I love my Brooklyn apartment, but honestly, there are just not enough rooms and spaces to decorate. Sure there’s our combo kitchen/living room and our combo office/bedroom, but I long for a long hallway or a fabulous foyer (ahem, foy-ay) to style and stage. When I saw Downtown‘s Muirfield Bench on Dering Hall, it earned a special spot in the vestibule of my fantasies.
Inspired by early 19th century French and Italian design, it’s graceful, regal, and in that hot red lacquer, wouldn’t look out of place in a chinoiserie-accented abode. It’s a dramatic touch that’s perfect for welcoming company. Talk about making an entrance.
