Printed, bound and for the first time wrapped in silk, (actual silk, this magazine is insane!) Cabana Magazine N20 marks a series of firsts, unveiling untold stories from our global team of contributors and collaborators. With six never-before-seen homes in New York, Milan, Belgium and Paris, two major travel portfolios in Malta and Gujarat, and the much-anticipated refurbishment of one of England’s most exalted addresses, this issue is full of first-look exclusives, which we are honored to share.
Design icon, Roberto Peregalli, trusted Cabana to reveal a deeply personal space in Milan. Elsewhere in the city, textile designer Idarica Gazzoni invited Cabana to reveal her spectacular new home, an elegant palace of pattern and texture. Remy Renzullo’s refurbishment of the private wing of Castle Howard, one of England’s greatest estates, famously the setting for the film, Brideshead Revisited, dazzles in photographs by Derry Moore. In New York, nonagenarian artist, Barbara Jakobson opened her red lacquered doors for the first time, revealing a life truly well lived and collected. In Belgium, fashion designer Edward Vermuelen’s striking house shows the impact of light, scale and restraint. Meanwhile, in Paris, the antique-filled apartment of Sotheby’s chairman, Mario Tavella, is a rare treat in every way. In Malta, through the eyes of Miguel Flores-Vianna, designer Suzanne Sharp revisits her childhood and explores the complexities of Maltese identity and history, finding the country’s resilience and charm alive and well in its ancient streets and behind closed doors.
