The owners of this home hoped to show off their collections, so designers made the collector's items the focal points in the space. The room's statues are placed in prominent positions, two in front of windows to allow light to shine directly on them, and two on either corner of the fireplace at the front of the room. The art collection, framed in black and hung on white walls, is also very prominent in the space.
