We all know that I love tufting and brass, shiny stuff, art, modern design, and all things luxurious from the mid-twentieth century. So, naturally, I had to post this townhouse upon seeing its living room and the vintage Paul Evans sofas within. Yum-o! I find the dining room's Knoll side chairs equally scrumptious (velvet, of course) and the marbled master bath, in a word,... awesome. Transformed from empty shell to airy living space by Selldorf Architects and decorated by D’Apostrophe, this Manhattan home is one for the Sukio archives.
"What could be lovelier than a classic 19th-century Manhattan townhouse? So elegant, so commodious—no wonder it’s the dream of countless space-starved New Yorkers," writes Mayer Rus of Architectural Digest. I wholeheartedly agree. Except, it's the dream of this space-starved Washingtonian as well!
