In a sunny corner of the den, a William Switzer table and two John Boone chairs set the stage for cards or cocktails.
|In the double-height library, Weiner installed the white-oak paneling in a honey-colored stain and filled the room with art deco style. A vintage kidney-shaped desk from Florian Papp Antiques and Art Gallery on Madison Avenue blends seamlessly with a deco-style coffee table from Design 18, a Moderne-inspired wing chair from William Switzer, a Donghia leather ottoman, and a cut-velvet striped sofa by Edward Ferrell. The period chandelier, which originally hung in a theater, is from David Duncan Antiques.
|The fantastical foyer sets the joyous tone for the entire home. Weiner went with modernist circles fashioned of tiny Studium tiles rather the typical black-and-white checkerboard pattern. One of the owner’s many glass art pieces sits atop a Regency table from Evergreen Antiques. The owner also asked for the high oval window so that he could see his prized Dale Chihuly chandelier from his second-floor office.
A beamed and paneled ceiling, rust-red Waverly wall covering, and Sacco’s custom striped rug give the den a warm, cozy feel. Enda Kelly Woodworking created the custom cabinet for the owner’s art glass collection. The Holly Hunt sofa is covered in Calvin/Donghia fabric, and the coffee table is from Majestic Reproductions. Weiner re-upholstered existing John Boone armchairs in a purple Kirk Brummel fabric from Brunschwig & Fils.
The dining room is a visual feast. Weiner covered the walls with a striped fabric and lined the moldings and fireplace with bobble fringe, both from Kravet. A chandelier from Chameleon Fine Lighting presides over a Profiles table, Sirmos chairs, and a William Switzer credenza. Sacco’s custom rug is like art underfoot.
