WHY HOARDING BE­CAME COOL AGAIN

Town & Country (Philippines) - - MASTERS OF DESIGN - FEDERICO DE VERA

De­spite his youth­ful ap­pear­ance, the Philip­pine na­tive Federico de Vera has been craft­ing mod­ern-day cab­i­nets of cu­riosi­ties, as well as his own jew­elry cre­ations, since 1991. In the process he has earned the loy­alty of such cre­ative lead­ers as stylist Lori Gold­stein, pho­tog­ra­pher Bruce We­ber, and rug de­signer Made­line Wein­rib.

“He’s re­ally an artist,” Wein­rib says. “There’s al­ways a sur­prise at his New York store—some­thing I haven’t no­ticed be­fore. He cre­ates drama and a sense of theater sim­ply by the way he ar­ranges and re­ar­ranges ob­jects.”
