Meyer Davis Studio Founders Launch William Gray Furniture Line
Meyer Davis Studio is well known for the relaxed luxury the firm has brought to such hospitality projects as 1 Hotel South Beach and New York’s Vaucluse restaurant. Now, founders Will Meyer and Gray Davis showcase that same aesthetic in William Gray, their inaugural line of furniture, lighting, and bath products. “High-end hotels require strict standards in form, function, and comfort, and, likewise, most private clients desire the same,” Davis explains. “This assortment emerged from our vast archive of custom designs from two decades of work,” Meyer adds. There’s Teddy, a contemporary take on the wingback manufactured by partner Stellar Works that can be upholstered in myriad fabrics and leathers, such as Opuzen’s nubby sheepskin. The mid century–inflected Varick sofa features tailored wood or leather arms flanking cushions covered in Maharam copper velvet. Inspiring wanderlust, Hugo updates campaign furniture with a leather seat and an oak or walnut frame, and pairs well with Eclipse, a cocktail or side table topped in marble from Spain (black Nero Marquina) or Greece (white Volakas).
