The Mar Silver Collection
Since 2000, Mar Silver has been the principle designer at her eponymous Connecticut-based firm, creating interiors that are sophisticated and engaging. Silver works in a neutral, refined color palette, with a keen eye for texture and harmony of forms. Her interiors combine modern, contemporary and antique works with great ease and elegance. Highlights from the Mar Silver Collection include contemporary photography from Richard Prince, Vik Muniz and Antoine Schneck, eye-catching mid-century designs by Charlotte Perriand, Poul Kjaerholm and Florence Knoll, paintings by Grace Roselli and Jorge Luis Santos and African and Asian works.
A home should feel like a personal sanctuary that renews your energy and feeds your soul.
Interior Designs by Mar Silver
Eileen Gray was a revolutionary figure in the fields of modern design and architecture. Her body of work and personal style expressed an undisputed individuality. Born to a family of Irish nobility in 1878, she became one of the first women admitted to the Slade School of Art in London where she studied painting before beginning an apprenticeship in a lacquer workshop. She moved to Paris in 1902, where she continued her studies designing lacquered screens and decorative panels, later gaining recognition for work presented at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs in 1913. After briefly fleeing Paris during World War I, Gray was commissioned to decorate Madame Mathieu-Lévy’s apartment. The opportunity allowed her to create a complete interior environment from wall paneling to furniture and décor. In 1922 she opened the renowned Galérie Jean Désert on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and exhibited her opulent chrome, steel tube, and glass furniture collection shortly after.
