Inside Marc Jacobs’s New York Townhouse

The world-renowned fashion designer Marc Jacobs open the doors of his New York townhouse. Marc Jacobs purchased the four-story townhouse in the West Village of New York in 2009. He has since furnished the luxury home with unique artwork, collectibles, and of course, designer furniture.

“I’m not big on having a particular concept or look,” Jacobs says in response to a query about the aesthetic sensibility of his home. “I just want to live with things I genuinely love—great Art Deco furniture, pieces from the ’70s, and contemporary art. But I didn’t want the house to feel like a pristine gallery or a Deco stage set—just something smart, sharp, and comfortable.”

Marc Jacobs worked with diverse interior designers, such as Thad Hayes, John Gachot of Gachot Studios, and Paul Fortune, in order to furnish his home. According to sources, he wasn’t very easy to cooperate with. “One day Marc announced that he’d bought a giant sculpture of Dopey from Paul McCarthy’s ‘White Snow’ series. The only place we could park it was in the television room, which was basically finished at that point. ‘So we closed the street and craned the thing in through the back. You do what you have to do,’ he said.

An enthusiastic design freak who controls auction houses and sellers around the globe, Marc Jacobs will go to high lengths to get exactly what he desires. Consider the set of bronze monkeys by François-Xavier Lalanne that balance the designer’s bedroom. “I saw them in a picture in Vogue, and I became fixated. I had to have them,” Jacobs remembers. “I called Paul Kasmin Gallery, I called Sotheby’s, and eventually I called Jane Holzer. She introduced me to the Lalannes in Paris, and she found me the monkeys.”
