After several decades away from the show-house circuit, Robert A.M. Stern with Lauren Kruegel and Ross Alexander, representing a new generation of leadership at Robert A.M. Stern Interiors, are pleased to re-engage at the 2017 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. The design team glamorized Charles Platt's staid brown wood-paneled dining room with bold colors; one wall of yellow Venetian plaster features large framed fragments of Andy Warhol's 1966 Day-Glo chartreuse and hot pink cow-head wallpaper from Mr. Stern's personal collection.
Villa Necchi, a 1935 house in Milan designed by Piero Portaluppi, which the design team admired for its stripped-down classicism in Luca Guadagnino's 2009 film I Am Love
, inspired them to combine a selection of Italian furniture dating from the 1930s through the 1950s with Modern French pieces from the same period. A "Janus" chandelier
, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects for Remains Lighting, provides soft light above an all-glass desk by noted Italian designer and architect Gio Ponti. Other works from Mr. Stern's collection, including William Pettit's abstract "Nor Night Me" (1969), complete the composition.
