Focus on Design

It’s not hard to find a gay architect or designer. Hell, it’s hard to find one that’s not gay, but finding one that’s also good? Well, look no further than Rawlins Design. Founded in 2000 by Christopher Rawlins, the Manhattan firm focuses on residential interior architecture that somehow comes arcoss as looking “smart” and stylish as well.

We love the “Bibliophiles Residence” as well as the “Bathroom for the Filmmaker,” but it’s the “Essay in Copper, Walnut, and Maple” that really caught our eye. Rawlins works with lots of wood and “woven” copper to create spaces that are modern yet warm.

His website says he’s working on designs for a new loft building. Better get those checkbooks out quick. Good design is hard to find.
