Eclectic Interest

Quite an eclectic mix of style and antique wonders bleeds to the artistic in Liza Sherman’s apartment in Manhattan. The legendary antiques dealer is sharp, confident woman, possessing a quirkiness of a woman half her age. Her living space features an Italian daybed with burlap upholstery, a 1950s Hollywood style light, and a train rail cart as a cocktail table.

Her study features a French banner, a floating chair!, a 1940s French floor lamp and a vintage 1950s metal spring chair.  Eclecticism at its finest. Of decor style Sherman says, “I don’t decorate. I see objects and furniture as shapes, lines, and forms,” and that, “Perfect surfaces don’t interest me.”

Sherman’s master bedroom displays a portrait by Liam Ritt, the fireplace mantle serves as a headboard for the bed, a dresser from India along with framed 1920s bathing suits.
