This apartment is in a beautiful landmarked building in the Wall Street area. During its renovation, the designers strived for a modern feel but also wanted to pay homage to the Old World charm of the original building elements: massive windows, ornate ironwork furnaces and dark wood floors. The previously enclosed kitchen was opened up and the materials chosen to highlight the feel of old New York: reclaimed brick on the walls, steel countertops and backsplash, even the pendants have the look of gas lights. Paint: Benjamin Moore Dove Wing, Pendants: Remains Lighting Eugene, Brick: Brick It Used NY.
Indigo has a centuries old history in Africa. In Nigeria alone, you can find the world’s oldest dye pits, where traditional indigo dyeing is still being practiced today. Relief indigo prints were a strong part of commerce, resulting in some of the earliest exports from African countries. Today, Indigo still has a place in the world of exports. The stunning blue shade that results from plant-based dyes from the indigofera and lonchocarpus cyanescens plant varieties is an evocative one. And it looks stunning on this Indigo Butterfly Chair (http://www.osxnasozi.com/product/indigo-gold-butterfly-chair) from xnasozi. A mid-century modern piece where a West African art form helps to make a modern, cultural statement.
