An Art Deco–style rock-crystal chandelier by Alexandre Vossion crowns the smoking room of a Manhattan townhouse by William T. Georgis, where walls painted in a high-gloss Benjamin Moore black are the backdrop for a Marilyn Minter photograph and a neon work by Tracey Emin; the curtains are of a Larsen fabric, and the Carlo Mollino stools, covered in a J. Robert Scott faux suede, are from Salon 94.
In a majestic 19th-century space in Paris, Joseph Dirand let his imagination run wild, without parameters (not even livability).
In the skylit living room, walls finished with integral plaster display a copper sculpture by Anish Kapoor and a Roman mosaic panel from the second century. Surrounding a massive cocktail table draped in an antique French tapestry are sofas and an armchair designed by Atelier AM; the ivory upholstery is a Loro Piana linen. The chandelier is Murano glass, and the hemp carpet is by Mansour.
