115 A crowd from the design world took in Sartogo's new Venetian-glass tabletop wares, and TXDW sponsor McClain Gallery — Moxie's neighbor — had two important works on display: David Sultan's Black Tulips and Vase and Cleve Gray's Conjunction #199. Over cocktails, Sartogo revealed the inspiration for her design magazine, Cabana. While living in England, she was homesick for the historical and layered interiors she grew up in, so she began photographing eccentric, curiosity-filled villas and palazzos of family friends. And while the magazine is lauded for worshipping maximalism, in her view it's actually a celebration of authenticity. This legitimacy doesn't always come in the form of more is more. "I was blown away by The Menil Collection," Sartogo said. "That is authenticity." She also announced the latest issue will have covers wrapped in textiles by Loewe. When it comes to Cabana, more is always more.
