The architect and interior designer outfitted their lavish Tribeca loft with 20th-century furnishings and decor. White-oak paneling lines the living room, which is appointed with a sofa in a Nancy Corzine silk velvet and a pair of vintage Swedish swivel chairs; the large artwork on the easel is by Rees Roberts’s brother Marcus, the 1952 wood-frame chair is by Jorge Zalszupin, and the carpet is Moroccan.
Monumental bookshelves delineate the living and dining areas. A Sherwin-Williams taupe paint serves as a muted backdrop for a 1960 Georges Braque print (at left) and vintage Vistosi pendant lights. Ib Kofod-Larsen chairs upholstered in a Roger Arlington silk surround the Rees Roberts + Partners dining table, which is topped with Dorothy C. Thorpe Lucite candlesticks.
A ’50s Fernand Léger print adds color to one of the white Corian walls in the galley kitchen; the cabinets are faced with Kinon cast-resin panels, and the range is by Bertazzoni.
Antiqued mercury glass sheathes a hallway fitted with H. Theophile door hardware.
