Inson Wood branding The Waterfall Mansion: Picasso, Chagall, Ferrari, and Ivanka Trump, Baby!

Inson Wood selected a collectible Ferrari California to make his grand entrance as part of the overall experience - one of 3 available in midnight blue. Inson insisted on blue as the color of nature - blue water and blue skies.  The Waterfall Mansion is aptly named as it is the largest indoor Waterfall in New York City.

Collecting, Dealing and making art has always been a passion for Inson Wood, coming from a line of family members who heavily collected art on one side and on the other side  - created art at the highest level which has been shown around the world in national museums.

Inson Wood has become known for having parties that people actually want to go to - to keep things engaging he has a no texting policy and cel phone calls must be taken outside.  "God knows I have broken all the rules of social etiquette, but if you go to a party - go to have fun and meet new people, be outlandish, make new friends, exchange ideas...in todays world a little eye contact can go a long way - that can't  happen when you're texting."


Inson Wood loves throwing a diverse party inviting some downtown LES and Dumbo brilliance with young artists, writers, poets including talent such as Jimmy Fallons premier joke writer.  Downtown Ace-Soho-Tribeca Partnership founder, Mega Art Collector and Philanthropist,  Henry Buhl and his entourage of talented artists and writers also attended.  "I love mixing people of all ages and economic backgrounds, inviting emerging artists, intellectuals, tech startup creators,  with established Gallery Owners, Museum Board Trustees, Angel Investors and Ceo's - the more colorful the better. One never knows what can happen when great minds come together...that's what I love about New York City" - Inson Wood

Inson Wood chose a striking Doris Leslie Blau Rug in aqua to compliment the Chagall in the background.

One of Inson Wood's signature moves is the use of 100 year old Gracie wall paper, even in modern settings. " The wall itself should be a work of art...not just the painting or sculpture that goes in front of it." An Edwina Sandys sculpture in the foreground and 3 very exceptional Picassos in the background.
