The Architectural Digest Design Show 2016

•••
The Architectural Digest Design Show just passed by, and with it came 400 amazing brands spanning across 25 different product categories. So unless you were able to run from booth to booth in record-breaking time, chances are you may have missed some of the best products the show had to offer. That’s why Styleture has brought to you a short list of the m[...]

The Christopher Kennedy Compound

•••
There is no formula for resurrecting a design trend. In 1984, Cara Greenberg published the book “Mid Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s,” which now represents the symbolic return of an aesthetic that had practically died out more than a decade earlier. Now, February of 2016 marks the seventh annual Modernism Week event celebrated in Palm Springs, Califor[...]

The Modern Library

•••
It is by no stretch of the imagination that Biblioteca Vasconelos was nicknamed by the press as “Megabiblioteca.” Looking like it was taken from a scene of Christopher Nolan’s Inception, it is almost hardly believable that this is an actual library. Located in the Northern region of Mexico City, the Alberto Kalach designed library is integrated into a botani[...]

Noho Vintage Woods

•••
Located in the Southeast corner of the San Fernando Valley lies a gold mine worth collection of two hundred year old Bavarian Spruce. While this up and coming niche of Los Angeles, the heart of the North Hollywood Arts District is largely known for its dance schools, art galleries, yoga studios, production shops, and theaters, one might not immediately e[...]

Lightovation - Best of Dallas Market Lighting

•••
The Superbowl comes a little early for those in the decorative lighting industry. From January 20th-24th, every relevant brand in the industry gathered in Dallas, Texas, for Lightovation, the Dallas International Lighting Market. We got to check out the Littman Brands showroom, arguably the most versatile and impressive out of the many companies that we [...]

European Stadium Design

•••
They call it a beautiful game. In addition to joining countries together in rare harmonious fashion, football also has shown us how architects have pushed boundaries for stadium design. Here at Styleture we took a look at a few of our most architecturally esteemed stadiums across five different countries. Aviva Stadium in Dublin Instead of, say, a theate[...]

Ronbow: Timeless Design Meets Modern Ingenuity

•••
There are few companies that have the ability to encompass historical design paradigms throughout their product collections. One brand that we have kept our eye on is Ronbow, a Northern California based luxury bathroom furnishings manufacturer. Ronbow has moved beyond established design niches, not only with their newly released Signature Series, but in [...]

Super Bowl - Stadium Design

•••
On February 7th the yearly pinnacle of American tradition and sporting lore, the Super Bowl, will find its way to Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium. Largely utilitarian, NFL stadiums have typically fail to bound beyond a heaping oval of cement and steel, usually more reminiscent of a military complex than a beautifully designed destination for entertainment. [...]

High-Tech Home Favorites from CES 2016

•••
Ronbow We got to tour NextGen HomeTV’s SmartHome in person, an entire model home built on eco-conscious design. One company that caught our eye was Ronbow, a Northern California-based luxury bathroom furnishings manufacturer. Remember those outdated globe vanity lights that remind you of a tacky 1970s Hollywood dressing room? Well, now Ronbow has incorp[...]

Best Designed Indoor Venues

•••
Indoor performances bring a dramatically different tone to a show than their outdoor counterparts. Theaters and arenas alike fully enclose the crowd and allow them to forget about the outside world altogether for a brief moment in time. A great deal of this is owed to the architecture that the audience is immersed in, as well as the fact that lights, eff[...]
