In this Pacific Heights home, salvaged industrial objects are combined with an important modern art collection. To complement works by Rodin, Monet, Henry Moore, Chagall, Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas, we searched for unique found objects with strong, sculptural qualities to balance the art. Consoles made from 19th century machinery parts hold their own with sculptures by Bruce Nauman, Henry Moore and Rodin. A Monet self-portrait in the rich oxblood colored library is viewed with an old iron cobbler's table. The designer and client share an appreciation of sculptural form without regard to cost or provenance. “It doesn’t matter to me if something came from an old factory or the finest gallery,” states Marzo. “There is a profound joy in finding beauty in unexpected places.”
