Vicente Wolf Takes It Over the Top at Union Square

Standing at the Union Square farmers' market, the cast iron arches of the former headquarters of Tiffany and Company always made me swoon. This week, I had the pleasure of viewing them from the inside out.

The 19th century manufacturing, office and showroom space has been transformed into a monument to large-scale living. The 16-foot ceilings are enough to stop one dead in their tracks.

Vicente Wolf thoroughly assumed his role as designer for the 36-unit building. He took on everything from doorknobs to sink fixtures to the pool in the basement.

Yes, it's house porn taken to a new level, but it's good to be informed of the extremes! There's always an idea to borrow and apply to one's own home.
