Splendiferous Interiors: Lippincott Hybrid Mixes Historic, Modern and Makes Stunning Use of Oriental Rugs

This unit on the market in the Lippincott references the past without being slavishly historic. With a Duncan Phyfe (or Duncan Phyfe-style) table, modern art, industrial lighting, oriental rugs and African art colliding in an eclectic mix, a steel beam with plump rivets spanning 14 feet, floor to ceiling, represents both old and new.

The Washington Square apartment has multiple views of the park from 19 custom-designed windows.
