The term “unique space” might not even do justice to the home featured in this week’s departure from all things DC real estate.
New York Magazine recently profiled the live-work-play space of Jon Sherman, founder of the wall covering company Flavor Paper. Located in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood (this writer’s old stomping ground), the four-level building functions as Sherman’s home, his workshop and an entertainment venue when he is in the mood.
The first floor of the building is where Sherman and a band of employees (some of who live with him) produce hand-screened wall coverings for the likes of Lenny Kravitz on long vacuum tables. The upper levels of the building, however, are where the action/magic happens. In addition to a couple large living spaces, there is a DJ booth with 2,000 records, a roof deck with a seating area and large garden, and a bedroom with a levitating bed.
Our favorite aspect of the home, however, is a 24-foot piece of limestone that starts out as a floor and ends up as the counter. More photos below.
