Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson of Drake/Anderson delight in creating imaginative rooms that emphasise the precious alongside the everyday. This book documents the firm s fearless, eclectic, and deeply informed modernist sensibility in thirteen remarkable residences. The two expand on their point of view in a series of themed essays that illuminate the hallmarks of their bold style: Confident, Sexy, Witty, and Precious. The projects span the world from London to Arizona and New York State (Long Island and Columbia County), in addition to the firm s Manhattan work (uptown, midtown, and downtown, East Side and West). For an international couple s pied-a-ciel on Billionaire s Row, the pair devised a platinum-and-pearl backdrop for spaces filled with a provocative potpourri of materials wood, lacquer, stone, gypsum, glass, velvet, leather, mirror, and bronze. With a sensitive roof-to-slab renovation of a glass house in upstate New York, the two refashioned a private oasis where contemporary pieces, many with references to nature, mix with custom items of the firm s design and an occasional element of midcentury modern. In a full-floor Upper East Side residence in a twenty-first-century building, they wove decorative threads of jewel tones, linear and curved forms, metals, lacquers, stones, sensuous fabrics, and works of art into an extremely glamorous yet family-friendly narrative. With a full renovation of a 1910 estate on Long Island, the duo brought a Georgian brick manse fully into the world of today by amalgamating the fine antiques the owners passionately love with modern and contemporary art. The work of Drake/Anderson harkens to the finest decorators of yesterday, while being firmly focused on the design sensibilities of today and the future.
