When photographer David LaChappelle listed his Chelsea co-op back in July, we were surprised by the not at all over-the-top interiors of the one-bedroom apartment. Considering LaChappelle's work—surrealist, imbued with neon colors and absolutely bonkers themes—the fact that he owned such a traditional pad was unexpected, to say the least. But clearly a buyer was feeling the home's traditional vibe: According to the New York Observer, the apartment recently sold for its full asking price of $2.46 million. The parlor-level apartment has some rather lovely features, including three fireplaces, a marble kitchen, and a porch. And it netted LaChappelle a profit: He originally bought the place in 2011 for $1.47 million.
