A Colorful Living Room by Reunion Goods & Services and Fogarty Finger Architecture

 

AN ICON…

of Manhattan’s midtown landscape, The Osborne at 205 W 57th Street was built by Thomas Osborne between 1883 and 1906 and designed by James Ware for a wealthy clientele. Over 135 years later the property’s spacious interiors, historical architecture, and prime location render it as desirable as ever and a pretty perfect home for a fortunate family of four. To assist in bringing their 2,700 square foot apartment into the 21st century, the new owners tapped the local expertise of Reunion Goods & Services and Fogarty Finger Architecture to highlight the apartment’s innate good bones while infusing its space with a sophisticated sense of child-friendly chic. The results are equal parts stunning and unexpected in all the right ways…

IN THE…

living room, the design team kept things light and airy – skipping window treatments and opting for a subtle tone on tone paint scheme to emphasize architectural detail. A pastel Ligne Roset Pumpkin sofa and vintage Chiclet chairs create a kid friendly vibe while more precious pieces like a limited edition Julie Pfligersdorffer light and and Sky Series Eric Cahan photo bring a dose of design gravitas. An adjacent dining room offers an opportunity to get extra playful with graphic wallpaper, felt chairs, and a chunky resin table.

THE NEW…

classic-meets-contemporary kitchen centers around a zinc-top island inspired by early 20th century bars while antique fireplace tiles inspire a pop of blue in the form of a new La Cornue stove and floor tile detail. The rest of the kitchen floor is a replica of the original parquet that’s still intact in the foyer.

A SMALL FOYER…

serves as the connecting point between the three main public spaces while simultaneously serving as a microcosm of the renovation as a whole – a fresh combination of meticulously restored architecture, textural bursts of color, and playful vintage contemporary pieces.

POPS OF COLOR…

set against a crisp backdrop of white continue through to the children’s quarters, while the master bath settles on a more subdued monochrome – echoing the home’s storied past in shades of white marble, blackened metal, and polished nickel. From the candy colored furnishings in the living room to the ultra long trough sink in the master suite… this century-plus-old property still has it in spades. Swoon.
