When it comes to setting the stage for his home, funnyman Will Ferrell takes design very seriously. A glimpse inside his Manhattan Loft reveals just how serious he is about Mid-Century Modern. The West Village Loft was purchased by Ferrell and his wife, Viveca Paulin-Ferrell, for $4.2 million in 2010. One can only imagine what the same place is worth on today’s market, especially with the couple’s famous name and renovations.

Let’s talk interiors. The 2,800 square foot home is situated in a former Victorian Era printing factory. It had since been converted to a loft, with inglorious results, until Will Ferrell and his auctioneer wife came along. The couple chose architect Richard Perry and interior designer Shawn Henderson to work their magic on the space. Undoubtedly, Viveca Paulin-Ferrell brought her art and design expertise into the space.

The home is appointed with iconic mid-century modern furnishings. You’ll see Papa Bear chairs by Hans Wegner, a credenza by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, and a Poul Volther chair in original fabric just to name a few. Walls show the couple’s appreciation for modern art with Roy Lichtenstein prints and a tapestry inspired by Alexander Calder. Casegoods and tables are embellished with sculpture by Dal Fabbro, Scandinavian glassware and pottery, a nod to Viveca-Paulin-Ferrell’s native Sweden.

Get the look

You don’t have to be a superstar to achieve the same look. Even the Ferrell’s have prints of their favorite artists rather than originals. Papa Bear chairs, Eames chairs, Scandinavian glass and ceramics are readily attainable through local and online vintage dealers. The best way to find incredible vintage pieces is to first identify you design goal, make a list and begin your search. Compare condition, prices, shipping and soon enough you’ll be living like the Ferrells on YOUR budget!

Let’s go shopping

Hats off to the Ferrells and studios of Richard Perry and Shawn Henderson for creating a gorgeous, livable space. Emphasis on the livable… the Ferrells share this home with their three sons. This goes to show that fine design is for families too! Don’t shy away from buying the things you love because you think your children will destroy it. Introduce them to these objects, artists and designers at a young age. They will come to respect and protect. It all starts at home.
