JAY JEFFERS x ELEGANT ADDITIONS RAY BOOTH FOR HICKORY CHAIR S an Francisco designer Jay Jeffers has created luxurious and sculptural interiors around the country, from Napa Valley and the Bay Area to Florida, Colorado, and New York. But Texas claims the Elle Decor A-list designer as our own. Not only does he have projects in Texas, but Jeffers grew up in Dallas and attended UT at Austin. He has authored two books, including Be Bold: Bespoke Modern Interiors (Gibbs Smith Publisher), which corrals his newest projects. A master of detail, he espouses sculptural forms, exquisite materials, and bold pattern and color to craft standout spaces. His new door- hardware collaboration with Access by Accurate was inspired by his everyday encounters with great design, with eight silhouettes for knobs and levers in bronze, brass, nickel, and two-tone versions. The collection is exclusively in Houston at Elegant Additions. Meet Jay Jeffers Monday, March 23, 5:30 pm, at Elegant Additions, as part of Texas Design Week Houston, for cocktails and book signing.
