Peyton Avrett

About Peyton Avrett

Since his youth, Peyton Avrett has grown up in the metal trades. His father, Rick Avrett, is an artisan blacksmith whose work graces nearly every street in historic downtown Charleston, SC. Peyton spent his formative years working with his father producing period correct wrought ironwork. Their work has been recognized with preservation awards by the Charleston Historical Society for its quality and period correct craftsmanship.

Peyton attended Ringling College of Art and Design and during his studies fell in love with furniture design. The skills he learned in college married with the skills he learned working with his father forged the path for his own collection of furniture. His line has grown to incorporate other designers bringing their collections to life through collaboration and a professional relationship that Peyton has grown to really appreciate and thrive on. Peyton’s working relationships with interior designers and architects across the country have produced bespoke pieces that continue to foster that sense of collaboration. His collection of work can be found in homes, restaurants and hotels throughout the country; as well as across the world, from the St. Regis Hotel in Hawaii to the St. Regis Hotel in Dubai.

“Inspiration comes easy when you live and work in a beautiful place like Charleston, SC.”

Barry Dixon

About Barry Dixon

“An interior designer practicing in the Virginia countryside near Washington, DC, Barry Dixon has taken his own brand of warmly hospitable Southern design style to projects around the world. A childhood spent abroad in exotic locales such as India, South Africa & French Polynesia affords his work a singular global perspective. Barry and his work have been featured in multiple magazine pictorials (Southern Accents, Veranda, House Beautiful, Metropolitan Home, Traditional Home) as well as continuous television appearances (Good Morning America and  HGTV).

The integrity of good design is determined simply by what is “appropriate.” Of course, the subjectivity of that word requires that clients align themselves with a designer who shares their vision. To me, “appropriate” involves several levels of consideration. Architecture – what works well with the bones of a space is paramount. Also important is transition, the thread that weaves its way through a home, simultaneously providing unity and flow and allowing diversion and interest. Comfort, even in the most formal areas, is mandatory, as is timelessness, a blessed attribute that straddles fad and period. Quality involves both experience and knowledge. A good reproduction can only be selected with an understanding of the original. Balance and contrast involves many elements: color and texture, heavy and ethereal, old and new. One is as important as the other. Successful design emanates a feeling, not just a look. Nuance is employed to fine tune the whole to the personality of the individual. In the best instances, the effect is a magical aesthetic harmony that is not initially surprising, at least not jolting. Upon inspection or reflection, however, the effect is cleverly unexpected, bridging past with present by bringing the best of history with us into the future.

Justin Giunta

About Justin Giunta

Justin Giunta is an artist that traverses many media. Painting and fashion to interior and industrial design, Giunta brings to his practice an inventive sensibility that sits on the continuum of fine art and commercial design.

Giunta’s start in jewelry design originated through lighting designs that he made upon his arrival to New York in 2001.  The collection included chandeliers and sconces comprised of plastic contractor lights on vibrant yellow extension chord, with each light cage draped in vintage chandelier crystals.  Sourcing the raw materials for the lighting lead to his first jewelry findings and subsequently to the creation of Subversive Jewelry, for which he has received international recognition for being influential to contemporary fashion.

Working with the form of sculptural narrative in jewelry, Giunta’s designs employ vintage materials and historical inspirations to create a narrative quality to each piece.

In lighting this narrative is constructed through the history of light as it is represented through art and design. Each articulated shape of lighting represents some aspect of history and nature, luxury and luminosity, either in the form of inspiration or structural composition.

Giunta’s collaboration with Avrett began in 2008 when introduced over a commissioned project. The collaboration was recently re-ignited and has taken shape through the current selection of lighting:

1. CORTO:  This fan-coral sconce is inspired by the organic forms in nature that follow the rules of the “golden ratio” present in all forms of nature.

2. KINO:  Kino is the protagonist of the John Steinbeck Novel: The Pearl.  A poor native pearl fisherman finds a pearl that proves too large and too valuable to be possessed by any one person.

3. ANUN:  There is something about the way I imagine this piece to sit in the space to be something other worldly, spiritual but not religious.  I image the silhouette of a person standing in front of the light to read much like a Renaissance painting.

4. PIRANI: Shaded chandelier and sconce with chains.  After Giovanni Piranesi, the Renaissance artist who made fantastical architectural panoramas of futuristic cities. I think the gesture and motion present in our fixture is evocative of the movement and spatial relations created by the draping chains that swoop below elongated lampshades which read upward.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Giunta has studied at several art institutions including Pratt Institute and Gerrit Reitveld Academie in Amsterdam. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University and a fellowship from Yale University. Justin lives and works in New York City.
