Nothing is worse than a home that is too perfect and done. Architectural Digest has selected the place for this month issue, and we decided to share it with you. This apartment is in a lovingly preserved 1930s building and is the very model of perfect and done. Enjoy!

It’s simply the home of a guy who says, “I like it as clean and as uncluttered as possible” and who has no trouble getting rid of things.

Browne grew up in an archetypal Colonial house in Allentown, Pennsylvania, smack in the middle of seven brothers and sisters, all of whom were athletic. He is the only artist in the bunch; the rest are doctors and lawyers. At first he wanted to be an actor, so he moved to Los Angeles. “I was horrible,” he says, laughing. He came to New York in 1997, got a job working in sales for Giorgio Armani, and was eventually tapped by Ralph Lauren to design clothes for Club Monaco, which Lauren’s company had recently purchased. But Browne soon started getting noticed for his own very particular style: a vision of abbreviated tailoring and twisted classic haberdashery so youthful and dependent on a trim, fit form that one suspects it has its roots in Thom Browne’s school days.

In the bedroom Gio Ponti tables flank an Adnet bed that is unusually narrow and low to the ground; its steel-tone blankets are crossed by a red, white, and blue stripe that echoes the grosgrain trim that is a hallmark of Browne’s label. (His attachment to the tricolor ribbon is happenstance, he says—he saw it in a shop and it just appealed to him.) To the side, a wood valet supports a single striped gray jacket, hanging smartly at attention.

When it comes to his home furnishings, that same rigor, that same commitment to witty traditionalism, is everywhere apparent. “I won’t buy something unless it’s exactly what I want. I don’t buy things just to ‘get it done,’” Browne explains.
