Fabulous Room Friday 07.09.10

Today’s Fabulous Room belongs to Ethan Feirstein and Ari Heckman, whose New York home was featured in the latest issue of Lonny. While the one-bedroom is a small space, it is packed with style. For example, I love the collected, masculine look of the pieces in the picture above. Be sure to notice the Greek Key trim on the chair. I also love the bold, abstract painting and maps.

For the record, I love zebra print. I think it is quite possibly one of the most beautiful and enduring graphic prints in existence. However, real zebra hide rugs creep me out. There is just something about seeing the poor animal’s mane and holes where the eyes once were that feels wrong to me. Yes, I eat meat and wear leather, but there’s something about using one of nature’s most beautiful creatures as a rug that doesn’t quite jive for me. I just had to say it.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I am still missing Barcelona and getting back into the rhythm of my regular life. Be sure to check back next week because I will be sharing pictures and details from my trip to my new favorite city.

  1. Thanks for being brave in stating your dislike of zebra skins. I am with you on that. Also don’t like taxidermy items like deer heads, etc. on the walls. There is just something unsettling about stepping on the zebra tail or mane.
