who doesn’t love a good #tbt ? the finish line is in sight for this hamptons project (just in time for summer!). we are still swooning over the simplistic design details of this master bathroom. what is your favorite feature? psst, this enormous shower has our hearts!
"I corpi che venero
Non sono contorti come membra
Ritratte in sanguigna
E nei rossi di Verona ch'evidenziano
Coi loro lampi gialli i petti leonini
I volti digrignati, gli artigli
E le fauci perennemente insozzate
Di porpora e d'oro.
I corpi che venero
Sono intenti a intrecciarsi nel bianco
A liberarsi l'un l'altro
E solo dopo tremando
Nei loro muscoli di neve
Che pare possano sciogliersi ad ogni attimo
E tu debba aiutarli a sorreggersi.
Sono troppo fragili per non sentirlo dentro.
Sicché l'unica presa che ammiro
È quella sulla carne di Persefone."

Since 1885, when Manhattan’s the Osborne was built, residents have taken their decorative cues from the building’s period references, outfitting their apartments with William Morris–style wallpaper and favrile-glass lamps. But @davidgmaupin and Stefano Tonchi chose a different route. “The space is traditional,” Tonchi says, “but that doesn’t mean it has to be conservative.” They invited their friend #AD100 architect @annabelleselldorf to help them revamp the Victorian-era apartment into an elegant setting for modern living. As clients, Selldorf says, Tonchi and Maupin “feel like family. There were no differences of opinion. We had this serendipitous relationship, playing off each other’s ideas.” They shared not only a frame of reference that spans contemporary art and midcentury Italian design but also certain obsessions—the work of Gio Ponti, Venetian glass by Seguso, Venini, and Carlo Moretti. Says Maupin: “We kind of read each other’s minds and agreed.” The master bath, pictured here, is clad in calacatta paonazzo marble. To take a tour of the apartment, visit the link in our profile.
