Over a decade ago famed hairstylist Sally Hershberger came to New York City from Hollywood, destined to move up, up, up in her career, ultimately becoming the first stylist in New York to charge $600 for a haircut (it’s now $800). And just as quickly, Hershberger went from renting in the West Village to owning an Art Deco penthouse in Manhattan by renowned developers Bing & Bing, with homes in Los Angeles and the Hamptons as well. The always amazing Elle Decor snapped Hershberger’s Manhattan penthouse, which was designed by architect Brad Floyd and decorated by Joe D’Urso.
The painting is by Joseph La Piana and the light fixture is by Verner Panton. The Arne Jacobsen Egg chair, Hans J. Wegner dining chairs, and Edward Wormley dining table are all vintage pieces that were found at Wyeth.
I found this one of the most interesting areas of the house: Photographs are displayed opposite a Verner Panton mirror; a rock-crystal sculpture sits atop a Joe D’Urso-designed steel pedestal.
A Herb Ritts photograph of the Dalai Lama’s hands is centered over the bed. The vintage bench is from Brenda Antin, and the cowhide rug is from ABC Carpet & Home.
