Elle Decor's 5 Designers to Watch: Oliver M. Furth

Last week, we finished looking at the designers selected by Elle Decor as the top 25 of 2010 (see Parts I-VIII for images). But there are five more that they featured as the ones to watch. Yesterday we posted images from Jesse Carrier's portfolio.

The second of the five is Oliver M. Furth, whom Elle Decor describes as "thoroughly grounded in classical traditions, though he approaches them with aristo irreverence and West Coast optimism. Furth's inviting interiors go from suave and swank to colorful and cheeky, and often include reclaimed materials."

Rich colors matched with dark woods and collections (books, prints) hold the most appeal for me in this portfolio. What do you think?

Next, we'll continue with the third on the list, Grant K. Gibson.

  1. I do like the classic elements of these rooms Except for the super dark emphasis and the sparkly feathery throw on the bed they would work well at Style Key West. On second thought, amybe the sparkly feathery throw would be just the ticket for some Key Westers.
    What I love best though is the Elle Decor description of Oliver's work - especially "aristo irreverence". I wonder if that could apply to us. Irreverent, maybe and maybe aristo. I don't know what it means but it sounds good. I know we have Key West optimism and "suave, swanky and cheeky" sounds like fun. Maybe we should work on that
