Dressing Lualdi Porte

A while back I was asked by Snaidero to dress their first floor east entrance window located at the Merchandise Mart. It is a corner display of striking custom cabinetry by Lualdi Porte; the curves of the cabinetry are inviting and seductive. If you ask the showroom for a tour they can take you in for a closer look to view the wine cellar display on the other side.  Snaidero is an excellent portal for finely designed Italian kitchens, closets, bathrooms, and custom millwork.

The accessories I chose to highlight the Lualdi millwork were selected in a neutral palette with highlights of metallics, such as the Waylande Gregory vase from Elements, and vintage wine bottles from Argentina. The key to dressing shelving is editing your pieces and attempting to make each selection meaningful. Adding a little whimsey and humor can be fun, like the leather horse from Architectural Artifacts that’s positioned, enjoying a drink of wine. The coco and ivory toned Turkish rug runner, from Yoruk Rug Gallery, grounds the space; the birch wood pile prepared for the fireplace tones down the electronics and begets a cozy feel.
