THR's Design Hollywood Showhouse at The Century will be open until Sunday, Nov. 18.
This weekend marks the last chance to visit The Hollywood Reporter's first annual Design Hollywood at The Century.
Open to the public since Oct. 26, the showhouse displays 14 rooms specially created by Hollywood's top interior designers. The showhouse — which offers sweeping views from downtown to the Pacific from two luxury residences on the 20th floor -- is open tomorrow, Friday, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $40, available for purchase at THR.com/designhollywood with sales benefiting the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.
The rooms include:
A stunning lacquered vestibule by renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects, builder of the The Century.
The inviting great room by David Phoenix (whose clients include Rob Lowe and Maria Shriver) that perfectly marries luxurious furnishings with casual California living. Says Phoenix: "I really enjoyed being a part of the first THR showcase house and home edition. The Century provided the canvas for me to use my creativity."
A dark, sexy bedroom with a built-in walnut platform bed and bookcases by Marmol Radziner (Demi Moore, Tom Ford).
Tim Clarke's glittering, gold dining room inspired by Blake Lively. His clients include Mark Gordon and Guy Oseary.
Master bedrooms by Trip Haenisch (Courteney Cox, Aaron Sorkin), who is a master at mixing furnishings with contemporary art, and Joan Behnke (Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady), who created a beautiful mix of luxe living and organic pieces. Says Haenisch: "I got so many comments that people could really see themselves living in the space I created."
A perfectly composed living room with a drop-dead original Royere sofa and chair from Spago and Soho House West Hollywood designer Waldo Fernandez (Darren Star is a client).
The inspiring artist's study in dark paneled wood by Nickey Kehoe's Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe.
A chill-out study, perfect for relaxing and listening to music, by Jane Hallworth (Michelle Williams, Kirsten Dunst).
The breakfast room and kitchen done in her inimitable boho chic by Kathryn M. Ireland, one of the stars of Million Dollars Decorators, which just returned for season two. Says Ireland: "We've had a great deal of positive feedback from the showhouse. It's a great opportunity for people to see first-hand the work of some of Hollywood's top designers. It's a real sneak peek into the lifestyles of the rich and famous in fabulous high-rise living"
And a passage furnished with perfectly edited, one-of-a-kind pieces by Cliff Fong, the designer of Ryan Murphy's Beverly Hills house, which appeared on the cover of THR's first design issue, which came out Oct. 24.
Three emerging stars Oliver M. Furth, Natasha Baradaran and Adam Bram Straus did wonders with two powder room and the second vestibule.
The showhouse was produced with top real-estate developer Related Companies (which built The Century). "We’re known for our commitment to inspired architecture and design,” says Alicia Goldstein, senior vp at Related (which also built New York City’s Time Warner Center). "L.A. is exploding culturally, and for us this is like an exclusive museum exhibit, a way to showcase the best design in Los Angeles."
THR celebrated the opening of its Design Hollywood at the Century on Oct. 24 hosted by Janice Min, THR editorial director, and Wallis Annenberg, president of The Annenberg Foundation.
Already spotted at the showhouse have been Murphy, designer Alexandra Von Furstenberg, top entertainment lawyers John Branca and Alan Hergott, entertainment agent Michael Kives, WME Entertainment's Christian Muirhead and producer Eric D'Arbeloff.
