My Favorite Things: Ernest de la Torre


I do hope that you all have enjoyed reading the favorite things holiday series as much as I have enjoyed posting each and every one. Last, but by no means least, is the brilliant Ernest de la Torre. Ernest was one of the first designers that I interviewed for Decorati and has become a fast favorite. What I appreciate most is his instinctive eye for architecture and design, and the subtle influences of David Adler and Mies van der Rohe in his work. Ernest has also designed a full range of unique custom furniture with textiles soon to follow.
