It’s super-minimalist with lots of wood.  I love the giant rice paper lamp!  I adore this look, but I don’t know if I’d have the discipline to keep things so uncluttered!  What do you think?  You can view the rest of the slides and article, here.

Julianna Margulies’ Elegant Modern-meets-Asian Bedroom

This month’s Architectural Digest features Julianna Margulies and Keith Lieberthal’s Soho apartment, with interior design by Vicente Wolf.  I especially like the serene master bedroom, a lovely mix of Asian and mid-century modern styles.

The light fixture is stunning, it looks like a layered Japanese umbrella. Other dashes of Asian style are the carved wood sideboard, wood chest of drawers and the buddha statue.

The chair and ottoman look to be the Eero Saarinen for Knoll, Womb Chair set upholstered in a nice light gray.
