If you've a taste for the enigmatic, bypass New York's more frequented neighbourhoods and let Union Square draw you in. Those in the know flock to the area for its nightlife and intriguing spots. Entering Arden Place II, you may feel you've stumbled into a den of antiquities with its cracked candlesticks and weathered sculptures set amid polished concrete and earthy grey hardwoods. But step through the billowing curtains out onto the rooftop deck – the city views are enough to ground you firmly in the present.
Your hosts are an artistic pair who find fascination in fashion, travel, and their collection of esoteric antiques. They've flavoured their home with pieces from different periods of history as well as from across the globe.
Where carved wooden doors from centuries past meet Middle Eastern lamps and hand-crafted beadwork – it’s this home’s artful relics that stand out. And though the peeling paint and patinaed metal might feel well-aged, you'll find state-of-the-art appliances in the kitchen, an impressive sound system and flatscreen televisions, too.
But perhaps this home’s greatest asset is beyond the spiral staircase – a breezy master suite and private deck with views across the city.
