B rooklyn plaster artist Stephen Antonson follows in the footsteps of design greats Serge Roche, Diego Giacometti, and John Dickinson, creating lighting, furniture, and accessories that are coveted for their hand-sculpted forms and chalky white finish. Luxury hardware purveyor Nest Studio's new collaboration with Antonson, Pinch, blends the sculptural beauty of plaster with the sturdiness and functionality of brass. Antonson first created prototypes for the collection of six knobs, pulls, and handles in plaster to capture beautiful folds and other details; the designs were then cast in brass. The hardware comes in four finishes including matte white and blackened bronze, and different sizes to accommodate kitchen cabinets, appliances, furniture, and closets. We first wrote about Antonson in 2018 when his lighting and tables were brought to Texas by Lauren Hudson and carried exclusively at her Wells Abbott showroom, and now there's another Texas connection: Nest Studio hardware founder and creative director Jessica Davis is a Dallas native, who now splits her time between Atlanta and NYC.

After 15 years as chief creative officer, Dugan left the company in 2017 and returned to her roots as a painter, where she works out of her airy studio in Sausalito. Her new collection, Serena Dugan Studio, includes textiles, objects, and paintings. Inspired by her insatiable wanderlust and a traveler's curiosity, Dugan has created 13 fabric designs and seven wallpaper designs, each recalling a specific place that inspired her — such as Soledad, Capri, Venetto, and Cassis. Original artwork that influenced her textiles can be purchased through her website, Her Objects collection will be available later this fall, including a painted sling chair from Mexico City, hand- painted leather pillows, and hand- glazed ceramic stools.
