Schwartz's much loved gold bracelets were created by an unknown artist/architect. Laser-cut pearls from Grange Hall. THERE'S NOT ONE PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT WASN'T HERE 20 YEARS AGO WHEN THE HOUSE WAS BUILT." " acquired two decades earlier that have stood the test of time — not to mention, three kids and two Labrador retrievers. "There's not one piece of furniture that wasn't here 20 years ago when the house was built. It's simple, clean and architectural, much like how I dress. I don't want my clothes to wear me," says Cindy, who has a soft spot for Valentino and Oscar de la Renta. "Likewise, I don't want furnishings that scream, 'Look at me!'" The home's furniture may not compete for attention, but it certainly turns heads, from a pair of original Knoll Pfister sofas — one in leather, one upholstered — and '70s-era Saporiti Italia chairs and master bed, to sets of vintage Mies van der Rohe Barcelona stools, Knoll MR armchairs and Saarinen tables. "I admire people who can mix it up better than I have — this house certainly could benefit from that — but when the furniture is so simple and stays the same, it allows me to change the art very easily," Cindy says. Still, she's always intended to buy a rug for the living room "to establish it as a seating area," she says. But in 20 years, it hasn't happened. Spoken like the self-admitted art addict she is, she admits, "There is always another piece of art to buy." Chic peek. See more stunning interiors at — Cindy Schwartz
