S23 E17 – Mid-Life Breakthrough with Darla Powell

Today’s Chaise Lounge showcases Miami designer Darla Powell of Darla Powell Interiors. Powell is a former Miami cop of 19 years who decided to follow her childhood compulsion to redecorate into an interior design career in 2017.

S23 E16 – Team Design with Pillar and Peacock Founders Brandeis Short and Adrianne Bugg

Today on the Chaise Lounge, Nick talks with two guests, the co-founders of Pillar and Peacock Adrianne Bugg and Brandeis Short. 

Adrianne Bugg spent five years in finance before eventually joining up with Brandeis to start the firm. When she told her mother about it, it turns out she had saved her past sketch books for the day her daughter figured out the direction she needed.

Bugg’s direction dovetailed with Short’s. Brandeis Short majored in fine art and dance and needed to find a practical channel for those early career choices. 

So in 2011, they founded Pillar and Peacock together. Today, Pillar and Peacock is a small and thriving residential and commercial design and architecture firm.

To see the work they do, visit Pillar and Peacock’s website PillarAndPeacock.com and follow the Instagram @pillar_and_peacock.

"Havana...really is a city of roamantic decay."

Today’s episode of The Chaise Lounge is a double header. Nick’s two guests are High Point Market’s Brand Ambassador Jackie Von Tobel and New York/ California/ New Mexico designer Jonathan Berger. 

Jackie Von Tobel is a designer who brands herself as colorful, classy, cool. She and Nick talk about what to look forward to at Fall High Point Market and the value of going to markets and experiencing the breadth of all the products the industry has to offer. 

Jonathan Berger tells Nick about his design journey from Pasadena, California to all over the world. Berger feeds his creativity by revisiting his love for antiques at fairs all over Europe and the U.S. 

Make sure to visit both these designers at their websites JackieVonTobel.com and JohnathanBergerInteriorDesign.com 

If you’re going to High Point Market, make sure to keep an eye out for the fuschia-shirted High Point Paparazzi and remember to get photos from them throughout Market.

Social media plays a big part in that these days, as does making regular visits to the design markets and taking part in speaking opportunities. It is vital for anyone producing signature collections to be visible at market
