mid-century modern
Over-the-top 1950s was the concept for this eclectic room in New Rochelle. Lucite Z chairs and two of Tom Dixon’s motorcycle-inspired chairs surround a massive tree bark table with jagged edges bought in Newport. Four panels of sequined drapes add drama and sparkle. The console is a Parzinger original; lamps are by Maurice Villency. Oversize display cabinets come from Lillian August. Designer: Michelle Sanchez–Boyce, Simplicity Designs, New Rochelle

dramatic dining
Two 66-inch custom tables by Evanson Studios in New York City were chosen for entertaining flexibility in this gracioius home in Purchase. For small gatherings, only one table is used; for a crowd, the two tables are combined with leaves extended. The 20-foot-long light fixture, also custom, glows with exposed filament bulbs. Blue and crème theme colors are carried out through the textured, custom-dyed Jacobsen and Balla wallpaper, chairs covered in different fabrics from Holly Hunt and Rose Tarlow, and a Tibetan rug from Patterson, Flynn, and Martin. Designer: Sandra Oster Interiors, Greenwich, CT

multicultural melange
An eclectic composition of Asian and contemporary artisan elements are enveloped by ochre-colored Venetian plaster walls. The ornate gold Italian chandelier and wrought-iron gate add an Italian flavor while the silk textile on the wall and stacked boxes underneath are Asian flavors. The 18-foot ceilings are pierced with clerestory windows, bathing the room in natural light, niches contain a Southwestern urn flanked by two four-foot-high contemporary urns. The designer updated the antique chairs, which came from the owner’s parents’ house, by adding white linen cushions with tassels. Enhancing the walnut floor is a patterned area rug, created from carpeting, also from the owner’s parents’ house, which the decorator cut and bound with a suede trim. Designer: Constance Hall Design, Chappaqua
