Brian Atwood’s Milan Apartment
Brian Atwood took inspiration from the runways and used tactile materials and accents when decorating his Milan apartment. The Milo Baughman armchair is upholstered in the same suede Atwood uses in his shoe and handbag designs, while the chenille sofa is topped with a fur throw and fringed pillows.
Adam Lippes’s Vintage Dining Room
The dining room of sportswear designer Adam Lippes’s New York City apartment showcases pieces from the designer’s collection of vintage furnishings, like a 1930s FontanaArte table, Joseph Hoffman chairs, and Thonet benches. Tord Boontje’s Blossom chandelier and a hand-painted silk wall covering by Fromental add softness and sparkle.
Ralph Lauren’s Dining Room
Ralph Lauren’s Manhattan dining room epitomises the fashion designer’s restrained yet sophisticated aesthetic. Vintage light fixtures create a focal point above the sleek dining table and leather-upholstered chairs by Ralph Lauren Home, while a custom-made zebra-skin mirror by Richomme lends an exotic touch.
Peter Som’s Eclectic Apartment
Peter Som shied away from sticking to a singular look when decorating his apartment in New York City’s West Village, opting to use items he loved, regardless of period and style. The chic mix included vintage Osvaldo Barsani dining chairs, a Saarinen table, a midcentury armchair from Housing Works thrift shop covered in Cowtan & Tout’s Ocelot cotton, and a photograph by Nan Golden.
Mark Badgley and James Mischka’s Kitchen
For Mark Badgley and James Mischka, getting away from it all does not mean leaving sophistication behind. The kitchen in their 1920s stone house in Lexington, Kentucky, was renovated using classic elements to recall a servant’s kitchen in Newport mansion. The subway tiles are by Urban Archaeology, the range is by La Cornue, the pendant lights are by Rejuvenation, and the Rohl sinks have fittings by Newport Brass.
Nanette Leopre’s Townhouse
Nanette Leopre called on Jonathan Adler to help make her Manhattan townhouses as whimsical as her fashion designs. In the sitting area of the master bedroom, vintage sconces, a mirrored cocktail table, and a silver chair and ottoman add a dose of Hollywood glamour, while curtains of an aqua linen by Clarence House and an antique love seat upholstered in a lime-green Scalamandre silk keep the mood lively.
Anna Sui’s Study
Anna Sui turned a second apartment in her Greenwich Village building into a retreat, writing space, and extra closet. The designer’s eclectic style is reflected in the study, where Sui’s collections of paper-mache busts and rock-and-roll photography are displayed. The furniture is painted black and upholstered in a pattern from one of Sui’s collections, and the walls are covered in antiqued mirror and a chinoiserie paper by Stark.
Reed Krakoff’s Bedroom
As president and creative director of Coach and designer of his eponymous line, Reed Krakoff is surrounded by luxury day in and day out. The master bedroom of his Southampton, New York, home is no exception. Designed by his wife, Delphine, the room mixes glamorous materials – silver fox fur and snakeskin – with pieces by 20th-century masters. The mirrors are vintage John Dickinson, the Samuel Marx cabinets are from Liz O’Brien, and the Lucite-and-steel lamps are by Karl Springer.
