Kelly Wearstler, the queen of Californian boheme-style, has recently completed the interior of La Bonde cafe which just opened in San Francisco’s Proper Hotel. Inspired by French conceptual artist Daniel Buren and Viennese Secession art, she covered the walls and floors with hand-glazed vert tiles which are intersected by black and white stripes. The all-black barstools with fine metal legs and leather seats as well as the sculptural brass lights underline the warm elegance and subtle Art Deco charm of this inviting space.
another in my collection (i think i found this one in a thrift store in college when cameras were aplenty) and one of my all-time favorites due to its handsome deco face: "The Beau Brownie", designed by American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague for Kodak, known as the Art Deco gift camera (1928) - Thanks, Matt @a_divine_comedy for the info on WDT! #kodak#beaubrownie#boxcamera#walterdorwinteague#deco#artdeco
1501 Broadway, also known as the Paramount Building, is a 33-story office building between 43rd and 44th Streets in the Times Square neighborhood. It once housed the Paramount Theatre. Paramount Pictures, one of the American motion picture companies in the 1920s, built its headquarters at the 1501 Broadway location along with a cinematic theatre. At the time of its completion is was the tallest building in Times Square, and once sported an observation deck. Chicago architectural firm Rapp and Rapp were hired to design the new Manhattan flagship theatre and office tower. The Rapp Brothers created the 33-story office tower which was influence by the Art Deco style, and a theatre in the palatial Neo-Renaissance style behind it. In 1922, Paramount Pictures purchased the Putnam Building. Construction of the building began in November 1925. The Paramount Theatre opened a year later. With the spin-offs of the theater units in 1950 as United Paramount Theatre, Inc. (UPT) the building became the UPT’s headquarters being leased along with the theatre from Paramount Pictures. The building continued as American Broadcasting-Paramount Theatre’s headquarters after UPT’s merger with ABC. ABC moved to the ABC Building at 1330 Avenue of the Americas in 1965. The theatre was dismantled in 1967. Today, the Paramount Building is known for its large four-faced clock near the top of the pyramidal architectural feature, ( picture taken from website) with the hours denoted by five-pointed stars (forming a circle of stars as used in the Paramount Pictures logo),topped by an ornamental globe. The theatre entrance at the front of the Paramount Building is marked by a five-story arch on Broadway with an elaborate curved marquee which was restored in 2007. #newyorkcity#newyork#nyc#paramounttheatre#paramountbuilding#broadway#artdeco#neorenaissance#neorenaissancearchitecture#nycarchitecture#chicagoarchitects#paramountpictures#viewsfromanyctaxi
Ok, here is my first finished CAD design of 2019. I'm wanting to switch it up a bit stylistically and get into some slightly modern (?) Art Deco, what do you think?
Swipe to see the Mali Cinnamon Garnet center stone.
