Lauren Lozano Ziol, co-founder of Chicago-based interior design firm SKIN, has been a leading voice in interiors for over 25 years. Describing the firm’s signature style as “Timeless, classic, chic – with an edge,” the duo are known for sourcing vintage furniture and pairing iconic, historic pieces with eclectic, contemporary wallpapers, rugs and artworks – making them an irresistible choice for curating a collection for The Bruno Effect.
This ability to mix eras and styles with perfection is evident in the exquisite pieces they have chosen here. A stunning pair of 21st-century Hans Kögl Palm Tree floor lamps (“I love the fun Palm Beach vibe that is over-the-top chic”) stands next to an 1870 Swedish Bury Walnut chest, about which Lozano Ziol says: “There is nothing better than the elegance of bookmatching a wood grain – there is a story to tell in each movement.” A 1960 Oscar Torlasco chandelier is “modern and old-world, with sensuous lines – a real feature.” And of note is the Art deco dining table. “We love how the bygone era of Deco never dies,” says Lozano Ziol. “Deco goes with any style – modern or classical.”
