Today on The Chaise Lounge, Nick has two conversations with designers who focus on different areas of “green” design, Deborah DiMare from Miami and Angelo Adamo out of Michigan.

S21 E2 – Hudson Valley Design Leader Maryline Damour

Maryline Damour is a designer based in Kingston, New York. Damour worked in marketing for most of her adult life until she bought a house in Kingston and began to wonder about the viability of working on interiors. But she dismissed the idea until an earthquake in her native Haiti helped her understand the importance of interior design and pushed her into her new career, which has included the restoration of a damaged but structurally-sound Haitian church.

S21 E1 – Biker Architecture and Design with Massimo Minale

Welcome back to The Chaise Lounge. In the first episode of season 21, Nick talks to Stockholm-based, London-born designer Massimo Minale, founder of Buster + Punch a home fashion and custom motorcycle company that he started as a way to feel more creatively fulfilled after days of putting effort into architecture projects he might never see turn into a building.

After making bikes for such clients as Keith Richards, Minale found himself getting requests for furniture that matched the aesthetic of the bikes, resulting in The Rockstar Bar. From there, Buster + Punch moved toward making fashionable home products that were just a step up from the local hardware store without being ludicrously expensive. As an architect, Minale was often frustrated by the process of sourcing pieces both liked and was happy budgeting for. So Buster + Punch launched a line of fashion light switches consumers and designers could be excited to use and be happy to pay for.

To see more of what Buster + Punch is doing, visit busterandpunch.us or busterandpunch.com and follow on Instagram @busterandpunch to see how the products look in action and the anouncement of new products.

My original goal was to get people interested in interiors that never thought they would be interested in interiors.
