Kelly Wearstler takes stock of the limited-edition artworks from her eponymous gallery’s newest collections.
“I am always looking for artful and sculptural objects and furniture,” says designer Kelly Wearstler, who has a habit of collaborating with furniture designers on custom pieces for her projects (including Viceroy and Proper hotels and private clients including Cameron Diaz). Now, the multi-hyphenate creative is opening up her black book of sources with the expansion of her online gallery concept, featuring eight new collections of unique and limited-edition artwork, sculptural objects, furniture and lighting. Wearstler tapped new artists she discovered on Instagram, while others are longtime collaborators Wearstler has worked with for years. One enduring partnership is with Austrian furniture designer Felix Muhrhofer. For the new Gallery collection, Wearstler and Muhrhofer teamed up on a series of monolithic terrazzo tables comprised of stones that Wearstler collected from the beach in front of her home in Malibu and stones that Muhrhofer collected in Italy. Wearstler also tapped Amelia Briggs on sculptural inflated metallic mirrors; Grace Whiteside of Sticky Glass on glassware; and Israeli artist Hagit Pincovici on neon and stone sculptures. Each piece seems so different from the next, but part of Wearstler’s magic is finding common ground. She says, “We want to show our community how these seemingly contrasting pieces can live together harmoniously.” kellywearstler.com.
