Gucci at Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge Estate

I don’t know how I missed the fact that last September, Gucci photographed a campaign in Tony Duquette’s legendary former residence, Dawnridge. Starring the dashing Tom Hiddleston, the malachite and leopard-filled Beverly Hills photo shoot is every maximalist’s dream.

Made of brass, iron, and copper, each of their stunning, handcrafted designs are truly works of art. While I love the modern look of one hanging above a crib in a nursery, in our home, I think I’d hang it in a corner of the living room, bouncing around the sunlight. Shop their full collection here.
