The Ivory room

Opposite the Ebony room is the Ivory room, which offers sumptuous seating and illustrates the client’s desire for perfection. This sitting room is clad in the whitest natural log of English Sycamore available worldwide. The consistent rhythm of markings on the veneer allowed the millwork to be matched in sequence lending a subtle, sophisticated pattern to the walls.

The expression of textures continues in the pair of mahogany sleigh armchairs by André Sornay, studded with his signature clouté technique and finished with wraparound upholstery of natural shearling.

The powerful Japanese folding screen is a mid-twentieth century view of horses and cranes at Mt. Fuji.
