Our favorite picks from Tory Burch’s Women Makers curation for 1stDibs | Architectural Summary

Tory Burch doesn’t need a boost like Women’s History Month to support and elevate female talent. Over the years, she has showcased the works of female artists and designers, both vintage and contemporary, in numerous personal and professional projects. Having yet another reason to support women, however, certainly doesn’t hurt. This month, Tory Burch has teamed up with 1stDibs to launch a curated selection of pieces by artists and designers. Works by luminaries such as Gabriella Crespi, Helen Frankenthaler and Charlotte Perriand make up the mix of over 70 pieces, as do works by more discoverable talent.

“We strive every day to empower women, but March is a wonderful opportunity to amplify their contributions, Burch says. Through this partnership, 1stDibs will also support the Tory Burch Foundation, which provides women entrepreneurs with access to capital, education and digital resources.

In addition to the work to which the foundation contributes (including awarding more than 4,800 women business owners with more than $75 million in grants and loans in partnership with the Bank of America Capital program), the choices of Burch’s personal designs take into account the creative pursuits of women. In the 1929 fashion mogul’s Georgian estate in Southampton, for example, the master bedroom pays homage to American design legend Bunny Mellon, with a dreamy assemblage of Colefax and Fowler chintzes, framed botanical prints and marble topiary. pot.

Even more recently, Tory Burch’s Mercer Street store in Soho opened with a number of supporting items from female artists and designers. For starters, the brand has partnered with the International Center of Photography to promote the works of four female photographers, whose works are displayed in a frame at the store’s entrance. Burch also commissioned a ceramic chandelier from artist Francesca DiMattio, who hand-painted the fixture’s delicate floral designs on site. And in the backyard, AD100 landscaper Miranda Brooks has designed an idyllic urban garden. “This is probably the most personal store I’ve ever designed with a team of amazing people,” Burch shared in a video tour with AD from space.

Whether it’s his personal getaway in the Hamptons or public storefronts, Burch (with the help of designer Daniel Romualdez) creates welcoming interiors brimming with collected objects with stories to tell. Much like a number of pieces decorating its spaces, the practice is one that has been inherited. Growing up in a 250-year-old home in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, Burch was surrounded by found objects. “My parents were the ultimate collectors,” she told AD PRO in 2019. “They always brought things back from the places they went: antiques, pottery and china.”
