The Streisand collection

After viewing a BBC drama, Streisand decided to do a blue paneled room in her current Malibu residence. There was just one hitch: The George Smith sofa and chairs, which she had reupholstered in $200-a-yard red silk velvet and mustard fringe trim. "I realized that the red was wrong," she says ruefully. "This set is divine, so comfortable; I wish I had a place for it."Courtesy of Barbra Streisand
