The iconic statue of Columbus rises more than 75 feet atop a granite column in Manhattan's Columbus Circle. Designed by Italian sculptor Gaetano Russo in 1892, the statue was commissioned to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s first voyage to the Americas.
What do you get when you climb the 6 flights of stairs to view this art installation? A stylish, modern living room featuring casual groupings of sofas, chairs and coffee tables and modern amenities like a generous flat screen tv. Oh yes, and a 13 foot statue of Columbus himself, standing right in the middle of the room. He seems to fit right into the room, with its cheeky Toile wallpaper inspired by Nishi's memories of popular American culture and well stocked bookshelf.
Mickey, Marilyn and Elvis--love this toile!
