In this Rhode Island dining room, designer Juniper Tedhams found a pair of 1920s Swedish chairs in their original gray horsehair and had four copies made, covering one pair in Palma leather from Jasper and the other in Christopher Hyland's blue Paso horsehair. Vintage Beni Ourain rug from F. J. Hakimian.
The star of the kitchen is the Moroccan encaustic tile from Amethyst Artisan. The custom barstools were inspired by Swiss architect Pierre Jeanneret. Easton faucet by Waterworks. Wolf range.
The seat cushion on the custom banquette in the kitchen is made of Noriker horsehair from Christopher Hyland. It suits the banquette's antique feel. Jean Prouvé Standard chairs from Vitra add a modern contrast.
Butler's pantry cabinets with original glass doors are painted in Farrow & Ball's Estate Emulsion in Shaded White, a color Tedhams used for the entire first floor because "it has the incredible ability to be about 20 colors at once."
"The living room is in a plummy, chocolaty, pale blue world, but it isn't any one of those colors," says Tedhams, referring to the chameleonlike fabrics. Footstool in Sea Anemone velvet by Nigel Atkinson, armchairs in TX-Tucana from F. J. Hakimian, and sofas in Christopher Hyland's Cielo. Tedhams calls the custom armchairs "bug chairs": "They feel alive, like squat little beetles." The lamp and vase on the bookcase are by Jean Besnard, a French potter who worked with Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann and Jacques Adnet.
A ceiling painted in Benjamin Moore Waterborne in Van Deusen Blue picks up the color of the Joola Ping-Pong table. Estadio light fixture from Plug Lighting.
In the entry, a Pierre Jeanneret armchair in bright Cavallini pony skin from Edelman stands out against the brown paneling.
In the upstairs study, a velvet sofa is paired with Axel Vervoordt's Ghyka coffee table.
Lustrous surfaces, like the silk headboard in Kalamata from Christopher Hyland and a box spring covered in Donghia's Hanoi, add glamour to the master bedroom, which is painted in Farrow & Ball's Estate Emulsion in Stony Ground.
Tedhams designed the nine-foot-long master bath vanity, made of ebonized walnut and verdigris copper with a Belgian bluestone top.
Grove Brickworks tile and Henry showerhead, all by Waterworks, in the master bath.
In the guest bedroom, she chose a Moroccan Tuareg mat from F. J. Hakimian as a masculine counterpart to the swirling 19th-century French gilt-and-wrought-iron bed.
