The Chelsea building was originally a factory circa 1900. The owner's second floor loft once served as the showroom with impressive 13 feet ceilings. A beloved neighbor who once lived across the way, moved to England and offered his apartment to purchase. A gut renovation ensued as both spaces were combined to create over 4000 square feet of space. Sleeping quarters which had once been at the front were moved to the back and the kitchen was expanded and rotated. Oak plank floors were installed, old dry wall were stripped away to expose massive steel beam columns and patinaed brick walls were unearthed. The furnishings were selected with a growing family in mind using relaxed Scandinavian furniture and easy to clean upholstery. The vintage pottery and art were found at various auctions. Le Corbusier inspired the color palette used in the custom bookshelves.
