Thanks so much @archdigest
#Regram . "After landing on a Victorian-era apartment in Manhattan’s the Osborne building, @davidgmaupin and Stefano Tonchi invited their friend #AD100 architect @annabelleselldorf to help them revamp the space. The rigor and elegant restraint that have come to characterize Selldorf’s work are a far cry from the first impression made by the Osborne’s lobby—a brass, stucco, marble, Tiffany-style glass, mosaic, gold-leaf, and glazed terra-cotta phantasmagoria in the style of Aladdin. “Utterly ridiculous but totally beautiful,” Selldorf calls it—an opinion Maupin and Tonchi share. While other residents have taken their decorative cues from the building’s period references, outfitting their apartments with William Morris–style wallpaper and favrile-glass lamps, the three friends chose a different route. “The space is traditional,” Tonchi says, “but that doesn’t mean it has to be conservative.” Walls were painted white, as a backdrop for the art, in silent conversation with the furniture and fixtures. Most works are by artists from Maupin’s @lehmannmaupin gallery, with its diverse stable of talent from around the world. In the study, Gilbert & George’s Lover, a mixed-media grid printed with tabloid headlines, faces a grid of a different kind—a wall of custom @amuneal bookshelves with brass uprights and black shelves (above). The furniture is mostly midcentury modern in its lines, but, Tonchi notes, “the colors are a little off”—green, orange, and turquoise taken from the tile around the fireplaces. Some pieces are custom; others come from Vica, the company Selldorf started in 2004 to sell her own furniture. Visit the link in our profile to tour the apartment. " .
