Fabulous originality and inventiveness has gone into the creation of this extraordinary house design. Visualised by UDesign, this house is not only a luxury home but a work of art. From the outside entryway of the home with its dramatically aligned trees to the explosion of colour that awaits behind the door, this unique residence is designed for someone who loves to entertain, to impress, and who revels in the joys and discoveries of art. The tropical landscape also plays a major role within the superb interior, where it taps up against edge-to-edge windows and translates into sculptural indoor plants. The greenery joins a powerful palette of brights that paint energised and uplifting settings throughout.

Katalin Farnady’s private-label collection marries modern lines and Old World soul

Katalin Farnady never dreamed of designing a furniture collection, though many of her industry colleagues urged her to give it a go. Until one night in 2019, when she opened her sketch pad. “In 10 minutes, I had 40-some pieces drawn,” recalls the Annapolis-based interior designer. “It was in me all along, but I never let it come to the surface.”

In March, Farnady Furniture was born. A collection of 25 table and chair prototypes—many handmade locally by Niermann Weeks—expresses the designer’s eclectic, modern aesthetic.
