Case Study | “In most residences, I like to design a dark, atmospheric room,” said David of the study, which is located just off the living room. The burnished gold-tortoise wall covering from F. Schumacher & Co., the custom-made cowhide rug by Kyle Bunting at Holly Hunt, and the Osborne & Little grey chenille-covered sofa, with leather piping in the style of Jean-Michel Frank, lend the room its masculine look. The Bergamo wool draperies are the same color as the walls. In this room, the red accent is provided by the 1960s lacquered goatskin coffee table by Aldo Tura from Duane Antiques in New York. Gypsy Red, a 2011 painting by Tokyo-born artist Kikuo Saito, is a lively addition.
