Letter from the Publisher


PASSION + HARD WORK = SUCCESS


As I read about the manufacturers, showrooms and designers featured in this


issue, I was amazed by how long these home-grown companies have been a part of this business: 20, 30, 40, 50 plus years. Although each company has its own unique and compelling story, each began with a common theme — someone had the courage to pursue a personal passion — and still exists because it continues to build on the successes of those humble beginnings. Beginning on page 18 you can meet several makers of exquisite products who


have enjoyed longevity and success. Thirty-something Wired is now a bi-coastal creator of phenomenal lighting fixtures with showrooms in Los Angeles, New York and South Florida. Arthur and Teddy Edelman began a fascinating journey in the leather industry in the mid-1950s that ultimately led them to Andy Warhol and an unparalleled prominence within the interior design industry. Our good friend and neighbor, Jaime Perzcek, has been creating custom furniture from exotic materials as long as we’ve been publishing source books for designers — more than 20 years! And the Texas-based furniture company that began in Carl Kisabeth’s garage more than 50 years ago, is still going strong as a family run, made-to-order operation today. After 20 years of sourcing and designing, Cory Pope’s high profile interior de-


sign firm has expanded and he shares his top product picks from his 6,000-square- foot Dallas-based showroom. We also take you to the La Cienega Design Quarter in Los Angeles to meet Peter Grisdela and Gerry Bross of 20-year-old Hollywood Sierra Kitchens, and Barbara Pearlman shares some of her favorites from both her modern and traditional collections as her Design Atelier showroom nears its 30th anniversary in Chicago’s storied Merchandise Mart. Our cover story, beginning on page 78, takes you into the Design Center of


the Americas’ first (yet spectacular) design show house in its 27 year history. Be sure to savor our Inside Stories featuring a yacht, a jet, a spa and the set from a television series along with our Great Finds selections, industry columns and design center event pages. If you are new to this industry or have been challenged recently by current


economic conditions, remember that all of the above success stories began hum- bly by people with a simple passion — a desire to create and offer their best. Hard work and perseverance never go out of style and is often richly rewarded. Discover what you are passionate about and pursue it with everything you have; if you do, you will soon find that opportunities for success are still all around us.
