Cindy Sherman

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

New York based artist, Cindy Sherman's home has been photographed for the August 2009 US Vogue and I fell in love with some of the design concepts seen in the story (especially the wardrobe gallery next to the suspended staircase). Sherman worked with young architects, Todd Rouhe and Maria Ibanez de Sendadiano and what they ended up with was an open plan, cleanly designed and ultra-contemporary home, with lots of light and great views of the Hudson River

Paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures by Martin Kippenberger, Dana Schutz, and a raft of other artists, including some close friends and quite a few unknowns ("It's cheaper, and I also like to support younger artists"), are everywhere. She even has some on the exterior of the cedar closet-room where she keeps her own clothes—yards of Prada, Marni, and Narciso Rodriguez. Her shoes, mostly sky-high platforms, fill at least 20 floor-to-ceiling shelves in two other closets. What a life.....

Southern views from the rooftop terrace. The orange chair and ottoman are by Wiel Arets for Quinze & Milan. The green chair is by Karim Rashid for Label.

The reverse side of Sherman's closet serves as an ever-changing gallery. An oak and steel suspended staircase leads to the living and dining spaces.
