44 F rom the clients' own coffers is a prized 1904 Hamburg Steinway piano, which is now in the living area. In the entryway is an antique Greek chest, acquired from James Powell Antiques in Austin, which once belonged to London art critic David Sylvester, the father of contemporary artist Cecily Brown. Other family favorites include African antiques such as a large Senufo rhythm pounder, and a bull sculpture by Charles Umlauf, which was a gift from the sons to their father. "My husband and I love how this house turned out," the wife says. Still, we have to ask: Will the itch to move and redo another house return? Thirtieth time's a charm, it appears. "This was finally the right modern house," she says. "It's so beautifully constructed, and we had an exceptional designer. Jan and I clicked immediately. I'd done a pretty good job doing our houses myself, but a talented homeowner is never as good as a talented interior designer." In the living room, a Marilyn sofa from Jan Showers Collection. Bronze-base coffee table, circa 1950, by Maison Jansen. Italian velvet chair, circa 1960. Master bath with a view. In the dining room, a Murano glass chandelier over a custom dining table by Jan Showers & Associates. John Boone Florence dining chairs.
