This breathtaking salon exudes luxurious style. A large work by Russian painter Oleg Vassiliev dominates this living room. It's paired with an oversized cotton-upholstered sofa flanked by 19th-century suede-covered French chairs.
After his client downsized to a smaller house in Summit, New Jersey, designer Kevin Isbell accommodated her 12-foot-long sofa in the living room by putting it against a wall with a doorway. To "defuse the fact," he hung her showstopping 19th-century sorcerer's mirror above it, creating the feeling of a solid wall.
