Designer’s Brief: Joey Segundo

We invite a designer to create a room to best display each of the five artworks we’ve selected. This issue, industry-leading interior designer Greg Natale takes up the challenge.

“Soothing and inviting, this painting makes a serene first impression if placed in an entrance way. The soft, swirling oceanic imagery in Joey Segundo’s Hope reminds me of blue and green sea glass that washes onto the shore. The Janelas Sideboard by Lucas Recchiain in Wild Sea Marble, fused with blue glass, reinforces this sea-glass motif. On this sideboard, I can see my 1977 Crystal Vase in Sapphire as the perfect sea-glass accessory. An entry console needs a key bowl, and the ocean-green of my Rope Bowl in Forresta is a fantastic fit; its shape even fortifies this nautical theme. Finally, I would incorporate this beautiful mouth-blown glass Méne Table Lamp in frosted black by Ross Gardam to create a soft and welcoming glow.”
