ILevel in the News: Brooke Shields’s Art Collection in her NYC Townhome

We get to work with some pretty incredible clients and equally impressive art in our line of work. While we try not to play favorites, it’d be hard for us to deny how much we loved installing Brooke Shields’s art collection in her beautiful Manhattan townhome.

Not only is Ms. Shields a lovely person herself, her art collection is both interesting and unlike anything we’ve ever seen. This is largely due to the fact that, as a recent piece in the New York Times describes, she often received artwork as gifts directly from the prominent artists who were her friends in her modeling days during the 1980s. This is how she ended up with original work by Andy Warhol, Ron Gallela and personally signed pieces from Keith Haring (like the one above her fireplace in the photo above). 

Besides the gifted art, Shields also has a collection of more personal pieces, like the commissioned paintings of her daughters by Will Cotton, which flank the Haring on either side of her fireplace. 

We’re honored to call her a client.

Trend we Love: Sculptural Wall Art

If you’re sick of your current wall art situation, then maybe it’s time to think outside the frame. More and more lately, we’ve seen our clients forgoing standard works like paintings and prints for three-dimensional, sculptural wall art. The effect is more unique and gallery like than any 2-D piece, and there are nearly as many style and media options as you’d find with framed art.

Among our favorite examples of the sculptural wall art trend is this recent client project, below. The wire sculpture was installed between two windows, breaking up the gridlike feel of the wall without adding a heavy or overbearing element that would compete with the views beyond.

Here, in another client project, Chinese porcelain figurines sit atop wall mounts and are an unexpected addition to a Federalist mirror.

The perfect way to add an element of texture to a minimalist space: a tonal, graphic wall relief.

If you love the dimensional look of sculpture but don’t want to ditch your existing collection, try turning your artwork into a 3-D display by standing it on individual shelves or mounts.
