Coffin is a major antique collector who took up interior design in 2001. When he moved into his Scottsdale, Arizona condo, he transformed the drab 2,240 sq ft condo with 20 foot ceilings into a distinguished space filled with warm character.
Coffin has been collecting antiques for years, but rather than make his home feel like a museum, he uses a mix of formal pieces and cheaper finds to make it livable, for example: mixing a casual ticking slipcover with finials and fringe on the sofa.
In the living room an antelope-printed carpet adds visual interest to the brown-hued room. Orange throw pillows and an Hermes blanket add a pop of colour, while a vintage piece of Louis Vuitton luggage belonging to JKF is mounted on a stand and used as the coffee table.
The arm chair and matching ottoman with nailhead detail is quite striking and Coffin obviously has a sense of humour with his taste for throw pillows.
The dining room contains a welsh dresser filled with old Paris porcelain and an antique Versailles chandelier with monogrammed slipcovered dining chairs rounding out the French feel.
The kitchen's carerea marble countertops and backsplash look very grand with french-style cabinetry.
I don't really care for the antique table though (i'd much rather ditch it and keep the cheese!)
A variety of pattern livens up the neutral tones of the master bedroom with yet another Hermes throw gracing yet another piece of Vuitton luggage.
Antique boxes, clocks and other tchotkes find homes on desks, coffee tables, hutches and nightables adding their vintage flair and sense of history -- all in all a masculine space with style to spare!
