BY REBECCA SHERMAN 80 PHOTOGRAPHY: HEATHER HAWKINS, JANE SOBEL KLONSKY THE CULT OF CABANA MARTINA MONDADORI SARTOGO, FOUNDER OF THE OBSESSIVELY COOL DESIGN MAGAZINE CABANA, IS IN HOUSTON THIS MONTH FOR TEXAS DESIGN WEEK. HERE, SHE TALKS ALL THINGS TABLETOP, SOUKS AND CAIRO. M artina Mondadori Sartogo had her fi nger on the pulse of a new design direction when she launched Cabana m a g a z i n e i n London in 2014. Since then, it's become one of the most coveted and sumptuous magazines in the world of design. Layered with pattern and decorative elements, fi lled with rooms bursting with possessions and collections, it's composed of tactile papers and jacketed with fabric. Last fall, she published her fi rst book, Cabana Anthology (Vendome, $95), a lush collection of interiors from the magazine's last 10 issues. Like any globetrotting tastemaker, Mondadori Sartogo is also a lifestyle brand. The Cabana website sells her collection of furnishings, dinnerware, glassware, tabletop, linens, silk scarves, and jeweled gold cuffs. Recently, she teamed with Lauren Santo Domingo to carry Cabana-designed products on the Moda Operandi website. Mondadori Sartogo spent the past year collaborating with designers Aerin Lauder and Richard Ginori on new tabletop collections, which will launch on the Cabana and Moda Operandi websites in Spring 2019 (See our story on page 7). She's working on an upcoming tabletop collaboration with an important American fashion brand — it's hush-hush for now, but we'll keep you posted. PaperCity caught up via email with Mondadori Sartogo at Cabana's London offi ces, where she was working on the Spring 2019 issue.
