Architectural Digest brings the world deep into Marc Jacobs’s coveted home in the West Village. The US$10.5 million, 4-storey, 4,500-square-foot home reveals an orderly sophistication that stands in stark contrast to rumors of the designer’s proclivity for outlandish parties. Jacobs worked with interior designer Thad Hayes to populate the home with “great Art Deco furniture, pieces from the ’70s, and contemporary art” and develop the space to “something smart, sharp, and comfortable.”
Marc Jacobs’s master bedroom boasts six paintings by John Currin, a pair of Lalanne bronze monkeys, two Dominique armchairs covered in a Holly Hunt fabric, and an Alberto Giacometti floor lamp. The Jansen dresser and mirror are from Bernd Goeckler Antiques. Neville surveys the scene from a vintage settee; the low table is by Jean-Michel Frank. Floral design, here and throughout, by Ariel Dearie Flowers.
In the foyer, a Philip and Kelvin LaVerne cabinet from Donzella 20th Century Gallery is flanked by Frits Henningsen chairs beneath a Jansen mirror from Bernd Goeckler Antiques. The Alberto Giacometti floor lamp is from Vallois. The silk rug is by Tai Ping.
In the living room, a 1962 Ellsworth Kelly painting surmounts the custom-made mica mantel. Diego Giacometti bronze stools join a Jean Dunand lacquer cocktail table and a Eugène Printz side table on the bespoke V’Soske rug. Armchairs in the manner of Francis Jourdain are covered in a Holly Hunt fabric.
The house is full of art and design masterpieces, but nothing is more treasured than Neville, Jacobs’s oft-photographed bull terrier, who has nearly 200,000 Instagram followers.
