AUSTIN, TEXAS (February 17, 2017): Designer Rachel Horn will debut her breathtaking Liston (Ribbon) line of custom pieces as part of her collection that will be on display at the Architectural Digest Design Show in New York City on March 16 to 19, 2017.
As much works of art as furniture, the Liston line features a made-to-order coffee table with a glass top, and a floor lamp and table lamp with custom black shades. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind sculpture, made of hand-wrought steel by artisan ironsmiths. Finishes include natural bronze, oil-rubbed bronze and old-world gold leaf. The table starts at $9,750. Lamps start at $1,800.
INSPIRATION FOR THE RACHEL HORN LISTON LINE
Rachel Horn, an interior designer with offices in Austin, Texas and in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, says, “With this line I was inspired by the graceful movements, sweet laughter and beauty of two little girls playing in the square in my hometown of San Miguel. Each girl held sticks with colorful ribbons and balloons tied to them, and they were running and twirling the toys in the air, spinning with their dancing ribbons. Later I was struck by an image of an elegant swirling ribbon in metal. After several days of non-stop sketching and a couple of years of perfecting the ribbon as I had imagined, the line came to fruition.”
AT HOME IN THE WORLD: THE RACHEL HORN COLLECTION
Horn’s collection and projects are influenced by many cultures and reflect her nomadic lifestyle. The elegant selection of home décor and accessories Horn designed are hand-crafted by artisans who specialize in hand wrought iron, cast bronze and carved wood. Gold and silver leaf finishes add depth to the pieces. The following pieces will be in the booth at the AD show and are available online at rachelhorn.com and in her store Rachel Horn Home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Rachel Horn found her love of the perfect thing for the right place while surrounded by the classic stone buildings and churches of San Miguel de Allende where she spent her childhood. Today, San Miguel is home to a design office and store, Rachel Horn Home, and is where her furniture and accessories are hand-crafted by third generation artisans. Horn’s work has been published in numerous books and international publications.
