Judith Lance first approached me to design a website for her interior design firm in 2008. Due to extraordinary and unforeseen circumstances the project was delayed, but not forgotten. Earlier this year we reconvened to get the job done and at last the results have come to fruition.
I could try to explain the nature of Judith’s remarkable work but it would be with great difficulty and ultimately would only confuse. So, borrowing from Judith’s own bio, I’ll offer this instead:
“Whether designing interior detailing and furnishings or working with dealers and auction houses to find the exceptional, Judith immerses herself in a process of rigorous editing to arrive at a balance reflecting both the sublime and practical. Custom furnishings and decorative objects are frequently commissioned through a creative relationship she shares with artisans worldwide. There is very little that has not already been designed or conceived of in one manner or another. The collective aesthetic evolves and shifts primarily in response to newly developed materials and technology, as well as, not unlike fashion, the need to cull gestures and philosophies from previous periods. There exists a vast repertoire of design references and the challenge and joy for me is in reinterpreting the details into a composition that both inspires and brings one a sense of well being.”
I would like very much to live (or maybe just sip some coffee for 15 minutes?) in a space that Judith Lance has designed.
