Not only are British novelist Zadie Smith books a good read, the covers are also a visual pleasure. Brilliant.


Chez Diane

Diane von Furstenberg’s fashionable Manhattan penthouse is a relaxed yet opulent, live/work space in the Meatpacking District.

Her enticing adobe stars Franz West chairs, an Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann table, a Joan Miró etching, followed by a Francesco Clemente painting, a linen-draped pavilion made of bamboo and a freestanding teak tub -- just to name a few of her well chosen pieces.
