Maps, an Obsession of Place
I first fell in love with these maps in the Hall of Maps in the Vatican, Italy. The client wanted to feature maps of the places he's lived and loved, featuring local spots and homes with trompe-l'oeil cartouches to give historical descriptions of certain sites. This is a beautiful and personal way to document the places we love. This Shelter Island dining room depicts all the areas my client loved: Manhattan, Shelter Island, Little Rams Island, and the U.K., all of which now surround him in his dining room.
