Apartment Therapy Interviews Fuller + Roberts Co. Window Artist Jane Hallworth

If you don't know Jane Hallworth, you're not alone.  Despite being a favorite of young Hollywood (she counts Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams as clients), the discrete designer has kept a low profile. (It may be a family thing.  When her older sisters launched a jean company, they had to be coaxed into doing publicity.)  

Asked by The Hollywood Reporter, who named Jane one of their 25 Most Influential Interior Designers in LA in 2012, which set she was most anticipating, Jane responded "The Munsters remake for its gothic sensibility".  That phrase could also be used to describe Jane's work.  Intimate, complex, intriguing, her interiors are a blend of styles — 20th century furniture, antiques, cutting edge contemporary designer pieces — made whole through her innovative use of color and an architect's sense of balance and form.  Her distinct visual vocabulary has led to the launch of her first product line, debuting at Blackman Cruz in May.  Paying homage to American vernacular furniture, it captures the symbolic nature of iconic American pieces while adding a slightly dark, modern twist.

The Long Good Buy

Show room Items from Robert Trachtenberg’s office in the window of Fuller & Roberts Company in Los Angeles. After 24 years in the same rent-controlled apartment that I had used as my office (but absolutely not as a mortuary or dental practice, which everyone knows is against code, if you’re reading this, L.A. Housing Department), I got the heave-ho when the owners informed me that they needed the place for family. Having been in this one spot for so long, I actually began to look forward to moving, exploring a new part of town, and even gave some mild thought to deaccessioning some pieces I had collected over the years. On my first day of packing, however, I found a New Yorker cartoon that helped me make up my mind. It showed an old man lying on his deathbed. Looking up at a visitor, he says, “I should have bought more crap.”

The sentiment touched me deeply, so I called my friend Scott Roberts of Fuller & Roberts Company, an antiques shop in West Hollywood. I had thought it through logically: I love his taste, he’s got to love mine; he’ll sell what I’m not going to miss; and I’ll be able to buy more new old stuff. When he arrived to look at my things, though, I was struck with remorse over breaking up what I thought was a very cool assortment of urbane furniture and accessories. Half-jokingly, I told him, “You should just recreate my office in your window.” Oddly, he immediately agreed to do just that.

Move on Before vacating his office, Trachtenberg put his feet up one last time. So for a little while longer, if I drive up and down La Cienega Boulevard, I get to see the desk I bought off a security guard when I was photographing Minnie Driver at a deserted meatpacking warehouse. Or the lamp someone was clever enough to create from a beautiful pearl gray cathode ray tube. Or the gold crown I always worried was not really early 19th century but early Universal Studios prop department. Luckily on that one Jeffrey Smith, vice president of furniture and decorative arts at Bonhams auction house, confirmed that it was in fact, “a wonderful example of a gilt wood baldachin from the 19th century in the form of a ducal coronet harking back to medieval times.” Whew.

The mirror framed by delicately carved wood feathers came from an old lady who had lived next door to my mother. She had decided to have an estate sale but not let anyone in the apartment except Mom. This was before camera cellphones, so my mother described a few pieces, and I chose wisely, but phonetically. For some reason, I ended up with two identical limited-edition Fornasetti plates and an Hermès scarf no woman I knew was either willing or able to use properly.

Now, I could bang on about how we don’t really own anything, we just borrow it for a time, and how freeing it all feels, but in truth this was just a lot easier than selling on eBay or Craigslist, especially since Scott sent a truck. I didn’t mention it to many people, wondering if they’d notice. And sure enough, a friend called from his car: “You said you wouldn’t mind moving to a storefront office, but don’t you think you went too far?”

What I Saw Today

New York Illustrator Richard Haines Brings His Style Blog To Gallery Walls

Since 2008, Richard Haines has seduced fashion followers with his natty style sketches and impromptu portraits, scrawled on found materials ranging from a Starbucks napkin to the pages of a book on French paintings by Jean-Antoine Watteau (pictured above) and catalogued on his cult blog, What I Saw Today. A new show by the same name at the Fuller + Roberts Co. gallery in Los Angeles presents work inspired by the streets of New York and the front row. A former designer for brands including J. Crew and Calvin Klein, Haines launched WIST to raise his industry profile, but has since parlayed the online platform into a career as an in-demand fashion illustrator, contributing to The New York Times among others. “My background is in design, so when I do a sketch of a guy on the street I can pinpoint a detail because I understand it,” he says. NOWNESS talked specifics with him....

LA Times Article on Fuller + Roberts

Interior designer Scott Roberts, who recently completed the offices of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation in Beverly Hills, has teamed with his partner and L.A. Times Home section subject Bryan Fuller to create Fuller & Roberts.

The swank home decor boutique has handsomely refinished 20th century designs, Roberts' original furnishings and Fuller's stash of vintage movie posters -- all in one of the newest additions to the Collection, an upscale antiques and vintage cooperative on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The store reflects the partners' mutual appreciation for American and British decor in the 1900s, "when traditional and modern collided with swell results," Roberts says. "It's masculine, tailored and slightly screwball. Butch and pretty."

That's Fuller, best known as a writer-director, standing, and Roberts, sitting on the arm of his horse-hoofed Saratoga chair while puggle pup Lou hogs the seat. Fuller and Roberts launched the store with a party Sept. 30. Roberts filled the limestone fireplace with birch logs and a flat screen TV showing the 1940 screwball comedy "The Philadelphia Story." Guests admired equine lamps, including the cast bronze and limed oak Hitching Post floor lamp ($1,800) above, and drank a specially concocted cocktail called the Giddyup.

Why so much horsing around?

"I love horses and equestrian design. It's a perfect blend of beauty and utility," Roberts says.

At an early age, the designer fell under the spell of classic movies such as "The Philadelphia Story" and "Suspicion" and idealized the elegant athletic world they promoted.

"If I could make people enter the shop through a mud room, I would," he adds.

The Saratoga chair has solid maple horse hoof feet, right, hand carved by a Los Angeles artisan. The chair was designed with an extra deep seat for Roberts, who is 6-foot-5-inches.

"The generous proportions are meant to lure you into curling up with a book," he says.

Shown here in camel cashmere-wool, it costs $3,800; a version in black with lacquered hooves is the same price. If customers provide their own fabric, the chair costs $3,000 and takes six weeks to produce.

Fuller & Roberts is designed to look like a gentleman's living room, a contrast to the more cluttered spaces usually found in antiques collectives. Pictured here: on the left, a wing back chair upholstered in striped Irish linen (one of a pair priced at $4,200); in the foreground, left, a 1960s bronze cocktail table with an acid-etched chinoiserie pattern by Philip and Kelvin LaVerne ($10,500); and at right rear, a biscuit-tufted silk sofa with a lacquered base ($3,400). The black-and-white photos are by the Los Angeles artist Philip Pirolo.

A 1950s armchair, left, restored and reupholstered in a faux bois printed cotton is $2,200. At right, Roberts sits between two versions of his Triplicate lamp, "named after Fred Astaire's prize-winning thoroughbred in the 1940s," he says. It is made from a gypsum compound that has the feel of plaster without fragility. It is available in natural gesso and a black matte finish with a plaid wool shade for $2,400. The 22-karat gold leaf version is $3,800.
