City Living Done Right

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?
