Stepping in the front door on a recent morning, we find a giant bronze sculpture in the shape of a Chanel shopping bag, a creation by Jonathan Seliger. Steps away, a corner vignette is anchored by another oversize piece, an elaborately carved wooden door just in from Jaipur. Also within this front room, a custom coffee table by Thomas Throop, a local furniture maker coincidentally profiled in WAG in 2013, adds depth, as do a couple of pineapple sculptures, a vivid green couch and a turquoise tray filled with a grouping of martini glasses.
