An expanse of wenge wood plays with the recesses in the drywall to create a voluminous and open airy space with grand geometric elements. Eye-catching pendant lights, hung at assorted heights to create a mobile-like chandelier, are prominent centerpieces hung over assorted seating, from sofas and chairs to a long, leather bench around a chic glass coffee table, ideal for casual conversation or quiet reflection in this peaceful living environment.
A black and white kitchen opens to contemporary sitting and breakfast areas that incorporate colorful accents and varying textures. White waterfall marble counters cover the island’s black cabinetry, as glass pendants hang above. In the sitting area, velvet chairs in a deep cobalt color, accented by pillows with bold geometric prints, sit in front of a trio of large windows. A smooth lucite coffee table is topped with shaggy, sheep’s wool, and is anchored by a neutral rug. Mirrored panels in the nook reflect the room’s natural light, and the white table and mid-century dining chairs add subtle modern touches to the classic space.
The vision for the space was to create a livable, functional space for the homeowners. Their love for modern design paired perfectly with the quaint cottage architecture and geography of the home. By removing the one wall in the space that used to define the kitchen, the designers were able to open the floor plan up and maximize the square footage and natural lighting. The living area features a comfy gray sectional paired with modern black chairs and coffee table. A geometric rug anchors the space and adds interest and dimension.
A sophisticated luxury salon designed by Drake/Anderson for the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House brings together classicism and modernism wrapped in saffron, umber and ocher hues. The contemporary room has a crystal beaded and sequined chandelier, an upholstered velvet sofa in ocher and 19th century chairs covered with geometric fabric. The coffee tables are asymmetrical with brass and tiger’s eye gemstone. Statement pieces include abstract art and a bronze sculpture. The room opens to a mirrored bar.
