    Henry Bourne: Design For Life

    For the March issue of British Vogue, Henry Bourne goes inside the home of design luminary Marc Newson and style maker Charlotte Stockdale. The married couple resides in Howick Place, a former Royal Mail sorting office. The flat boasts 120,000sq ft, 16ft ceilings, and windows nearing 10ft. The expansive space houses many of Marc Newson's design objects. The grey marble Lathed Table lives in the kitchen, Marc's chartreuse bottle for Dom P'erignon rests on top of the Low Voronoi shelf, and the couple and their children eat with the tableware that Marc designed for Qantas airways.

    The house is very clearly under Marc's influence, and Charlotte is more than happy to oblige. While their personal styles may diverge (Charlotte's previous home was feminine, pretty, and full of family mementos), both agreed to avoid the stark, loft-like, gallery-inspired look at all costs. Marc turned to Swiss chalets for inspiration, noting that they retain their warmness no matter the size.

    Marc Newson is a designer known for his futuristic take on objects. Among his many commissions, he has designed sneakers for Nike, a concept car for Ford, luggage for Samsonite, the interior for Lever House restaurant in New York, and the list goes on. Charlotte Stockdale is contributing fashion editor of Vogue UK and has consulted and styled for fashion companies such as Paul Smith, Dolce & Gabbana, Chloe, and Versace.

    The March 2010 issue of British Vogue with covergirl Alexa Chung is available on newsstands now. Be sure to check out the "Design for Life" feature by Henry Bourne!
