This beautiful $20million New York living room may be the most covetable in the world. The vast lounge on the city’s Upper West Side is 24 feet high and boasts breathtaking views over the city’s American Museum of Natural History and Central Park.
Floor-to-ceiling Corinthian columns give the feeling of being in a museum, castle, or giant public library and draw the eye upwards toward a magnificent Miro-style mural in Venetian plaster.
The gorgeous swirls of blue, white and yellow were painted on to the ceiling by Madrid-based artist Ramon Canet, who lived and worked in the apartment while its owners were renovating it.
On one wall is a vast, working stone fireplace built in the 17th-century on the Iberian Peninsula and at one end of the vast room are a wooden table and chair set by George Nakashimi, arguably the top woodworking artisan of the 20th century.
