Manhattan brownstone

If it’s true that life imitates art, then this family of six are on the cutting edge!  Inspired by their world-class contemporary art collection, we transformed this 9000 sq. ft. faded glory into a modern masterpiece.

When the walls are filled with De Koonings and Hirsts, the bar is set pretty high.  So we designed new architectural features, such as the staircase and main fireplaces, and had them crafted by stone and metal workers who are artists in their own right.  We chose sculptural furniture–the sinuous living room sofa is a favourite–and painterly finishes to complete the look.

Lived-in and much loved, this house is now a real work of art.
