Name dropping…marcel breuer, poul kjaerholm , jean prouvé jesus and mary! Oh my…but if you can’t get the real thing, going to treasure marts and second hand shops, if you will, you might be able to put this together ‘snap’! I love this room a lot. This is a fun way to put together an apartment.

Asher Israelow and Jamie Goldenberg are a creative couple based in New York City’s West Village. Asher is an architectural and furniture designer working out of Red Hook, Brooklyn, and Jamie is a photo editor for Bloomberg’s Businessweek. Their home is a collection of objects, both handmade and admired. They have many designer and artist friends, so most of their furniture, ceramics, lighting and artwork have a personal history. Thanks, Asher and Jamie, and thanks to Chris Sanders for the great images!— Anne

We love having friends over for meals, so a big dining table is necessary. The chairs are my all-time favorites, designed by Charlotte Perriand for Les Arcs ski lodge. On the back wall is a painting by James Cogbill, a school friend and fellow collaborator.

Classic and clean, a look I can always live with.  Fine art always adds a finishing touch, along with a very special rug.

Apartment On Oscar Freire Str. in São Paulo by Felipe Hess

 

Grid – Designed by Komplot for Nola.

This chair makes a statement where a little ‘wow’ is needed.   It doubles up as a functional piece and sculptural form.

Modern vintage works here with a fresh, solid colored new rug, light floors, new pillows and freshly painted walls and floors.  This is great!  I especially love the way the art is displayed.   Hanging a collection can be tricky, and here it is treated centering the three main paintings, then using the top edges of the bottom row and the bottom edges of the top row to create a cohesive look.
