ABOUT US

Vyna St Phard is a New York-based interior designer who draws her inspiration from culture, fashion, art, travel and nature. Her aesthetic style is greatly influenced by the Art Deco style and the Bauhaus movement. Vyna studied at The Parsons School of Design in 2002, and founded her design company in 2007, after working in the interior design field for a number of years. Her design philosophy lies in the belief that interiors should be more about liberty and harmony, because in the end, what counts the most is the individual person living inside their individual space. The way her clients interact and express their personalities inside the interiors, which were created with them in mind. Vyna is a supportive IIDA Member, she participated in the 2013 Spring Show NYC Salon: Insights with Visionaries in the Fields of Art & Design, while offering a designer's perspectives on fine and decorative arts. She is a frequent guest of Professor Jeff McLean from NYU, as she discusses the impact of Social Media and the Luxury Market in the 21st Century. Vyna was a participating interior designer during the inaugural of 1stDibs NYC20th Century Art + Design Fair, benefiting the Bard Graduate Institute in 2012.

Robert Doisneau - Sweet Paris

The iconic photographer and his Leica camera captured the life and people of Paris in the 1950s. 

This is the Paris we all wished we were part of.



Art Deco

One of the clearest hallmark of Art Deco is its geometry, which was largely derived from cubism. Everything from flowers to the human form became angular.

The Weekender: The Star Treatment 
The decor is all about precious cherry wood, a mix of natural materials, smooth dark stones and symbolic vine sculptures. 


The Weekender: Place Des Vosges, Paris
This specific charming square is right in the heart of the Marais. Place des vosges is a large quadrangle surrounded by 39 houses built on a uniform plan with brick, stone, and stucco facades. Arcade ground floors and simple dormers.

EVENTS

Jack Lenor Larsen received lifetime achievement award, and Thomas Woltz, the Thomas N. Armstrong III Award for Landscape Design
High End Weekly™ coverage on Jack Lenor Larsen and Thomas Woltz’ award ceremony at The Metropolitan Club, New York, Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

Last night, The New York School of Interior Design honored textile pioneer Jack Lenor Larsen with a Lifetime Achievement Award and noted landscape designer Thomas Woltz with the school’s first Thomas N. Armstrong III Award in Landscape Design at its 2nd annual Spring Benefit, held at The Metropolitan Club, in New York. While receiving his award, Mr Larsen humorlessly pointed out how delighted he was to be in a room which made him looked younger. Lou Gropp, long-time editor of House Beautiful Magazine and former NYSID trustee, presented Jack Lenor Larsen with the Lifetime Achievement Award. In memory of his father, Whitney Armstrong honored landscape architect Thomas Woltz with the first Thomas N. Armstrong III Award in Landscape Design. In September 2012, the school will continue their celebration of Larsen's professional achievements with a major retrospective filling their 69th Street Gallery.

High End Weekly™1st Year Anniversary Event
It gives me great pleasure to share this celebration with all of my old and new friends, our sponsors: Holly at Subarashi Kudamono for the delicious cocktails, Dolores Marianeschi for the Nieto wine, Erik and Cornelia for allowing me to use their beautiful, zen-like gallery. NTDTV for their great coverage, and last but not least, my better half, Michael. During High End Weekly’s first year, I have had so many stories and experiences to tell, so when I look back, there have been a few tears and laughs, a little of expert advice, and friendly conversations. To read more go to: http://www.highendweekly.com/2012/06/here-we-go.html
