Six Wives.

While in New York City recently, I happened to stumble upon the Tribeca Summit Loft Condominiums on Greenwich Street. Taking place in two duplex penthouses inside the building is Metropolitan Home's Showtime House. The dining room and terrace inspired by Showtime's award-winning original series 'The Tudors' features one of my favorite details from the house. Designers Piero Lissoni and Nicoletta Canesi created dining chairs and pillows with images of the six wives of Henry VIII. Poor beheaded Anne Boleyn's chair is splashed with red. For additional information and photographs, check out the December 2009 issue of Metropolitan Home magazine.
