Tribal treasures

In a Weston home, interior design that incorporates a prized collection.

In designing this Weston home’s interior, Jan Luchetti faced an intriguing challenge: to choose furnishings and colors that complemented the owner’s substantial collection of tribal artifacts. Most of it relates to the Plains Indians and dates to the 1870s, but it includes some pieces from Amazon tribes, as well as Asian works. Luchetti selected a neutral palette that wouldn’t compete with the art and the furniture, which has a masculine sensibility without overdoing it — it was important that the owner’s two daughters feel comfortable in their dad’s house. The Weston-based designer was also careful not to overload any room with native artifacts — their presence is intriguing rather than heavy-handed.
