Seattle's Raging Design Scene

 In just one of the many amazing events happening lately in the exploding design scene that is here in Seattle, Tamara Codor, and her business partner, Sterling Voss, had a super fun party at their new showroom for their beautiful furniture and home accessories line, Codor Designs. I am feeling like Seattle is gaining so much ground lately, I really don't know if I need a trip to Paris, or New York, when Seattle has so much to offer. Don't get me wrong I LOVE those places, but I always thought they had one up on us as far as design, and art, and even food went for years. And now. Well, I don't know... The most insane, fresh, inspired food, brilliant shops, (and people) surfacing all over town...Seriously...We are an entity that cannot be messed with right now...We are nailing it...

With the brilliant local chef and winner of the 2012 James Beard best chef award, Matt Dillon (below) did a spectacular job with the mind blowing food options, and there was amazing drinks being made fresh to order, the party was sophisticated and sublime...

Here in the Northwest, we have a strong masculine vibe going on in many homes with wood, and earthy elements. These pieces would add a perfect lightness and elegance to counterbalance that look. They would take any style of home to another level... 

 The mirrors were their newest endeavor, and they were brilliant. 
They take found objects,(that happen to be amazing), 
mold them with plaster, and make a castle-worthy piece of art.

 This piece...IS MY FAVORITE...Kelly Wearstler are you reading this??? Because if she is, you and I both know she will have this piece in one of her clients homes.

 Trained as a classical painter, and now an interior designer, co-founder Tamara Codor started her career as a studio artist and decorative painter. She sees the composition of one’s surrounding as much like a living painting. Her approach to interior design resonates with the same freedom and creativity as a work of art. Tamara sees every new project as a chance to push the boundaries of form and composition while always retaining a refined elegance.

Now working with Sterling Voss, furniture designer and commercial builder, they experiment with his strong background in creating beautiful traditional finishes out of sustainable and common materials, often revealing beauty in the rough. Together they are committed to furthering an eco ethic in the world of luxury goods and commercial design.While Codor Design carries its signature line of furniture and continues to develop one-off creations and new design accessories, they welcome working with clients to create unique bespoke pieces and encourage you to follow them on DERING HALL to see their latest designs.Codor Design thrives in the spirit of experimentation.
