As I See It: Where Art Meets Design – An Intimate Look Inside Hunt Slonem’s Legendary Residences


The marriage of art and design is the subject of painter Hunt Slonem’s amazing new book, which was just released and offers a bird’s eye view of the artist’s fantastically decorated and meticulously restored homes, including two Southern plantations.

Slonem pairs vintage furniture and found objects with contemporary art, including works by Alex Katz and Andy Warhol, creating spectacular spaces that artist and critic Bruce Helander will explore, along with a pictorial tour of Slonem’s breathtaking 35,000 sq. ft. private studio in Brooklyn, New York.
