CALDWELL, COURTESY OF KERA CAMP (CAMP); HERMÈS (PLATE); RIVER NORTH (LAMP); PATINA (SOFA); B&B ITALIA (ALMORA) Mix Master KERA CAMP'S MIX INTERIOR DESIGN MARRIES ECLECTICISM AND ELEGANCE. BY T.R. WITCHER Las Vegas interior designer Kera Camp was born with the design gene. "I was the weird kid who moved all my family's furniture around," she says. In high school, the parents of Camp's friends hired her to pick paint colors and furniture. The California native came here to study design at The Art Institute of Las Vegas, and she worked as a designer in the hospitality industry before founding her own firm, Mix Interior Design. Mix handles just about everything: from gut rehabs of vintage condos at the Regency to finding just the right finishing touches for a remodeled kitchen or bath. "I like a mix of styles," Camp says in explaining the company's name. "I like mixing old with new." She has also been known to spot cool items that people are prepared to throw away. With their blessing, she takes this "trash" and turns it into sanded, reupholstered, and restained gold. "I'm resourceful that way." 3360 Wynn Road, 702-496-6005; V MINIMAL EFFORT, MAXIMUM EFFECT As clear as the light at noon in Las Vegas, the Nickel Teardrop fl oor lamp ($936) features a large, teardrop-shaped glass shade hanging from a steel base. Sometimes less really is more. River North, Tivoli Village, 702-331-0344; ADULT FLOAT Designed by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates, this 13.5-foot-long "fl oating" sofa ($11,500) is the perfect social centerpiece for your next cocktail party. It's bookended by a pair of Z-shaped parquet end tables. Coast- ers sold separately. Patina, 1300 S. Main St., 702-776-6222; DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS'S LIVING PENTHOUSE features high-end interior furniture and furnishings displayed in a two- fl oor penthouse inside the Soho Lofts—but you can see it only by appointment (702-340-0680). One of its most striking items is the Almora chair, a revolving chair consisting of two conical plastic shells. It's a modern interpretation of the Charles Eames chair, from the British design studio Doshi Levien for B&B Italia ( . "It's very modern; it's very sleek," says Roberto Leyva, director of the Living Penthouse. "It's the type of chair that you look at and you wonder how it was made." Prices start at $10,887; the matching ottoman starts at $2,606. CONE OF SILENCE Inspired by the fine dyeing and weaving techniques of ikat fabric, the new Voyage en Ikat col- lection from Hermès features a complete porcelain dinner ser- vice in saturated, intertwined shades of emerald, ruby, and sapphire. In homage to the journey such designs took along the Silk Road, the collection draws upon eclectic sources—Japanese motifs, Byzantine patterns, even 18th- century French exoticism—and its pieces are trimmed in 24k matte gold for a finish befitting royalty.
