The craziest apartment in ManhattanApr 07 2010

The Selby has some shots of Cindy Gallop's apartment, which has to be one of most personality-drenched living spaces I've seen since Martha Stewart's house. (Not that I've seen Martha Stewart's house. But I can imagine.) Here is, for example, Gallop's Gucci chainsaw:

There is also a video tour on Vimeo and a 2006 New York magazine article about how Gallop turned a former YMCA locker room into her "ultimate bachelorette pad".

She had a specific vision for her new home. "I was looking for something dramatic," she says. So she told her designer, Stefan Boublil of the Apartment, a creative agency in Soho, "When night falls, I want to feel like I'm in a bar in Shanghai."
