A collector's eclectic apartment

Furnishing by combining different styles and objects


PROJECT: Salvatore Scarfone



Apartment with a fully-mirrored and octagonalshaped entrance hall, from which branch out the rooms of the apartment. I added ancient furnishings, famous design pieces, and others designed by myself, mixing very different eras, from the early XIX empire candelabras to a 1950’s bookcase.

First version

Second version

Entrance room

The entrance hall has octagonal shape with mirror walls to reflect other rooms and create illusionistic effects:

  • My design of an Art Deco table inspired to the works by Ruhlmann;
  • a Deco style silver vase designed by myself;
  • ancient chinese prints

If in the first version the walls were covered with mirrors, in the second one I transformed it into a “Chinese gazebo” also to enhance the collection of ancient Chinese prints.

Living room

Third project (final)

  • The sofas are contemporary;
  • the library has been simplified to allow switching between rooms;
  • the left wall has been modified;
  • the lighting has been changed;
  • the fireplace has been replaced

Second project

In the second version various changes were made:

  • The wall behind the library is now unified with the dining room;
  • The marble floor has been replaced with the fish-bone parquet;
  • The wall of the chimney has a “folding fan” decoration that reminds to Deco;
