As for Brancusi where the base is indissociable of the sculpture to make a "whole"...

Just a thought:
You paring brick walls with metal floors and then adding plastic and glass decorative elements with plastic modern furniture. Aren't you afraid it will be too "cold"?
I always thought that it is fun to mix styles and have something eclectic.
Consider pieces from different eras and styles. May be vintage or antique furniture. If you go for a loungy look you might end up with a "retail" space rather than a "living" one.

Not big. I'm giving up the tub and just doing a glass shower so that I can have more space.

Picking out the stone for the kitchen and bathroom this afternoon.

Right on! Who needs tubs any way. I assume you bought this place right? Otherwise why would you make all these changes....
It might sounds obvious, but don't install one of those plastic shower basins and I advise against any marble floors in a bathroom. I believe ceramic/stone tiles make much better floors.

You mean it wouldn't be a good idea to have a slick polished marble for use on a floor that is constantly puddled with water?

Another reason would be:
Marble is porous and not resistant to agressive chemicals that are often used in bathrooms.

Overall the place sounds like it is going to be great. It is nice to see more people moving away from beige drearines when they want a modern place. In rethinking my first comment, he pieces you are starting with are a really good foundation to go in just about any direction.

I love those pillows! I think I might grab a couple when I'm in NYC next week!

I picked a really dark almost black slate for the counter tops so I think with the exposed brick and that this dark cobalt wine rack will sit nice up against a wall on the counter.

The bathroom is most like the one in the top right corner with those veins; but, a little lighter.

Here's my favorite bathroom by Adolf Loos. It has copper fixtures:
