Architecture Digest, August 1994
Cover Story: Taming a Teepee
Michael Wollaeger, former Executive Editor of Architectural Digest, wrote on April 30, 2014
“Selecting a cover for Architectural Digest was always an interesting challenge. With projects from all over the world in each issue, we had numerous striking images to choose from. In 1994, we had accepted a wonderful story by designer Cassandra Lohr: a fully furnished tepee in the mountains near Aspen. While we were sifting through images for the cover of that issue, one image kept drawing our attention: a twilight shot of the opening of a glowing tepee, the interior warm and inviting against the darkening mountain sky. Taken by David Marlow with Cassandra’s direction, the image stood out in a unique way. A tepee on the cover of Architectural Digest? We thought, Why not try it? When we saw the newsstand reports afterward, we were pleasantly surprised. That issue was one of the best-selling issues of Architectural Digest ever. Perhaps it was the primal sense of shelter and warmth and the romance of the West that connected with readers. Perhaps it was the sheer beauty of the photograph and Cassandra’s design. Most likely it was a combination of all of these factors. In any event, it represented the kind of “lightning in a bottle” that we always sought in our covers, and it remains memorable to this day.”

Her projects have ranged from an 18th century Venetian ballroom, to an elegant 19th century Colorado Victorian, a Central City saloon-themed room, a teepee, a chic, contemporary Cherry Creek townhouse.”
