WHEN ART MEETS DESIGN By Hunt Slonem, Assouline Publishing

WHEN ART MEETS DESIGN – When Art Meets Design offers an exciting view into artist Hunt Slonem ’s fantastically decorated and meticulously restored homes. Slonem rescues and refurbishes historic houses—such as Cordts Mansion in upstate New York, and his two Southern mansions in Louisiana, named Albania and Lakeside—enhancing them with his extraordinary decorating style. “My work is really about the Garden of Eden. I noticed as a child growing up in Hawaii that nature is a gift. “ — Hunt Slonem Pairing vintage furniture with contemporary art, including many of his own works, and also pieces by Alex Katz and Andy Warhol, Slonem creates spectacular spaces. Vivid and expansive interior photography reveals how the artist combines antiques, fabrics, and artworks, offering an exciting view into his unique world, and his extraordinary studio in Manhattan. “Repetition is very important,” says the artist, who starts each day painting, treating the creative process as “a kind of meditation,” he says. Included in this ritual are his famous bunny paintings—the result of a daily morning warm-up that was sparked during a late-night revelation at a Chinese restaurant: that he was born in the Year of the Rabbit.
