Claudio Giannini: The Story of an Argentine Artist
Saturday, May 16, 2015
‘All human beings need to create, it might be bread or it might be art, but for everyone it offers personal fulfillment. And the more generous we are, the greater the return – especially in art. What I paint is the here and now and I hope that everyone can see the social value in my work.’
Many of his newer collage paintings feature images of boats, cars, and planes signifying Giannini's love of traveling and the outdoors. On our recent trip to Buenos Aires, we acquired a number of these collage works as well as acrylic on canvas paintings. We're happy to share them with you now in our showroom gallery, which is on display throughout the summer.
Giannini's artworks can be found on display in more than 30 countries around the world in both private and public collections. These exhibitions include the Alison Gallery in Miami, the Flore Kernec in Paris, the Museo del Parco in Milan, Semana del Arte Vigo in Spain, and Hazel & Sid in Connecticut.

Home Tour: Inside a Connecticut Farmhouse With Vintage Soul
Saturday, October 18, 2014
Settled into a career as the author of her lifestyle site, as well as being an interior stylist and floral designer, Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo and her husband decided to leave the city life. They sold their SoHo loft and purchased a property in the hills of Litchfield, Connecticut, for weekend getaways and rented a small postage stamp-sized apartment in New York City for the workweek.
Amy adapted to country living; she had plenty of space, was able to enojy sunrises and sunsets, and quickly learned to take design cues from Mother Nature. “I was inspired by the colors you see during winter in northwest Connecticut,” she says. “Black, gray, brown, pale blue, and stark white. By the time I added art, rugs, and scatter pillows, the vibe changed a bit, but if you stripped all of my furniture out of here, you’d see only neutrals.”
“I refer to my husband as Mr. Design Within Reach”
Amy, who has been collecting anything vintage since college, styles each room for their purpose. The kitchen has a focus on contrast, the living room is elegant, and the bedroom is dark and gloomy. We Love how Amy styles pieces of different scales and shapes them together, creating unmatched personally in this beautiful Connecticut home.
