I remember admiring many of Coburn Architecture's beautiful projects when they first joined houzz, a few month ago. This morning, after reading Becky's comment on the buzz board, I felt like browsing these projects all over again. So thank you Becky!
Thanks to you, I found this beautiful interior design project called "refuge in park slope". I was even happier to find out that Coburn documented all the interesting details: the furniture, the art and the accessories- what a delight!
This 1940s French mirror is decorated in the Eglomise technique popularized in the 18th century. It depicts costumed monkeys and birds of paradise. Dessin Fournir Carter wing chairs are upholstered in a Schumacher fabric. Gilded wall sconces date to the Regency period.
Hip Federal describes the aesthetic of this interior. A pair of 1940s Murano mercury glass chandeliers with glass pendants casts a warm glow. Two 1930s faux bamboo Bergeres and a black crackle lacquer stool create a venue for conversation.
A late 19th century still life is saturated with color. Faux bamboo tea table dates to the 1920s and features a decoupage top. A highly stylized turn-of-the-century wingback chair was re-covered in a modern flame stitch. Floor lamp is by Visual Comfort.
The bedroom and adjacent dressing room are joined by the master bath. Side tables are by Paul Frankl and lamp is an antique Italian marble urn. The Kravet bench with scrolled arms is covered in a Schumacher mohair. Chandelier is by Visual Comfort.
This late 19th century Bergere features a delicately carved wood frame with a swan detail. Found at auction, it was restored and finished in silver leaf and then upholstered in a soft blue linen velvet. The bureau is by Paul Frankl
