The Surf Lodge in New York
Sometimes the best interior design is not in houses, but in hotels.
"Hotelier André Balazs started something that other people are building upon all the time: a cheery, patinaed, eccentric modernism," enthuses Los Angeles interior designer and baby-furniture guru, David Netto. "I think this place is a work of genius, my wife goes there all the time, and whoever designed the website is as good as whoever put that globe on the center table. The Surf Lodge rules."
