Dewy Nicks, Photographer

When a friend showed Dewey Nicks some custom pieces by Roy McMakin, who designed the office furnishings for the Getty Center, Nicks snapped them up. The colors were irresistible and the scale big, just what the photographer wanted. “It’s easier to find smaller pieces,” he says. His purchases include a dining room table, pictured right, a wing chair and a fainting couch, both upholstered in mohair, as well as lacquered bookcases. All but the table are sitting in his storage facility. “I want to have them for the next time around,” says Nicks, who intends his next house to be “less minimalist and more homey. I don’t want it to feel like an airport waiting room.” On the other hand, he aims to stay far away from Shabby Chic. “To me, that’s the enemy.”
