Today, Tiffany Howell is joining us for Friday Five!
I’m an avid record collector. There’s romance to the ritual of putting a record on and listening to the tone, and the specialness of old record covers. It helps to inspire my creative visions.
2. 1960s and 70s Italian + French Furniture Design
1960s and 70s Italian and French furniture designs absolutely captivate me. I’m a long time fan of Gabriella Crespi’s rattan and brass work. I love the sculptural furniture of Pierre Paulin. The craftsmanship of the 1960s and 70s European furniture feels very artistic to me.
YSL has the perfect juxtaposition of masculine and feminine energy. Their designs beautifully encapsulate the romantic rock and roll aesthetic that I hold dear to me.
4. Old Hollywood Architecture
I have a deep nostalgia for Old Hollywood glamor. My favorite places are the Chateau Marmont and the pink 1920s homes of old starlets. Before we had our studio, we’d rent a suite at the Chateau Marmont and hold our meetings there.
5. Female Nude Paintings
I’ve always used art as an expression of who I want to be. I started collecting female nude paintings because I felt they expressed femininity and freedom and the beauty of form.
