Chic at Work: Reed Krakoff

I've always been obsessed with workspaces which is why it's the topic of my book.  One person I wish I had been able to feature is Reed Krakoff. His office for his eponymous company is beyond chic.  He had a little help from his wife Delphine who is an interior designer but we all know he has a great eye as a designer and collector.  Maybe if I cross my fingers, he'll say yes for the next book. 

UPDATE: There were more photos in this post but I was asked by Conde Nast to take them and any others I've posted from Architectural Digest and Vogue off of my blog.  Going forward, I will no long be buying or promoting either of their magazines.

I wonder why the reason for deleting the images was, any clue?
In any case I love this image that reflects creativity, order, passion for his work.

I'm so excited! I purchased my book from Barnes & Nobles today! I too am so fascinated with work spaces, love them.

That sounds weird..why would they do that?

What is up with these magazines?!

Emily Bourassa said...

What a bunch of dummies those magazines are.
I'm convinced the only people who even care about magazines are blog readers who want to see them stay in business and when we are reminded of their great editorial spreads it makes us more apt to purchase them!

@Emily Bourassa, so true! I almost never buy these magazines but purposely bought AD and Vogue a few months ago to read on the plane as a result of postings on this very blog. I never would have thought twice about these mags and would have read a book or free content on my iPad instead, but sought out these mags only because this blog made me think of them. Conde Nast needs to get with the times.

Could not agree more - it is stylish blogs like Heather's that alert readers like us to this content to which we then go onto their www or buy their magazine. With print circulations declining CN need to re-think their copyright terms and embrace the additional website traffic and/or print audience that these influential blogs can bring them. Very short-sighted indeed!

UNBELIEVABLE! It's nice to see that in these times of print decline that these two publications have all of the readership and exposure that they need ( or want). One would expect their response would have been "Thank You". Heather, you don't need them.

I agree Heather, you don't need them. You are talented and creative. You can create your own inspiring posts. But that was really something from Conde Nast.

Alie said...

That is horrible and unbelievable. Like many others I have been inspired to seek out these magazines by your posts. How incredibly disappointing of them. And incredibly dispiriting for us.

I agree, this is so short-sighted of Conde Nast. I bought my first copy of Vogue in about ten years thanks to a post in your blog (I believe it was featuring a Tory Burch house). A well-run blog like yours is essentially a free ad for their content. They should be embracing you.

I was shocked to read your post. You've been nothing but effusive in your praise of the magazines, and you always highlight the photographer, the designer, giving as much credit as you can. As others pointed out, it's blogs like yours that alert many first time readers to the magazines in the first place. What a shame.

Unknown said...

I do not understand this and agree with other comments that blogging drives sales for Conde Nast. Short-sighted is definitely the word...

Dianne said...

Well done for not promoting them anymore. It is a mystery to me why so many companies want to shoot themselves in the foot like this. You have a great blog, you are always positive and anyone or any company would only benefit from being on this blog. Well, I much prefer reading your blog than their magazines frankly.

Looking at images from Vogue and Architectural Digest makes we want to buy their magazines and pull out past issues to look at the full story. I can never understand the reasoning behind this. It actually drives traffic to their site too. Crazy

Its such a shame for CN to be very parochial and extremely protectionist. Nevertheless, you are truly inspiring and truly chic, which warms the heart.
