See It Again
Ivanka Trump's Park Avenue apartment, originally decorated by Emma Jane Pilkington, has been published several times: House & Garden, January 2005; In Style, January 2007; The New York Times; and now, a friendly reader tells me, it's featured in the current British edition of In Style. The place has such an appealing mix of fine antiques and youthful pieces. In case you missed it on the first go-round, above are some of the views from In Style (U.S. edition, January 2007.)
If you dig those yellow-lacquered tea tables, shown top, visit Eboniste. For similar contemporary chairs, as seen in Trump's library above, try Oly Studio. The sofa, shown top facing forward, is covered in Lulu de Kwiatkowski's hand-printed cotton Moondance in light blue. Design Public stocks similar decorative pillows by Thomas Paul.
A fun place to hunt for antique and vintage chinoiserie accessories, in Atlanta, is Interiors Market. This isn't a flea market -- expect prices anywhere from $100 to over $20,000 -- but the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. It is a great place to educate your eye. Below are some of my favorite Interiors Market finds, a brass pagoda, red papier mache box and crystal lamp.
Below, by popular demand, are more lovely views of Trumps's place as seen in House & Garden, January 2005. Being a big fan of Emma Jane Pilkington's work, I've shared these before.
