The Architectural Digest Green Room at the Oscars 2014 by David Rockwell
Last night, the 86th Academy Awards was held in Los Angeles, and every year the Architectural Digest sponsored Green Room welcomes a designer to create an elegant living room setting for the award winners to take a few minutes to compose themselves before hitting the wall of cameras after receiving their Oscar award. This year was the turn of David Rockwell, following in the footsteps of Madeline Stuart, Michael S. Smith and Waldo Fernandez.
In typical style Academy style an oversize Oscar welcomes the stars, walking past a digital art installation which Rockwell collaborated on with actress Susan Sarandon. The film stills, displayed on 86 screens (one for each year of the awards) display current and previous nominated titles.
The design was inspired by city loft spaces, a bit of New York in LA, which touches on Rockwell’s design studio roots in New York. With furniture and accessories from Fort Street Studios, Circa Lighting, Hudson and fabrics by Jim Thompson there are some elements that wouldn’t be too much of a challenge to replicate in your own home.
