A dazzling collection of ancient and contemporary art
Villa Yin fuses elements of classic Thai design with a dazzling collection of ancient and contemporary art, including 14th and 15th century Thai Buddhas, ancient Burmese gongs, and modern works by artists Xiu Ciu Wen and David LaChapelle. Captivating interiors are adorned with antiques from across Asia and a daring, carefully curated art collection featuring pieces as diverse as the instantly recognizable pop art of Andy Warhol to the compelling human struggles depicted by contemporary Chinese artist Shi Lifeng.
In every corner there is something unique
to see, to touch, to enjoy
The living room is decorated with a Ciu Xiuwen photo called “Angel No. 5” and “Wanted Dog,” a pair of bull terrier sculptures, one jet black and one gold, by the European artist Aurele. Suspended from the very high ceiling is a Sharon Marston contemporary chandelier; a cascade of fibre-optic filaments with red and yellow accents. In the dining room is a Zhu Yi Yong painting, “No. 10,” a smiling child making a cat’s cradle out of red string. In the master bedroom, the headboard is a four foot tall triangle shaped Thai wood carving dating to the 18th or 19th century.
