For a city girl, Andrianna Shamaris is a bit of a beach bum. Every few months she jets to Bali to supervise the production of resin accented teak tables, shagreen accessories, and other pieces for her SoHo and Malibu shops.
Andrianna Shamaris, who owns home furnishings stores in Malibu, Calif., and SoHo in Manhattan, travels regularly to Indonesia to scavenge for raw materials like tamarind wood, bamboo and antique fabrics.
Ms. Shamaris, who lived in Indonesia for more than a year after leaving London, her childhood home, imports furniture and clothing -- including items of her own design -- from Bali, Sumatra and Madura.
Andrianna Shamaris, a furniture, clothing and accessories designer, knows how to mix things up. She brings together fashion and home furnishings, rough and refined, in a new shop in SoHo that bears her name.
There's something about London-born designer Andrianna Shamaris' sumptuous new boutique that feels rather familiar. Perhaps it's because she's been creating her Balinese-inspired furniture and accessories for more than 20 years and has spawned a passel of copycats.
