The Showroom and Gallery Matter has designed a model apartment in a historic Brooklyn Heights hotel. The team worked with one of 29 condos inside the 12-storey building that once housed the Standish Arms Hotel, completed by local architect FS Lowe in 1903.
An apartment with 2 bedrooms where were used a mix of light tones and bold colors, chosen by the team to set the apartment apart from typical show spaces in new-build projects.
“A welcome contrast to the neutral model homes typically presented in today’s luxury buildings, Residence 3C at The Standish serves to delight the eyes and engage the senses with the use of bold colors and patterns as well as structural furniture pieces and home accessories,” said the team.
From the entrance, the master suite is located off the hall to the left, while the guest bedroom and bathroom are accessed separately further down on the right.
The loyal Coleman standing lamp is the ideal reading buddy to be near your couch or desk. It has a sober elegance and it’s possible to regulate its height and direction at any time. Simple and smart, this piece will last long.
The corridor ends up in a light-filled, open-plan space where you can find the living, kitchen and dining areas. In the floor were used wood and in the bathroom, they used similarly colored stone.
To furnish the apartment was used pieces from the collection produced by its own brand, including some from its newest designs shown in Milan earlier this year.
Standout pieces from other designers include a light with an orange-green glass shade by Bec Brittain in the master bedroom, and several sconces and an umbrella stand by Apparatus.
Boldly colored artworks that complement the palette of the furnishings.
“The design showroom sought to create a contemporary Brooklyn style and aesthetic, drawing inspiration from the building’s history and turn-of-the-century style,” the team said.
