July 19, 2011 / Photo Shoots
Mr and Mrs Novogratz
To get to know the Novogratzes, you must first take a tour of their house. I was lucky enough to photograph the beautiful, eclectic family, helmed by Cortney and Rob from Sixx Design, last year and stayed with them in their five-story house in NYC last Spring. Like a modern museum, mixed with the whimsy of the occasional street feel and traditional piece, the house is a fashion-forward amalgamation of colors, art, personalities and the warmth of a loving family. In this photograph, Cortney and Rob sit on a Adid Aziz desk – the other is residing in the famed MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City – which they hauled into their master bedroom with a crane before installing the windows. To witness the creative brilliance of the couple and how they manage their 7 kids, watch Home by Novogratz on Saturdays at 10/9 (c), which premiered on July 16 on HGTV. Also, stay tuned for images from my full shoot with the family this summer.
I remember when I went to their house and saw that chair/couch. It was huge! Me and Bellamy both could lay down on it!
Glad the Novogratzes are back on TV. I was a huge fan of 9 by Design, and am liking the new show as well. (One revision about the desk shown above, it is by Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid, not Adid Aziz)

Ahh fantastic. I’m a big fan of their show both on Bravo and HGTV. I remember the episode when they bought the shark chair. That’s so great you got to shoot them in their home. Great shot.
[…] Sometimes extravagant interior ideas require more than ‘thinking’ outside the box – in this case ‘entry’ from outside the box was necessary. This item was actually brought into the ‘box’, the home, with a crane during construction before the windows went up. It is the unrestrained Adid Aziz Desk in the home and master bedroom of none other than the Novogratz family. The husband and wife design duo are known for their modern eclectic taste, so given the context, it is not surprising to see this desk in their home. Also a nice reminder of how striking statement pieces play such an important role in self expression in interior spaces. via: Catherine Hall. […]
