Recalling a quote from FLLW– referencing a stair he designed being like a ribbon being thrown in the air; our new stair carriage in this apartment for a young couple was completely reconceived to suit the existing opening. The bronze and steel balustrade lightened the visual weight.

The charge from the owner and Decorator was to recreate detailing that would evoke the feeling of the original apartment. The beautiful decoration and carefully curated art modernized the interior and evoked a feeling of freshness within the classic framework.

The dining room cabinet is actually three cabinets. One central cabinet for linens and china and two flanking cabinets behind concealed doors.
One concealed door opens to reveal a fitted dry bar.
