Tory Burch's Malibu Regency ikat lounge
Driftwood-base tables, rock crystal lamps, acrylic and brass shelving units, ikat fabric and nail-head upholstered Parsons tables? All this convinced me I had stumbled into a cool new Malibu design shop.
Then I saw the purses, shoes and tunics that have made Tory Burch a fashion sensation. Oops. Was any of this furniture available for sale? I'm afraid the answer was no.
The Malibu Regency look created by Manhattan-based architect Daniel Romualdez reminds me of the late British jet-set designer David Hicks. It could be replicated — if you know a good upholsterer who also does walls.
