Marianne Boesky is the owner of a self-titled gallery in downtown New York, she's a new wife and mother, and she lives in a dare-I-say "sick" apartment over her internationally acclaimed shop. The Marianne Boesky Gallery supports the work of contemporary international artists of all media, including Sarah Sze, Takashi Murakami, and Yoshitomo Nara—in other words, no fox hunting landscapes in sight.
Her husband, Liam Culman, an equity sales trader, who previously lived in a minimalist loft by Richard Gluckman, wanted to go for a traditional aesthetic this time. The couple commissioned Deborah Berke, an architect known for her elegant but minimalist modern brand of design, to find a way to balance the work of Boesky's emerging designer pals with traditional furniture pieces, architectural moldings, and dark wood floors. The result is a stunning achievement, and an inspiration for those of us with a significant other to please.
