Murray Hill Co-op
This transformation began several days after the client moved into his new apartment with only five pieces of furniture – a desk, a bed, a collapsible table, a lawn chair and a side table used to prop up his soon to be enlarged TV.
The plan for this New York City, first-time buyer was a design that was low maintenance, reflected his young, laid-back lifestyle and was anything but a typical bachelor pad. By using a grey-toned, monochromatic color palette we created a masculine, warm and inviting environment that flowed throughout the one bedroom apartment. When selecting furniture, we emphasized characteristics such as easy care and efficiency that led us to purchase pieces such as a distressed coffee table that will continue to add charm as it ages, and a black-frosted, glass-top desk that provides a hard, durable work surface that will not mark and will easily wipe clean. The desk also incorporated key organizational elements such as a false wall to hide and organize all the electronic wires so the space will always look neat.
