I wanted to share some images from an old edition of Elle Decor USA (May 2001) – I’ve been carrying this magazine around with me since I bought it, and has moved from Japan to Australia to Hong Kong with me. This apartment is still one of my favorites to this day. When I first saw the living room it took my breath away. I don’t quite know what it is that I love so much about it, perhaps its the lightness in the room, the beautiful architectural detailing, and the exquisite selection of colours and furniture arrangement. This apartment is in an old Stanford White building in New York, and was designed by the firm Fox-Nahem.
I just adore this living room. The sofa was custom-made, the side chairs are Jean-Michel Frank replica’s and the slipper chairs are Billy Haines.
A Francis Elksins side chair in the living room.
Andre Arbus cabinet in the living room.
Vintage Italian 1950’s wing-back dining chairs in the oak-panelled dining room.
Custom leather sofa and shelving by Fox-Nahem in the library.
Stunningly beautiful kitchen.
Super sexy master bedroom.
