Nearby, the nearly 23-by-19-foot dining room is purposely low-key. But during meal time, the room comes to life– with the table set, floweres and guests enjoying each other's company. “It's warm and beautiful,” Wexler says. In the media room, lacquered cabinetry organizes books and offers closed storage in symmetry. One of the few bold colors in furnishings is a vivid blue lacquered cocktail table Wexler designed; it takes cues from the art.

Another Georg Baselitz painting draws the eye to the end of a hallway leading to the master bedroom suite. Art by Eduardo Chillida hangs above a midcentury wood bench. The silk Brushstroke runner is from Fort Street Studio.

In the library, a custom bookcase made of lacquer and metal holds plenty of room for collectibles such as antiques and a white-glass elephant cameo vase by Émile Gallé from the 1920s; walls covered in gray mohair add soft texture. A painting by Victor Brauner hangs above a metal-framed chair and ottoman from Roark clad in Mongolian lamb.
Stumer says a 1950s French industrial look inspired the library's built-in lacquer-and painted-glass cabinetry, with raised slots that create patterns at metal sides to hold glass shelves. A circa-1925 Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann desk is a centerpiece, part of the couple's Art Deco collection. "Great Art Deco goes with everything," Wexler says. The mix of styles is just what the clients desired. "They didn't want to get stuck in any particular genre, which is why the apartment is timeless," Wexler says. "It's contemporary, with an eclectic mix of period pieces that serves to anchor every room."
