Massachusetts, acts as a picture window. Before it, as if perched before a balcony, a long walnut
dining room table has sensuous lines that invite touching and sinuous chairs that invite sitting.
Gregory sourced the ensemble, as well as several other pieces in the town house, from the small
Italian furniture maker Ceccotti, a favorite of the owner’s.
To the left is a startling sight: a bright green regulation Ping-Pong table sits in the middle of a
handsome room paneled with floor-to-ceiling black cherry, much of it a figured type called “roped.”
The wood’s shimmering arcs, lit by recessed fixtures specified by consultants from Light Positive of
Marblehead, Massachusetts, add a fascinating depth to the room. The surprises — and games —
continue on the next floor, where the stunning river views are challenged by two astounding pieces
paneling of roped black cherry
gives the study a warm depth.
