I am working on finalizing a collection of tableware in partnership with Nicholas Newcomb. We had planned to launch these this spring, pre–COVID-19. That said, we are taking this gift of time to refine and push our designs further along with anticipation for a fall debut.

What book are you reading?

Twentieth-Century Decoration by Stephen Calloway. It’s been nearly 30 years since it was first published, yet I have found it to be more comprehensive and in-depth than any contemporary text on the subject.

What TV show are you bingeing?

I can’t get enough of Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep.

What are you online shopping for right now?

For projects, I’m online shopping for everything—antiques, art, furnishings, fabrics. This has taken some getting used to; prior to home isolation, I rarely bought for projects online, so I’ve turned to people I have a history with and trust. Some include John Derian, Nickey Kehoe, The Antique and Artisan Gallery, Michael Trapp, R.T. Facts, Avery & Dash, and David Bell Antiques.

Joe Nahem

What personal design, art, or craft projects are you taking on right now?

Working with some of the talented craftspeople and artisans we’ve met, mostly on Instagram, to develop new applications. As everyone around the globe is in the same situation, we look forward to pooling our talents for these collaborations.

What TV show are you bingeing?

Shrill, Patrick Melrose, and The Price Is Right—so much positive energy.

What are you online shopping for right now?

Outdoor furniture, food, masks, hair dye, oxygen meters…tough times.

Amy Lau

What book are you reading?

I am devouring Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art by Mary Gabriel. This Pulitzer Prize finalist is a page-turner about seriously gutsy women who broke into a world then only welcome to men. In many ways, they paved the way for female designers like myself.

What movies are you watching?

All the Ken Burns documentaries I can get my hands on. Ken Burns can tell a story like nobody’s business.

How are you de-stressing?

Not watching the news.

Veere Grenney

What personal design, art, or craft projects are you taking on right now?

This is a great opportunity to make copies of all the illustrations from my library of design books and put them into order. Elements like this, which one always promises oneself one will do, suddenly become possible in the adversity we are faced with.

What TV show are you bingeing?

Any cooking program or gardening program I can find, as I am dreaming of new ways of making self-isolation more attractive.

What are you online shopping for right now?

A new television!

Will Cooper

What personal design, art, or craft projects are you taking on right now?

I’ve been sketching a lot—which I rarely have time to do when we are full swing at the office. It has been nice to wake up with a burning desire to get out an idea and actually have the time to work on it. My personal ideas typically evolve into something for a project we are working on at the studio. Give me too much time to think and I will redesign something a million times until they make me stop!

What movies are you watching?

Hot Summer Nights—a cheaper thrill, but visually very well done, and good for a dose of nostalgia when you’re yearning for those high school summer days.

Are you working on any home improvement or redecorating projects at home?
