Antique and Modern Pairing

In a corner of this living room, a magnificently  carved 18th century French demilune cabinet  with traces of the original gilding pairs well with this contemporary masterpiece by artist Sandro Chia. A hand blown Venetian glass bowl, flecked with gold, sits on the white marble top of the cabinet.  The subtle carpet, custom woven for this room in Tibet, uses colors from the artwork.  The walls are glazed with  multiple layers of soft tan  that compliment the wood parquet floor. The glaze extends to the custom designed crown and base moldings, enveloping the space in color. The grandly  scaled upholstered chaise  is covered with  a Clarence House damask fabric.
