Working in tandem with the architecture firm Stamberg Aferiat, we designed this turn-of-the-century town house in Greenwich Village to accommodate an important collection of contemporary paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Set against crisp white walls and minimalist architectural details, the artworks, in all their polychromatic glory, take center stage. Classic twentieth-century furnishings and bespoke contemporary pieces are deployed sparingly to avoid extraneous clutter that might distract from the experience of the art. In the living room, a shapely Vladimir Kagan sofa, cocktail tables by Janette Laverrière, and a pair of curvaceous midcentury Italian lounge chairs are set on a classic parquet floor laid in a herringbone pattern. The home office is anchored by a Charlotte Perriand desk with a Pierre Paulin chair, whilea powder room enrobed in white-lacquered walls gathers strength from just two sculptural elements—a vintage Fontana Arte mirror and a custom sink of Breccia marble in complementary peachy-red hues. To give the primary bedroom its own sense of place and tranquility, the walls are sheathed in a pale blue Venetian plaster that echoes the coloration of the Fortuny velvet that covers the custom gridded headboard and a Gio Ponti loveseat. Despite the shift from white gallery walls, the bedroom’s singular palette maintains the overall mood of tailored restraint.
