Alex Katz home and studio.

"The poured-acrylic floor is vaguely evocative of a 1970s basement rec room. The furniture—what there is of it—looks haute thrift shop: a minimalist leather sofa teamed with another of ornately carved wood with velvet upholstery. The telephones are not only corded, they’re rotary. The quirkiness is anything but a retro pose, however; Alex Katz has been living and working in this cavernous top-floor loft in the heart of SoHo since 1968.”
