Residence for an Art Collector
Today residence is designed by Ledbetter Fullerton Architects and is in New Orleans, LA.The owner of this house, an art collection, requested that the interiors be designed to highlight an extraordinary art collection while not feeling like a museum. A palette of neutral colors for fabrics, rugs, curtains, and wood paneling was chosen to create a warm surrounding for the collection of several hundred photographs and paintings. Every attempt was made to combine contemporary furnishings with European antiques in each room, emphasizing that the backdrop for the art is a comfortable home.
Louis XVI armchairs and bergeres and Biedermeier side tables and benches are combined with both custom pieces and modern pieces by the likes of Warren Platne, Mies van de Rohe, Le corbusier, Paul Kjaerholm, Edith Norton, Karl Springer, Florence Knoll, T.H Robsjohn Gibbins, and Christian Liagre.
