A pair of '50s-vintage French chairs by the fireplace hug the ground like campers hunkered by a bonfire. A vintage Boujad kilim rug adds extra softness atop Tamarian's Tuskden lamb striped carpet. Bold contemporary art floats unexpectedly from the chair rail. Furniture is sculptural, but padded. Monochromatic upholsteries allow the lavender walls--"which clients won't commit to"--to soothe.
