FEATURES
Design for Living
BY WENDY GOODMAN

Guess Who's Coming to Lunch?
From the ornamental balcony to the boldface names lounging on leopard-skin chairs, jewelry mogul Kenneth Jay Lane's Park Avenue duplex is a hotbed of high style and high society. By Bob Morris.

California Dreaming
Designers Steven Charlton and Jeffrey Goodman's move from the West Coast required some adjustment. The solution? Their downtown apartment melds mellow modern with horizontal stripes and kid-friendly colors to make them forget (well, almost) the glass-walled hilltop house they left behind.

Chelsea Girl
Architect Robin Elmslie Osler's loft is a bold mix of pedigreed modern furniture passed down from her family and quirky art by her painter friends.

Townhouse Beautiful
Bill Blass designer Lars Nilsson turned an East Village townhouse into an impeccable showcase for his collection of fashion memorabilia -- and a cozy setting for tea, with his own homemade scones.

Less Is Morr
Jonathan Morr's apartment is exactly what you'd expect from the owner of restaurants like BondSt and Republic: hip, modern, and always ready for a party.

Michael's Uptown For Harlem historian Michael Henry Adams, bringing his passion for architecture and artifacts home to his 122nd Street floor-through yielded rich results.

Their titles -- Earl and Countess of Albemarle -- give away their sophisticated European lineage, but Rufus and Sally's bohemian m.o. is strictly Manhattan. A look at how the city's latest society darlings are living -- and living it up -- in Chelsea. By Amy Larocca.

GOTHAM
