NYC&G Presents!

A 19th Century Living Room For the 21st Century

Respecting the architecture of the grand-scaled room, we applied a subtle Farrow & Ball strie wallpaper on the walls and a wallpaper with gold bee silhouettes on the ceiling. A perfectly scaled antique Khorassan carpet from Nazmiyal anchors the floor and reinforces the history of the home. We added a complex but understated mix of mostly vintage and antique furnishings and accessories from exemplary New York dealers, and a selection of bold 1950-60’s works of art from Berry Campbell Gallery – all sourced from 1st Dibs.

32 Livingston Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201

11am-5pm Tuesday through Sunday (closed Mondays)
Admission $40, includes a journal
