New York Apartment – Private Residence
A lot of our work at Cornish Interiors is for repeat customers and we were delighted when a former client tasked us with renovating this classic loft apartment in Soho. We worked with New York based architects Messana O'Rorke to transform a warehouse space in to a modern pied-à-terre for a design focused client.
We sourced furniture from the UK and Europe as well as the USA and a large part of the project was coordinating shipping and installation of these items, managing logistics and insuring attention to detail so pieces arrived in perfect condition on site.
The apartment was fitted with Dinesen Douglas fir flooring which bought a natural warmth to balance the industrial feel of the space, large rugs were bespoke made to frame the various seating areas, and books were sourced and coordinated to add pops of colour to the work space in the main open plan area.
We worked with Italian kitchen designers Boffi to design a striking urban looking space for cooking and entertaining, with a hanging gantry and rough sawn dining height bar, metal finish to cabinetry and natural stone work surface.
The original fireplace was made a feature with a floor to ceiling distressed metal surround and log display area, creating a great textured backdrop for soft furnishings and furniture in the living space.
Bathrooms were designed to look industrial with cog like wheel handles to brass-ware, softened with natural stone tiles and concealed lighting. Bedrooms by contrast were designed as havens, with bespoke wrap around linen headboards, soft lighting and concealed dressing areas.
We finished the apartment by sourcing a mix of vintage and modern accessories, books and objects to dress the space, keeping the space minimal and cool while making sure home comforts and practicalities are still on hand.
