Robin Standefer & Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams have been the “It” couple of design for the last few years, and deservedly so. With successful projects in New York like The Ace Hotel, The Dutch and 211 Elizabeth Street, to name a few–be it home, hotel or dining establishment–they have left their distinctive mark dotting the city. I have loved their very lived-in, slightly tarnished, highly visual aesthetic since their projects started popping up in design magazines and about the city. There is such attention to detail. Their new book, “Things We Made” arrived the other day at the shop. Just like a Roman and Williams project, the quite hefty coffee table sized book did not disappoint. It is filled with page after page of stylishly photographed projects. Of course, their home in the city and in Montauk were my favorite. I always love seeing the inside of creative folks’ homes, as they are filled with ideas and inspiration. This is a very cool book to add to your collection or for the design enthusiast in your life.
Happy Friday all!
