Gorgeously unique rooms. Every time we see a photo of something the design duo of Wary Meyers has done, we like it. Perfectly riding some kind of 21st century decor wave, they pull together a mix of items in a modern, eclectic, way with a sharp eye and (we suspect) a very thorough knowledge of design history. Coming to their Decorative Arts company from the worlds of retail display and advertising graphic design, they have an unmistakable aesthetic that may only be reproducible if you have a serious vintage habit. We really enjoyed the fact that Domino showed off their sweet apartment in Portland, Maine in the March "Green Issue".
Domino featured the fact that they are "curatorial collectors"; that they spend time each day checking estate sales, flea markets, vintage shops and dumpsters for their finds. Thier place in the "green" theme is secured by the fact that they make used items very fashionable, what they work with is "salvaged chic".
A quote from the article: "It's not that we are against new stuff, per se", Linda explains, "It's just that there are so many exquisitely designed pieces out there that are crying out for the chance to live new lives. They're so much better ff with us and our clients than in a landfill!".
We love that they love one of our all-time favorite used decor book finds (that we look at all the time) - the 1974 version of the House Book by Terence Conran. It's absolutely worth searching out and finding a spot on a book shelf for it - tons of inspiration. For lots more of Wary Meyers work visit their site which is loaded with good photos (and pick up the March issue of Domino for new photos and resource info).
