The Brooklyn Home:
Modern Havens in the City
A modern apartment in DUMBO offered us a blank slate for this complete renovation. The goal? Bring character to the space through art and furniture, and frame the unbeatable views of the downtown Manhattan skyline. Working closely with the owners, we sourced custom furniture and abstract art in an earth-toned palette that lended itself to their lifestyle.
The centerpiece of the main space is a dining table made by our Artist-in-Residence Fitzhugh Karol, who commissioned a foundry in Williamsburg to cast its forged bronze legs. Slate-gray Pietra Cardosa kitchen counters and white oak herringbone floors create a luxurious yet simple backdrop for the outdoor spaces and dramatic art installations throughout the space. Open shelving in both the kitchen and marble-lined bathroom lends a sense of openness and a casual energy, perfect for quiet nights in or hosting loved ones.
