IN THIS ISSUE

Sometimes it is not only the furniture, fabrics and hues that make a home really stand out. Sometimes it is the unique ele- ments that form the foundation of the space, creating a backdrop for the interior design, that just may stand out the most.

It is our cover story, a home in Delray Beach, Fla., that showcases such details with the pure lines of architect Randall Stofft‘s stacked pillars of quatzite stone placed throughout the 5,200-square-foot space. With columns starting at the exterior and moving indoors to flank the fireplace and kitchen bar, Stofft developed a cohesive look that melds with designer Scott E. Graham’s welcoming interiors, resulting in a contem- porary yet earthy feel.

Quartzite changes to cast coral in a 6,000-square-foot Palm Beach vacation retreat, which covers the fireplace and interior columns. Designed by Eric Rymshaw and Joshua Thibault, the interiors exude 1920s glamour with Art Deco-inspired pieces backed by vaulted colonnades, striped wall coverings, decorative molding and cherry-wood paneling, providing a whimsical background for this light and sunny home.

A little more north, architect Andrew Kirschner expertly turned a 13,000-square-foot home in Winter Park, Fla., into a work of art. By fashioning a stepped window design to frame the living room and placing striking anigre-wood columns throughout the interiors, Kirschner adds sculptural beauty that shapes the warm, modern setting designed by Sam Ewing and Gail Winn.

Through a variety of materials and applications, architects and designers start with a backdrop that will make way for the overall scheme, and the homes inside this issue prove that these elements can be just as artistically pleasing as the finished product.
