Special Order


Good design knows no boundaries.
--Vicente Wolf

Famed interior designer Vicente Wolf is known for a modern and elegant design sensibility that is guided by integrity and simplicity. He is also a photographer of note, capturing images of his own design work and of his travels. Crossing Boundaries is a fascinating combination of the two, a spirited approach that pairs travel and design based on visits to Ethiopia, Myanmar, Syria, Madagascar, and Borneo.

Wolf is an adventurous voyager, and he is captivated by how people express themselves: in the colors and patterns of clothing, the forms and features of architecture, and so on. These influences are incorporated into his own designs, sometimes directly-a collection of brightly colored woven caps that add personality to a Wyoming log cabin-and sometimes indirectly-a composition of gray-blues and gray-greens drawn from succulent plants in a dry riverbed.
