I was happy to receive these images yesterday of the room designed by Robert Stilin for this year’s 2017 Kips Bay Decorator’s Show house. The room was inspired by a contemporary European salon where luxury and comfort coexist. The selection of collectible furniture and respectful art collection are set against a backdrop of dry and subtle marmorino plaster walls. Details such as of Cashmere from by Loro Piana, alpaca fabrics and layered carpets lend a luxe tone to the functional and relaxing room. Robert describes his vision as ” For this room I created a space that showcases the type of work we do for our private clients in the city, a space for a New Yorker who is well traveled, sophisticated, interested in arts and politics and who has amassed agreat collection of art, furniture and objects. we see the homeowner using this space to relax with a book, or to entertain friends and family.” Sounds like the perfect combination.
