When I first saw this living room belonging to stylist John Barrett, I assumed it was in California because of the warm light and garden view. To learn that it is in fact a small Greenwich Village apartment "at the bottom of an airshaft" with "zero natural sunlight" was a surprise. Supporting the illusion of bright and open space is a sparkling vintage Pace Collection cocktail table and contemporary artwork by James Narres, Joe Gafney and Lucian Freud (clockwise from top).
