A study in texture.
In the living room, a sculptural brass-and-onyx coffee table, designed in 1966 by Philippe Hiquily, is surrounded by two custom sofas, an antique bench, and a pair of Chaise Apollon chairs, originally designed by Lucien Rollin, reissued by William Switzer, and covered in by Jed Johnson Home. The curtains are made from a Hodsoll McKenzie wool and bordered in Cowtan & Tout's Chinois Stripe. Throw pillows in Glant's East End and Clarence House's Milo add interesting pattern and texture to the neutral color scheme.
"It's a square room, so I wanted a round dining table, which sort of nestles into the lighter center of the Tai Ping rug," Phoebe Howard says.

Palmer Hargrave sconces from Dessin Fournir. The curtains are of Pollack's Flaxen Satin.
