The Central Lounge
The living area mixes seventies and eighties pieces, including a 1985 Roche Bobois leather sectional couch and ottoman, but guests also perch along the black-lacquered apartment-long shelf.

The Kitchen
Christiansen collected these porcelain figures of revolutionaries from all over the world, but mostly from China, then lacquered them red.

The Dining Area
The table-and-chair set is one of only five ever made; its chairs collapse to fit inside the table. Christiansen painted the massive chandelier, from Talisman in London, red. Recent clients of his company Chandlier Creative include Bergdorf Goodman, Target, Guerlain, Sephora, Chandon, and Orient Express.

The Sleeping Space
Though partyers are welcome to lounge on the Phyllis Morris bed, the fish tank acts as a transparent divider between it and the main seating area.

The View
Christiensen built window ledges that hold pots of conifers and Japanese maples. He uses them instead of curtains to obscure the outside world.

The Gallery
His artwork can be rotated easily because it leans atop the black-lacquer and white-lacquer shelves, instead of hanging on the walls.
