Anichini Cashmere Blanket in Architectural Digest

Architectural Digest showcases Michael Hirtenstein’s remarkable redesign of a lower Manhattan apartment building originally designed by architect Enrique Norten. Working with Architectural designer Thomas Juul-Hansen and decorator Amy Lau, Hirtenstein consolidated five separate apartments into a showstopping three-floor spread that totals 8,600 square feet, with an additional 5,500 square feet of outdoor space.

“Michael is obsessed with tactile quality and dimensionality. You can see it in the exquisite fabrics and window treatments, which are like couture creations,” says Lau, who has worked with Hirtenstein on three previous residences. “He definitely likes bling, but the bling here has restraint—it’s a subtle knockout.”

For the bed, they chose ANICHINI’s cashmere, hand loomed in Nepal and available in three weaves and 160 colors, it is the most exquisite cashmere in the marketplace.
