An Eclectic House Full Of Collections. In 2005, when Mr. Wong bought the place from William Sofield, architect of the Gucci stores, its barrel-vaulted brick ceiling was covered in plaster. The two men share a personal trainer, Rob Morea, who is also, conveniently, a real estate broker. The apartment had been, variously, a sweat shop, a Yiddish theater and a porn theater. Mr. Sofield had given it his own particular stamp, with silk wallpaper and silver paint. In 2000, Nan Goldin photographed the loft for Elle Décor.
The actor B.D. Wong collects chiming clocks, vintage grease cans and old sewing drawers, among other things. David Masenheimer and Romain Frugé, actors/carpenters, designed this shelving unit for him, and built it from repurposed wood and Mr. Wong’s collection of sewing drawers and old yardsticks.
Mr. Wong’s collection of chiming clocks recently migrated from the floor to the stairwell, the colors of which were chosen by Eve Ashcraft, a paint consultant.
This bed belonged to Mr. Wong’s grandmother.
