As the granddaughter of beauty pioneer Este?e, Aerin Lauder has an innate sense for the classics. She chose legendary French decorator Jacques Grange to redesign her Park Avenue apartment over a decade ago, and it remains as timeless and relevant today. Aerin’s burgeoning lifestyle brand, Aerin (available online and at Holt Renfrew) includes entertaining accessories, objets and candles that are infused with Park Avenue glamour and her signature touches of gold. In 2013, Aerin launched lighting, fabric and carpet collaborations, plus a line of furnishings (see her favourite choices in this gallery) and debuted her new book, Beauty at Home. She has a firm grasp on designing homewares that are a reflection of her sophisticated yet unfussy way of life. “I always say that beauty is my heritage; my real passion is home and accessories.”
