Flashback Fever: 70’s Fashion Inspires Shine by S.H.O Furnishings

Who has the coolest mom? A 1970’s photo of Shine by S.H.O founder and creative director Susan Hornbeak-Ortiz’s mother, in an ultra-chic pantsuit, was what sparked Eight Track: Volume 1, a collection that Ortiz describes as “vintage glam through today’s lens.” Fashion was clearly a muse for several pieces. The Pompe chair sports faceted nickel legs, like stiletto heels, and a waterfall back, like the train of a gown. Another chair, Raoul, nods to Jean Paul Gaultier, its horizontally channeled upholstery poised on a round base in brushed brass. Her inspiration changed to era-appropriate brutalist architecture for Trystan, a chandelier in perforated, powder-coated iron.
