The living room is the area that homeowner Richard Long considers the introverted area of the house: This is where the family goes for quiet moments: listening to or playing music, reading or pausing for a minute of reflection. It adjoins the dining room, which is painted a dark gray for a cozy feel. “Our goal is to have an art collection,” says Richard, “so we wanted a color that would fade into the background and let the art stand out.” Simple but glossy moldings and creamy walls are set off by the rich textures of leather, jute and wood in the living room.

To make the most of the limited square footage of a New York City apartment, architect Michael K. Chen created a now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t “party wall.” By day all that is visible in the entry of the home is a wall of sleekly lacquered cabinets and drawers. But after dark, in the words of the architect, “the panels open to reveal a full bar with integral refrigeration and tap, and storage in a louche walnut burl with integral LED lighting. A display compartment has another dual personality, flipping from cool and white, to richly burled wood. A separate compartment reveals an integral custom humidor in milled cedar. Finally, integrated into the piece is a five-foot-long pull-out dining element that slides out, cantilevering from the storage volume on custom steel hardware, creating a micro dining room.”
