The dining room is an artful remix of styles and eras: traditional crystal chandelier from David Sutherland, Damien Hirst’s Ferrocene (household gloss on canvas, 2008) and Georgian-style pedestal table of Honduran mahogany from Arthur Brett (London). But the true stars of the room are the suave chairs from Dean Martin’s Palm Springs home — and don’t you wish they could talk.

Fronting the bookcase is a photo of Jasper Johns by Dennis Hopper. Tumbling Rings side tables from Mecox Gardens.

Damien Hirst’s iconic Psalm 127: Nisi Dominus — butterflies and household gloss on canvas, 2008 — hangs above a vintage prayer bench covered in pearlescent velvet. Stubbs found the François Malbreil painting, Jeune Homme aux lunettes vertes (1981), at a Paris art market.
