BOLD: The Interiors of Drake/Anderson
The first book from Drake/Anderson illustrates the award-winning firm’s opulent modernist design with interiors that are as unique and expressive as they are inviting and livable.
Principals Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson delight in creating imaginative rooms that emphasize the precious alongside the everyday. Drake is known for his fearless use of color as well as his fashion-conscious sensibility. Anderson is lauded for his layered approach and the confidence with which he juxtaposes a variety of historic periods. While firmly focused on contemporary design, their work harkens back to the legendary designers and decorators of yesterday.
Drake/Anderson’s deeply informed yet accessible modernist sensibility is exemplified by eleven remarkable residences, from Manhattan to London to Arizona, in a full spectrum of rich jewel tones and textures. In an aerie with panoramic views, the pair devised a platinum-and-pearl backdrop for a provocative potpourri of materials—wood, lacquer, stone, gypsum, glass, velvet, leather, mirror, and bronze. Whether refashioning a private oasis in the woods, where contemporary pieces mix with custom items of the firm’s design, or bringing a stately 1910 house fully into the present by amalgamating the owners’ antiques with modern and contemporary art, Drake/Anderson embraces a dynamic eclecticism all its own.
