Snakeskin Bathroom Watch

From the New Yorker's profile of Coach executive director Reed Krakoff: This description of his East 70th Street townhouse. "When you enter the living room, you are confronted with an Alexander Calder mobile floating above the mantelpiece, a massive black Louise Nevelson sculpture along one wall, a bronze Jean Arp parked on an end table, and, underfoot, two-hundred-year-old floorboards from France. The ground-floor bathroom is covered entirely in golden snakeskin and contains a spheroid toilet more stunning than anything the vast majority of the population will ever own." No wonder he wanted $52M for the place. [NYer via The Cut]
