In the living area, a daybed from Indonesia and armchairs—including two of his own slipcovered designs—make for easy seating for intimate entertaining and parties. “We’ll have drinks here and then head into the dining area.”
All hail the power of a pop of color. Though canary can work with other bold shades in moderation, it plays really well with blacks, whites, grays, and deep blues. Not ready to commit to a couch? Consider a smaller piece like a love seat or an armchair.

Decorator Vicente Wolf’s NYC loft
Polished wool curtains, perfect for shielding early-morning light, hang from the 10-foot-high ceilings. The floating bed, designed by Vicente, resides at a purposeful angle against a freestanding wall.
Emerald walls have the ability to swing from edgy and fun to formal and proper, depending on the types of pieces you fill the room with. Traditional-leaning pieces, like an antique sideboard, will tone down the color a bit, while modern, sleek pieces in bold hues will only up the drama. For the best of both worlds, go for a mix of styles.

In the media room and guest room—where Vicente starts and ends most of his days—a Burmese monk bench serves as a nightstand alongside black-and-white images of a hands. The tree photo above daybed is the only piece of Vicente’s work displayed in the apartment.
