Chanel Métiers d’Arts Show 2015

It was one of the most beautiful event I’ve ever experienced in New York.  The clothes were out of this world by the sublime Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel inspired by Salzburg, Austria this season.  The interior of the Park Avenue Armory were transformed into salons with many French/ Austrian chairs furnished like Paris 1920 couturier atelier.

With the up to the minute celebrities like Beyoncé, Pharrell, Kendall Jenner with her Mother in attendance and so many Chanel clients dressed to the nines in their best Chanel attire.  It was an evening for the books! — Stephen Sills

Celebrating Matisse – Stephen talks to AD how Matisse had influenced his work

In celebration of the highly anticipated exhibit “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs” at MoMA.  Architectural Digest sat down with Stephen Sills and chat about his introduction to Matisse and how the artist’s work had influenced his own work.

“AD100 interior designer Stephen Sills also worked with original Matisses for a project on Long Island’s North Shore (shown). “The first time I really realized the genius of Matisse was when I was in college and saw a reproduction of The Red Studio,” he says. “That’s when I was really getting immersed in interior design, and that entire canvas is divided into planes of rooms, furniture, and objects. It’s obviously a beautiful masterpiece but was for me just the beginning of the work I would soon discover from this truly amazing and inspiring artist.”
