Calm, Cool, Collected

The living room of Nina Bauer and Andrew Shapiro’s New York City apartment, which was renovated by architect David Ruff of Design Laboratories and decorated by Penny Drue Baird of Dessins. The space serves as a gallery for works by, from left, Damien Hirst, William Klein, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. The angular armchairs are 1930s French, the barrel-back bergères are from Lee Calicchio, and the cowhide rug is by Stark Carpet.

Hand-painted wallpaper by Gracie adds shimmer to the dining room. The 1940s Italian bronze chandeliers are from Carlos de la Puente, the midcentury Austrian chairs are from Bardin Palomo, and the table was custom made by Mark H. Luedeman; the antique herringbone floor is from Exquisite Surfaces.

The Quarrel by Cecily Brown hangs above a velvet-upholstered sofa in the living room; the cocktail table is ’40s French.

In the library, custom-made sofas upholstered in a Holly Hunt leather nestle in individual niches under lithographs by Sam Francis; the cocktail tables are by Christian Liaigre. The ottomans, by Ralph Lauren Home, are covered in a J. Robert Scott fabric; the rug was custom made by Stark Carpet.

A 1960s light fixture from Venfield presides over the breakfast nook. Ruff designed the lacquer cabinetry; the chair is from Design Within Reach, and the Roman-shade fabric is by Lulu DK. The countertops and wainscot are statuary marble.

In the master bedroom, the bed is upholstered in embroidered fabric by Holland & Sherry, and the bed linens were custom made by Casa del Bianco. The 1920s chandelier is by Baguès, the photographs are by Anni Leppälä, and a J. Robert Scott fabric covers the sofa.
