The entryway was designed to serve as the introductory showcase for the clients’ collection of Art Deco furnishings. Most prominent is the sculpture by Paul Vera with gold leaf over gesso and plaster, originally from the SS Normandy. The fluted, plaster ceiling in gold leaf was created as a backdrop for the chandelier. A long, mitred mahogany console and wall panels balance the scale of the entry foyer. Rosa Zarcci marble for the floor complements the two Biedermeier silver leaf chairs with embossed leather posted with gold studs.
