A modern sanctuary nestled within the home’s primary suite, Le Fumoir Féminin offers the lady of the house a retreat from responsibility and Upper East Side propriety. An enveloping cocoon for her private passions, artful collections, and little vices, Workshop/APD’s decompression zone blurs the lines between architecture, interior design, and furnishings. Inspired by swirling smoke plumes, the room’s architecture is softened by curving, artfully lit panels with incorporated floating shelving, awash in a custom plaster finish. The space is sensual and tactile from floor to ceiling- from a deeply textured custom Marc Phillips floor covering to the ceiling’s expressive Fromental wallpaper in rich, earthy, feminine tones. An immersive sound system by Christopher William Lifestyle Technology, transformative LED daylighting, and custom, vintage, and gallery furnishings chosen for their compelling lines, comfort, and unique materiality set the scene for cocktails and intimate conversation with her inner circle, perusing her favorite records, and late-night lounging in high style.
