The Los Angeles design studio recently teamed up with Hollywood member’s club The Aster to craft marketing and design campaigns befitting the private hotel, wellness center, lounge, and recording studio’s status as a stylish playground for rising creatives and executives. The resulting website, photography, and overall brand storytelling create a digital footprint that’s as chic as The Aster itself.

One of the Italian furniture purveyor’s most evocative muses is Porto Rafael: an “eccentric nobleman’s” archipelagic village in Sardinia. Porto Rafael has seen the nascence of numerous furniture collections and a collaboration with Paola Navone in the form of a home filled with site-specific custom furnishings created by the designer. Ethimo’s cocoon-like Rafael collection, which features fabrics designed by Navone, is the latest launch to be informed by this corner of Mediterranean paradise.

The lighting design studio founded by Sally Thomas Cooper and Jason Kai Cooper debuted their spring collection at ICFF in May. Alabaster was a recurring material throughout the collection’s three models, including their Cento pendant; Faro, a totemic rubbed bronze floor lamp; and Prima, a sculptural wall fixture in which a ribbon of bronze encircles an illuminated half-moon of the marbled stone.

Collectors would do well to note that pieces from Le Costes, Jean-Louis Costes’ hotel that Christian Liaigre fashioned in the style of a “neo-classical Parisian mansion” as his final project, are available for purchase. The Costes x Liaigre capsule collection includes the Castiglione sofa, Carrousel side table, Mont-Thabor armchair, Rivoli reading lamp, and Cambon chair—each of which were created for the five-star hotel Jean-Louis and Christian realized together.
