Another beauty from this month’s Interior Design Magazine. For an empty nesters’ apartment in Manhattan, Steven Learner Studio designed a 4,800 square foot space in a TrBeCa building. I am absolutely in love with this custom screen.
Often when couples convert from suburban lifestyles to city living the tendency can be to go ultra-modern and austere. The results can be cold and unfriendly. What the designer and clients have managed to achieve here is a wonderful balance and juxtaposition of cool lava stone floors (FABULOUS), contrasted with warm teak wood paneling (so retro), and mid-century furniture with custom upholstery that results in a welcoming space. The addition of curves and soft shapes throughout really adds a welcoming, organic vibe to the space.
I think the custom steel circle and glass divider is genius. Do you?
