Santa Fe Style

Author: Carly Scholl
Issue: July, 2017, Page 17
The heart of MODERN SANTA FE STYLE lies in handmade goods and historical inspiration

Embracing Heritage
Authentic Navajo textiles are essential in New Mexican design. A 1930s wool saddle blanket handwoven in a sumptuous palette of brown, ivory, gray and crimson looks stunning as a decorative wall hanging. Similar styles range from $2,000-$5,000. (shiprocksantafe.com)

Let the Light InThe Casa Chandelier from Hinkley evokes images of an intimate colonial chapel aglow with candlelight. Gracefully sculpted wrought iron, hand-forged scrollwork and antique scavo glass balance this old-world-style fixture with equal parts romance and drama. $2,779 (hinkleyslighting.com)

Accessorize With Art
Jeweler Claire Kahn’s pointillist-inspired crochet beadwork exemplifies the colors, forms and textures of the desert. Serpentine necklaces and bracelets comprise cylindrical glass beads woven together into smooth strands and adorned with natural elements, such as semiprecious stones, gold, coral and gleaming freshwater pearls. $1,335 (patina-gallery.com)
From the EarthOften mistaken for glass, Robert Cherry’s one-of-a-kind wood vessels are meticulously turned, stained in brilliant shades and inlaid with crushed turquoise for a showstopping Santa Fean look. $3,200 (lanninggallery.com)


More Than StorageMerging desert motifs, Modernist forms and Spanish colonial-style craftsmanship, designer Emily Henry creates original works of art in wood at her Santa Fe studio. Measuring 36"H by 72"W by 18"D, her Happy’s Curios Credenza is carved from pine and features a bas relief of robust prickly pear. $15,875 (millicentfurniture.com)
New Heights Arizona-based carpenter Chase Warren embraces the materials long-used in the American Southwest—walnut, leather, brass—and transforms them into striking, modern furnishings. Featuring clean lines and a sienna-hued leather backrest, this bespoke bar stool exudes style through simplicity. $579 (chasewarrendesign.com)
