A 1901 Beaux Arts limestone townhouse just off Central Park boasts a significant architectural heritage, evident from the stately exterior. With this important cue as a guiding thread, Kelly Wearstler infused a full, gut renovation of the interior with grand gestures and fine detailing in rich materials that echo the building’s history. A modern sensibility thoughtfully lives within via an extremely sophisticated mélange of styles ranging from Chinese art deco to European mid-century masters, and contemporary emerging artists that is both inspired and incredibly welcoming.

A newly designed secret door underneath a staircase landing opens to reveal a walk-in bar, making excellent use of what would otherwise have been negative space. A pair of Sottsass “Demistella” tables act as sentries guarding the entrance; the burnished brass bannister was custom designed for the home.

The master suite entrance area is anchored by a rare marble and gilt Del Diavolo mirror by Ettore Sottsass. The bedroom was deliberately designed using more restful shades, and the master bath is an ode to natural materials in their most glamorous incarnations. Patinated brass divided light doors frame ribbed glass, walls are clad in luminescent glass tiles, and vintage smoked glass sconces, etched with a wave motif, illuminate the space.
