Liston Collection 2017

 

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.

  •  Assisi Tables: A torchiere Horn discovered in a Mexico City flea market inspired these tables. The side table is $465 and a drink version is $265. Both tables are available now with lighting coming out later this year.
  • Nail Mirror: A 1920’s French piece sparked the creation of this mirror. Each nail is hand wrought and the small or large mirrors are available in gold leaf, silver leaf or a solid black finish. The 25- inch mirror is $595 and the larger 45-inch is $975.
  • Wood Chain: This is a fun, personal piece because it’s movable. The hand-carved wood links come in a gold or silver leaf finish and can be displayed and arranged according to one’s whim. The three-link chain is 33 inches long and eight inches wide and is priced at $749.50. Additional links may be added.
  • Bronze Hand Sculpture: Used as bookends or decorative accessories, Horn’s hand sculptures are inspired by a large collection of original wax molds of silver screen stars’ hands that Horn found for sale in Los Angeles. After she chose a mold, the seller revealed the hand belonged to Judy Garland. One sculpture is $95. A bronze hand candle holder is $85.
  • Marrakesh Mirror: Made of hand-wrought iron and finished by hand in silver leaf or gold leaf. Available in small or large from $495 to $795.
