Back in late October of 2007, Your Mama followed up on a report by Max Abelson in the NY Observer about indie movie high priestess Parker Posey’s East Village apartment being sold. The top floor 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom apartment located in a lovely landmark townhouse on East 10th Street was on the market for $1,175,000 and by all accounts attracted heaps and scores of interested buyers.
Certainly the other famous residents of the purdy and well located building–Smashing Pumpkins’ James Iha and Miz Posey’s indie film grasshopper Chloë Sevigny–helped scare up ready, willing and able buyers eager to shell out well over a million clams to climb three or four flights of stairs in a non-doorman building.
Today, thanks to generous assistance from Joan of Arc, Your Mama offers the children a few more photos over which to drool and feast your celebrity home starved eyeballs. Note the above photographs have slight furniture and rug variations to the image(s) that were included on the real estate listing, so Your Mama imagines that the delightful Miz Posey had her decorator Rafael de Cárdenas come by periodically to mix things up.
Do the children notice that swirly gold side table thing? We. Love. It. And we’d bet one of our long bodied bitches Linda or Beverly that it’s just some cheap gold spray paint from the hardware store too, which makes it even better. Be assured that come spring weather Your Mama will be out in the backyard of our beach house carving up a stump and spray painting it gold to add a bit of glitz and glamor to one of the guest rooms.
Here’s what we said about Miz Posey’s former abode previously, and we stand buy it:
“Your Mama is very pleased and impressed with Miz Posey’s funky downtown decor. It looks like a pleasant and well curated mish-mash of items from the Avenue A flea, Las Venus (the old and wacky Las Venus on Ludlow Street and not the mid-century modern outpost), and any number of assorted thrift shops located in church basements around lower Manhattan. I don’t care what anyone says, that gnarled wood coffee table is flawless, even if it is murder on the chins after a few drinky-poos at Parker’s place.”
Your Mama has not found evidence of this property transferring ownership yet, so we don’t know how much it sold for or who purchased it…so don’t even ask.
Wherever Miz Posey and her collection of second-hand furniture has landed, Your Mama wishes her all best.
