Manhattan Pied A Terre II

Original photo: Stewart O'Shields

I wanted to show you this professional shot of my studio. Here, you can see the aforementioned sunburst and writing table, and the swing arm lamps with white lacquer shades from Hansen, (now Hinson-Hansen). The pillows are an old favorite, "Banana Leaves" in taupe on natural duck from Rose Cumming.

If I were updating this room today, I would add a Louis XV chair, a red taffeta balloon shade on the window, and an interesting chandelier. A Kenneth Noland painting would be nice too ! As it was, I had to tear out an ugly sleeping loft to make the space look like this. Someone had built a tree-house like structure in the apartment before I acquired it.
