A Hudson Furniture light fixture presides over the double-height entry.
In the great room, a Gregorius Pineo ceiling light hangs above a Formations cocktail table, Christian Liaigre stools, and sofas custom-designed by Behnke in a Great Plains silk, with cushions in a Loro Piana linen; the curtains are in a Loro Piana cashmere-wool, the sconces are by Herve Van der Straeten from Ralph Pucci International, and the carpet is by Tai Ping.

A chandelier and sconce by Dennis & Leen grace the dining room; the curtains are made of a fabric by Marcie Bronkar, and a Kerry Joyce linen covers the chairs by Behnke, who also designed the table.
