Beautiful Curves | David decided to choose a series of sensuous curved shapes to offset the classic straight lines of the living room fireplace. A pair of 1950s armchairs by the Italian designer Marco Zanuso, covered in a chocolate brown velvet, which came from Bernd Goeckler Antiques in New York, have been placed across from a curved, tufted sofa upholstered in a velvet from Romo. The Muse, a 2008 mixed-media painting by James Kennedy, a young contemporary artist, hangs above the fireplace. A Murano glass knot and a gilded bronze leaf dish, both from Mecox Gardens, and an amber glass vase, from H.B. Home, are arranged on an oval 1940s Hungarian Art Deco cocktail table from Szalon Antiques in Los Angeles. The Tibetan wool-and-silk rug was custom-made by Stark Carpet.
