When Jennifer Sagum embarked on a gut renovation of her family’s Williamsburg home, she need not look far for inspiration. Having spent the past eighteen years immersed in the world of Marc Jacobs, she drew upon her keen eye and fashion sensibility to inform the creative process. "I’ve been vintage shopping since I was in 7th grade…I wear a lot of Marc and mix it with vintage. That’s how I wanted my home to be," the VP of Global Advertising & Media shares. To curate the perfect mix of old and new, Sagum turned to interior designer and vintage dealer Jennifer Chused of Chused & Co. Like Sagum, Chused began her career in fashion—first at Donna Karan and later at publications like Italian Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Elle. "The house is very fashion," remarks Chused, who referenced Sagum’s own style of dressing as a source of inspiration. The pair hit it off and worked together to create a space that celebrates pattern and whimsy in a sophisticated way.Read More >

A. Lawrence Smart, Luthier, builds a limited number of mandolin family instruments. His goal is always to build the finest custom instrument to meet each player's discriminating needs. He enjoys providing musicians with instruments they can own and play with as much pride as he took when he built it.
All instruments are carefully crafted with the finest materials available. The building process begins with the selection and harvest of Engelmann spruce in the forests surrounding McCall, Idaho, and continues with uncompromised craftsmanship and attention to detail. These custom instruments sound and feel as good as they look, and great care is given in every step - from design, to matching of woods, to finish and set-up.
Sun Valley Bronze has a tradition of creativity and quality craftsmanship that has carried it through over 20 years of business...
