Large collections gathered over time create a greater impact when displayed en masse.
Our homes are an extension of ourselves and if they hold large collections they may reflect our personalities in dramatic ways. In his modern Santa Fe adobe, Dallas architect Jim Rimelspach showcases large collections en masse creating visual interest in a dark hued wall niche. Displayed in a sliding door cabinet is his collection of antique Acoma pottery. Their coloring contrasts against the dark interior and clustering gives the collection a greater impact than if it were scattered around the house.
A large collection of Kachina dolls is more meaningful amassed on shelving that wraps the room of this Santa Fe ranch. Soft lighting creates ambiance during the evening hours.
The Santa Fe ranch also shows off David Arment’s personal addiction to Zulu telephone wire art. Artisans cover baskets, bottles and more with colorful plastic-coated copper wire. His large collection is focused on items woven with zigzag designs. The clustered items leave an impression after viewing that spreading would have diminished.
