A Housing Project

The study is dedicated to the designer’s father, Monroe Ridless, who passed away shortly before the project was completed.

Mario Buatta

Returning to Kips Bay for the “twelfth or thirteenth time,” Mario Buatta transformed the oval dining area into a relaxed sitting room for two. Warmed by pickled pine walls, gold tea paper on the ceiling, and a predominance of yellow-hued fabrics, the room’s centerpiece is a behemoth double-sided sofa that creates two groups of seating. “If he and she aren’t speaking, they can sit on opposite sides, otherwise they can stretch out and talk across the back,” offers the designer.

John Barman Design & Decoration

John Barman and Jack Levy describe their second-floor lounge as “Stanley Kubrick meets Park Avenue.” Sensitive to the house’s architectural integrity, the designers devised a bold, contemporary concept that coexists with the building’s traditional elements. Carved pilasters flank trippy bubble mirrors, a long sofa is upholstered in white microfiber, and conventional table shapes are reinterpreted in acrylic. Pillows made of watery shades of blue silk counterbalance a graphic, black-and-white carpet pattern.

House Interior Design: Updating Living  Rooms and Other Rooms

Richard L. Ridge and Roderick R. Denault Interior Design

Richard Ridge and Roderick Denault updated a traditional scheme in their memorable fifth-floor living room, Spectrum 2000. “We decided to create an uptown downtown room,” says Rod Denault. Emerald green walls with contrasting pilasters, colorful upholstered furniture, modern paintings, and a grid-patterned rug constituted the room’s bold, vibrant design. “We used restraint,” adds Dick Ridge, referring to the clean, uncluttered assemblage of traditional shapes enlivened by the designers’ contemporary color palette.

Richard Mishaan

Richard Mishaan’s Work From Home/Home From Work was a stylish yet functional blend of art, design, and technology. Described as a “glamorous yet minimal setting,” the room featured numerous pieces from Mishaan’s signature furniture line juxtaposed with contemporary and classic designs by Olivier Gagnere, Eric Schmicht, Mies van der Rohe, and Tommi Parzinger. Subtle shades of antique gold pervaded the room, creating a “soft, calming environment” that recalled the glamour of 1940s Hollywood updated to provide “a true living and working space.”

Stewart Manger for David Anthony Easton Inc.

Working in the traditional aesthetic for which his firm is famous, Stewart Manger of David Anthony Easton Inc. created Secret Repose, a comfortable bedroom warmed by golden hues of yellow with green and red accents. Inspired by the room’s classical proportions and symmetry, Manger assembled a comfortable mix of 18th- and 19th-century antiques along with furniture designs by Easton himself. This same fourth-floor bedroom was decorated by David Easton during the house’s previous Kips Bay incarnation in 1986.

David Barrett

An animated mix of moods and periods, David Barrett’s third-floor library incorporated exotica from around the world. The designer blended French and English antiques harmoniously with his own furniture designs and pieces from the Near, Far, and Middle East. Patterned fabrics, delicate stenciling, and decorative curiosities further underscored the designer’s preference for adventurous and unexpected combinations. “Balance and proportion,” says Barrett, “are the key ingredients in the mix.”

Roderick N. Shade

Inspired by a wide variety of sources, Roderick Shade’s third-floor guest suite presented the designer’s signature blend of antiques, contemporary pieces, and African artifacts. Comprised of an intimate sitting room adjacent to a stylish bathroom, the L-shaped suite was unified by a tonal mix of striped and checkered patterns. Soothing taupes and subtle textures complemented the stylized silhouettes of Shade’s furniture designs. The daybed, desk, nesting tables, chairs, and bathroom furnishings reflected the designer’s affinity for African-influenced shapes and dark wood finishes.

Greg Jordan

Designed with young-hearted collectors in mind, Greg Jordan’s second-floor living room offered a spirited mix of cultures and traditions. The room’s original oak paneling, augmented by painted panels and borders inspired by a Japanese screen depicted in a John Singer Sargent painting, created an impressionistic backdrop for eclectic antique pieces and contemporary art. “The room is a study in luxury room design” says Jordan, noting sumptuous silk velvet and silk satin upholstery and a 19th-century, silk, cotton, and wool Persian carpet. Antique furniture of diverse provenance was casually grouped to give the room a youthful, modern feel, confirming Jordan’s emphatic declaration that this was not just another dull, traditional, paneled room.
