“I’m not big on having a particular concept or look... I just want to live with things I genuinely love—great Art Deco furniture, pieces from the ’70s, and contemporary art. But I didn’t want the house to feel like a pristine gallery or a Deco stage set—just something smart, sharp, and comfortable.”

- MARC JACOBS via ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST



The New York townhouse of fashion designer Marc Jacobs exudes a vivid sense of order. A clear and cohesive relationship between every element of this interior ensures that Jacobs' love of collecting significant works of art and design is represented with nothing less than great respect for their creators. Though as freely admitted by Jacobs, he does enjoy the odd disruption to all of the 'order and refinement,' (a man after my own heart) but he is "...not interested in wacky juxtapositions for the sake of wackiness."

It is due to all of the above, that this Greenwich Village townhouse repeatedly holds our gaze, room after room, we are invited to relish in the undeniable warmth and curiously chic curation of Jacobs' impressive personal collection.
