inside the creative’s studio.

Last Tuesday, New York Cottages & Gardens toasted the fall season with a cocktail reception that went above and beyond excellent champagne; guests had the rare opportunity to explore designer Madeline Weinrib‘s studio, getting an insider’s look at everything from her idea boards to her works-in-progress.

D-C arrived fashionably late to the event, but just in time for the elegant toasts by NYC&G Editor-in-Chief Kendell Cronstrom and Madeline Weinrib, both of whom are more than excited for the busy fall season. And then: the studio tour. Weinrib’s atelier and showroom is designer heaven, set in an expansive loft with high ceilings and a lot of windows that boldly defies the cool, minimalist spaces that seem to define the contemporary work space. Part antiquarian vitrine, part SoHo chic, the loft is graciously filled with every color of the spectrum; the bold patters of Weinrib’s collections; books on art, design, and some invaluable classics; textile samples in baskets and on shelves; an entire wall of photographs from India; über-comfortable chairs and floor poufs; objects acquired during far-off travels—the list goes on—all representing the designer’s personality in material form, and providing her with daily inspiration.

Take a look, and be inspired for yourself:
