Fab Friday with Fisher Weisman
Fisher Weisman. These two have done it all…high end residential interiors, furniture, lighting, and textile designs, licensed product lines, all the while maintaining a reputation for super chic, long-lasting elegance. I love that the three of us share a common philosophy about working with clients – keeping an open mind and resisting the temptation to have an unchanging “style” is the best way to create magic…that’s what I always say! It's no surprise that when it comes to magic, Fisher Weisman's designs are full of it. I mean, just look at some of the photos below. Need I say more? Robin Baron: Welcome! Your work has been described as “drop dead, big city chic.” How would you define your style? Jeffry Weisman: Our work is idiosyncratic, highly personalized and highly custom. We don't have an established look that we repeat for disparate clients: we prefer to develop something individual that complements the clients' taste and lifestyle. That allows us to stretch all the time.
RB: Where do you gain inspiration?JW: For my partner, Andrew Fisher, his prolific painting practice inspires much of his creative interest. For both of us, travel around the world is a constant influence. We love to visit the places people use: the flower markets, the hardware stores, the places where they crafts are made, as much as the museums. RB: How would you describe your own home décor? AF: Distinctive. We blend superb antiques with more rustic pieces, our own upholstery and singular fantasy chandeliers and accent furnishings we create in our studio.
