Behind the Design

Old-School Craftsmanship Meets Contemporary Design

A beautiful chair designed by Hellman-Chang.


I was recently on a business trip to Dallas and was reviewing a past issue of INTERIORS Magazine, when I ran across a lovely lamp I just had to bring to your attention. Unique amongst other floor lamps and slightly exotic, the Anora by the Brooklyn-design studio Hellman-Chang gets an A+.

As I was at the Dallas Design Center, I managed to stop by The David Sutherland Showroom where I saw it in the flesh – the scale and proportion of the piece is right on and the leaning base and cantilevered lampshade just add a touch of whimsy.

To me, a piece like this represents luxury – it’s not about the label (or lack thereof) or price, but about a handsome well-made object of exceptional quality.
