Dan Marty

I have always admired designer Dan Marty’s style.  It has been a while since I have seen any of his work in the shelter publications  I devour on a regular basis though.  A monumental task here OPP is going through the stacks of magazines and playing trash or treasure.  Sometimes I will perform a “great tear out” and file images away by category and other times I just stack and stash.  Anyway,  I was in the middle of a stack and stash this weekend when I ran across the May 2010 edition of House Beautiful – “The Advice Issue” and there was my old friend Dan Marty…

I could always count on him to incorporate the beloved antlers…

since they were allowed on the furniture I knew he had a soft spot for the furry friends…

I think he was influential in moving sackcloth to the forefront in design…

    Marsha, I can’t believe what you wrote about today, since Jan1, instead of losing weight like I need to,I have been shedding magazines. I took my dining room and LR and stacked them in years, I think I had 2000, bought some binders and have been tearing out sorting, recipes,gardens, and house stuff, it has taken me so long and I am still not thru but my goal is Feb I, my children kept telling me ther were taking over!!,I feel your pain too, Timmy doesn’t understand why I can’t just pitch and let go, he says now you have a computer and you can look up but it’s not the same as flipping thru!!!

      We probably have the exact same magazines in our stashes/stacks/folders! I agree with you, there is something about the actual picture that makes me want to hold onto magazines! Good luck!

    I MUST have some Dan Marty DNA in me somehow … this is so “my style” … LOVE LOVE LOVE it all, especially the deconstructed chairs and the black table and armoire … and the rugs sewn together in the big gallery wall room … YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY … and it’s complete with the furry friend on the chair … thanks so so so for sharing this … and yes, TO WHERE HAS HE VANISHED ? … I’m off on another search/adventure due to Y-O-U and I thank you! 🙂
