M2L Furniture - Interiors Magazine Dec-Jan 2017 - Harvey Probber Deep Tuft
 

Excerpt…

… Each room contains a mélange of custom pieces from the architecturally minded Levenstein, with one-of-a-kind highlights such as a Philippe Hiquily brass lamp found in Paris, Georges Jouve ceramics from L.A.’s knowledgeable decorative arts purveyor Sam Kaufman, a Harvey Probber sofa and the extremely rare Quark Plexiglas table by Emmanuel Babled, a low Sakura chair covered in a nubby Holly Hunt fabric, and a gilded bronze arboreal table by Willy Daro. Levenstein’s customizations include the thinly sliced onyx and glass wall that runs along the lounge, powder room and office upstairs, which spent two years in the R&D process before being perfected by a studio in Italy, and allows the house to glow like a lantern at night. Other Levenstein touches abound: the "kimono" belt surrounding a white sink with topographical lines by artisan Brandon Gore in the powder room; extended bases for the Milo Baughman chairs off the kitchen (who dares modify Baughman so successfully?); and the striking rosewood desk in the office, joining a midcentury wood chair found in Paris, the likes of which have rarely, if ever, been seen before or since the team discovered it.
