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.

ANICHINI in Architectural Digest February 2015

Not your typical restoration: The Victorian townhouse in Boston that was recently renovated by architect Dell Mitchell and interior decorators Heather Wells and Bruce Fox was anything but. By the time the property was found by its current owners it had been completely gutted. There were no period details remaining to speak of its gloried past. All that remained was a pale stone façade.

The new owners, an art-collecting couple with four grown children, sought to accommodate their large, striking contemporary artworks in an inviting domestic setting. So Mitchell set about recreating the space as a dialogue between traditional and modern design, creating the feel that certain spaces had been restored and others added.

Mitchell’s architectural sleights of hand are buttressed by Wells and Fox’s vibrant materials, finishes, and furnishings. In the master bedroom the bed is outfitted with ANICHINI’s luxurious Raso Sateen Sheets in ivory and a hand loomed Amdo 4-Ply Cashmere Blanket in oatmeal. An Amdo Cashmere Throw rests upon a bedside chair.
