With my room, I intend to take viewers on a fantastical voyage through the cutting edge of today’s art and design universe.
The room is anchored by a new design by Paul Robinson for the Rug Company called “Lagoon” and is composed of wool and a new silk-like material known as Nulox. Richard Shemtov of Dune created special new pieces debuting at this year’s Kips Bay Show House. His “Moussy” sofa anchors the bay window, while his “Starlight” Center Table is a modern composition in brass and two- way striaed gilt lacquer. A pair of his new “Aramis” Lounge Chairs are covered in a Larsen fabric. A luxurious Holly Hunt Great Plains alpaca wool ombre fabric adorns the windows layered over elegant woven wood shades.
