66 BRAZILIAN BEAUTIES AT ORNARE T exas Design Week Dallas sponsor Ornare celebrated the launch of the Wide Line Collection from Brazil with an evening blowout in Ornare's newly renovated 4,000-square-foot show- room in Dallas Design District. Guests sipped cocktails as they wandered through the sleek space, outfitted with Wide Line's interconnected and modular cabinets, clos- ets, baths, and kitchens. Nut brown, dune, and dove gray, are the colors of the mo- ment at Ornare, and bathed the evening's guests in a sophisticated glow. The new collection is designed by Ornare art direc- tor Ricardo Bello Dias and Ornare Studio, and explores the theme of living in a fluid environment. We can drink to that. Seen: Olavo Faria, director of Ornare Dallas, and wife, Fernanda Faria; Elizabeth, Don and Jan Weempe, Sam Saladino, Barbara Buzzell, Jeff Levine, Larry Button, Erin Embry, Mary Ann Branham, Doniphan Moore, Ginger Price, Annie Trotter, and Rick Rozas. Rebecca Sherman MODERN MASTERPIECES AT ARIA STONE W hen Aria Stone's April Graves opened the show- room to host a panel on Texas modernism, the studio was staged more like an art gallery, with slabs of beautiful granite, marble and stone installed as sculp- tural works. A massive charcuterie spread anchored the space and proved the perfect gathering point. The cause to celebrate was Helen Thompson's new book, Texas Made/Texas Modern: The House and the Land. Thompson moderated a panel dis- cussion with designers and architects whose projects appear in the book, followed by a book signing. Frontgate served as a spon- sor. Speaking on all things modern Larry Speck, Svend Fruit, Jessica Stewart Lendvay, Paul Draper, and Jason Smith. Riveted guests: Courtney Gilstrap, Mark Marynick, Christine Cagliostro, manager J. Elliott Fischer, Richard Mullen, Kara and Clay Kennedy, Melinda Draper, Pam Garnett, Robin Riddle and Signe Smith.
