of a wealthy businessman named James Deering. It’s located on Biscayne Bay in the Coconut Grove neighbourhood in Miami. The property was designed by Paul Chalfin, a former curator, interior designer and painter, who helped Deering assemble a collection of antiquities, art items and architectural elements. Together they successfully created an estate that resembles an old Italian Renaissance villa. The main draw is the beautiful, expansive and well-maintained gardens. Considered to be one of America’s most important Gilded Age estates, and now open to the public, I highly recommend stopping by if you find yourself in Miami.

Words

The latest issue of The New Yorker features a wonderful look at the daily life, background, and achievements of world-renowned curator, Hans Ulrich Obrist. D.T. Max does an excellent job of painting a picture of Obrist's high-paced lifestyle, for better or worse; his triumphs; some lesser successes; and what he's attempting to accomplish through consuming and distilling all that he sees.

Zeitlos – Berlin

Words

I’m always looking for both furniture inspiration and a great shop that collects a large selection of fairly specific items. Zeitlos – Berlin is most definitely both of these things but, for me, price and proximity mean that it functions best as the former. If these limitations are less of an issue, it's an amazing treasure trove where you can buy some very rare and appealing design classics from a variety of iconic eras.

Mauna Kea Dual Tone Slub Knit Socks

01. Grey and red.
02. Green and grey.

Words

Melange socks are nothing new, to say the least, but these are a unique take on a much utilized form. The multiple two-tone pairings offer a number of great colour choices, while a loose knit, achieved with machines that produce 60 stitches rather than the standard 170-180, means a thicker yarn can be used, which adds flexibility and makes them much more comfortable.

Available from Couverture & The Garbstore
