In his own words: Dec­o­ra­tor Dean van Aswe­gen’s ex­u­ber­antly luxe and tai­lored style cues

Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN NOTES -

1. The print above my bed is from Lemon; it’s an acrylic print that looks chic and sharp. 2. I’m be­side my­self about gem, or­na­men­tal stone and me­te­orite auc­tions. There was one re­cently at Stephan Welz & Co. and this rare Esquel me­te­orite slice, found in 1951, was my fave. 3. This was the first piece of fur­ni­ture I ever bought: a tall­boy from this great vin­tage store called Die Ossewa An­tiques near Franschhoek. 4. When you find a fab­u­lous up­hol­stery fab­ric, work it in on un­usual shaped fur­ni­ture. This is Zinc Tex­tile ‘Capel Marl’ from Romo. 5. The ‘Planalto’ din­ing ta­ble from Okha is per­fec­tion; so sexy, but a tad too big for my apart­ment. 6. The ‘Peggy’ pen­dant light by Vis­tosi from Lu­mi­art, with black Mu­rano bands around the orbs, has a great in­dus­trial gloss to it. 7. These La Grange In­te­ri­ors side ta­bles are the most ver­sa­tile size and look cool in pairs. 8. How did we sur­vive be­fore Coun­try Road Home? I’m into their mi­cro meal tools, aka bar-snack bling, and this cheese knife set be­cause in­ter­est­ing-look­ing ob­jets, even on an empty board.
