This light and bright apartment features a second floor landing with a brown cowhide chaise lounge and floor-to-ceiling bookshelf that create the perfect reading nook. A tufted blue sofa is positioned next to a mirrored glass coffee table in a nearby sitting area, while large windows showcase sprawling New York City views.
The formal living room/parlor is one of the first impressions you get to make on your guests about what your personal style is and how you like to live at home. For the entertaining spaces in this home our client wanted chic, well edited rooms with simple palettes and lots of light. Their formal living room is exactly that with transitional furnishings and original artwork created by one of their daughters. The layering in this room is subtle but impactful. Metallic wallcovering defines the niches, sheer panels, a painted ceiling and an antique mirrored platform coffee table rest on a white silk rug. All of these carefully curated details have light-reflective properties. Editing does not equate to skimping.
Reclaimed wood posts attached to hefty round stones make for a unique, artistic coffee table. A rough-hewn entry table and mirror mimic the rustic features of the coffee table. Beach grass overflows out of a glass vase to soften the weathered wood elements.
A sleek glass-top coffee table adds contemporary flair to this traditional space. Table-top topiary, books and a mirrored table set provide a counterpoint to furniture in this transitional living room.
