Designer Thomas Jayne convinced a Philadelphia-area couple to line their living room walls in a chocolate-brown Holland & Sherry cotton, providing a distinctive backdrop for the large Chuck Close portrait Bill and other artworks, including a tabletop sculpture by Tony Smith; the sofa is upholstered in a Rogers & Goffigon fabric, and the pillows are covered in a Clarence House silk.
