In the living room of accessories designer William Frawley’s Manhattan apartment, a collection of nude studies hangs above a pair of 1970s English club chairs; an ottoman holds ostrich eggs found on eBay, and a 19th-century steer-horn chair is upholstered in a vintage cheetah coat. Photography-studio lamps from the ’50s are used throughout; the walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Atrium White, and the carpet tiles are from Flor.

The dining area, which doubles as a work space, features 1920s mahogany Chippendale-style chairs and polished-steel Parsons tables; the mirror is from the ’40s.

A Chinese screen separates the living area from the kitchen; the sofa is 1970s English, and the pillows are covered in a zebra-pattern needlepoint and sheepskin.

A rosewood table holds a 1940s sculpture and orange-lacquer trays by Jonathan Adler; the ’70s café chairs are upholstered in Moroccan leather, and the window blinds are from the Shade Store.

In the bedroom, the photograph of a rib cage by an unknown artist once belonged to a San Francisco museum; the Knoll stool has a custom-made zebra sling, a 19th-century table from Aero Studios is topped with a wood vase from Mantiques Modern, and the Akari paper lamp is by Isamu Noguchi.
