In a New York home, the living room's banquettes flank a mantel with a combed faux finish by Dean Barger. "We don't do animal prints often," designer Anne Maxwell Foster says of the pillows. "But Scalamandré's Tigre velvet is so luxe and warm, it worked here." The 1876 chair is by George Jacob Hunzinger. A Bunny Williams for Dash & Albert rug was cut and trimmed to fit around the hearth.
