This year’s edition of Architectural Digest offers readers a peep into Marc Jacobs’ luxurious four-story townhouse in the West Village. The fashion designer has worked with interior designer Thad Hayes to create a “smart, sharp, and comfortable” space furnished with “great Art Deco furniture, pieces from the ’70s, and contemporary art.” For instance, the designer handpicked a pair of bronze monkeys by François-Xavier Lalanne as a decoration for his own bedroom. “I saw them in a picture in Vogue, and I became fixated. I had to have them,” Jacobs speaks of his treasured art piece. “I called Paul Kasmin Gallery, I called Sotheby’s, and eventually I called [art collector and Warhol superstar] Jane Holzer. She introduced me to the Lalannes in Paris, and she found me the monkeys,” the designer continues to explain in excitement.
Browse the gallery above to check out different corners of Jacobs’ coveted 4,500-square-foot home, featuring (of course) the designer’s beloved pet dog.
