The 19th-century English mahogany table is topped with an antique Chinese porcelain bowl; the front door, hardwood floors, and ceiling beams are original to the home. The chandelier is by Gaetano Sciolari, the ­window-seat cushion is in a Hines & Company fabric, and the throw pillow is in a Donghia fabric. The artwork is by Jack Levine.

We love the dark geometric-patterned wood floor at the foyer. A group of blue-and-white chinoisorie ginger jars and vases  on a traditional center table set the tone for the whole house.
