BLACKER LACQUERED

CREDITS: STEFAN BOUBIL, INTERIOR DESIGNER

<>>///client request: 
humph...i want the apartment to look like a shanghai nightclub.

cindy gallop, chairman of BBH (one of the biggest advertising firms out there) seems like a dream client, to which the interior designer responded "well howsahbout we paint the whole apartment a black lacquered chinese box?"  apparently trust was a big deciding factor.  the apartment now acquires all its light from pops of color that reflect off the flea market finds, vacation souvenirs, and just about 30 years of intellectually fine-tuned hoarding (ehm gucci chainsaw...probably limited edition huh?)

apartment look familiar? it was converted from the first YMCA locker rooms in the U.S.
