Fifth-generation Italian manufacturer Lualdi just released its first collection of doors by American designers—namely by Dror Benshetrit, David Rockwell and Robert A.M. Stern. They're on pre-order now, and available for purchase starting in January.
Dror Benshetrit's door, above, has a diagonal fold that reveals the inside of the door frame; at first glance, it looks like the door is slightly ajar. The fold gives the door a two-toned depth that's especially dramatic in the fire-engine red version. "A high-end door is one that is visually flawless, has seamless gaps, and an amazing finish," says Benshetrit.
Robert A.M. Stern created a series of three more traditional doors, with crisply detailed paneling that reinterprets the doors of a classic New York pre-war apartment. My favorite is this bling-y gold-trimmed version, below.
