Editor’s Miscellany: Miles to Go

By Kyle Hoepner

Thoroughly colorful (in so many senses of the word) interior designer Miles Redd will be in Connecticut next Wednesday evening to introduce his brand-new venture in the publishing world, The Big Book of Chic, just out this month from Assouline.

You can catch him from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on October 17 at The Antique & Artisan Center in Stamford—not to mention pick up a signed copy of the Big Book for yourself—but only if you RSVP today: see the link at the bottom of this post. [Note: RSVP deadline has been extended until Monday, October 15.]


A man who seems always to be moving at light speed, Miles was kind enough to spare me thirty seconds for a mini-interview about his lavishly produced (what else?) tome: Q: What is your favorite photo or project shown in the book? A: That is a hard one. They are all special to me—that is why they are in the book. I do love the cover photo of the zebra door (once you take the dust jacket off) and, on the back of the jacket, the picture of the French chair.


Q: Will your readers learn anything about Miles Redd that may surprise them? A: I hope so…I try not to take myself too seriously.


Q: What is the main point you would like your book’s readers to take to heart? A: I hope it leaves them inspired.
