We recently transformed our client’s blank slate apartment into a modern penthouse oasis befitting of the top floor views he enjoys. Our client’s tastes are a cohesive mix of both classic modern and contemporary influences, unmistakably clean lined with a focus on highlighting the natural qualities of the materials used. We aimed to achieve a modern look using a combination of our renowned vendors, including Thayer Coggin and Copeland Furniture.
The Roxy Swivel-Tilt Tub Chair [bottom left] built by Thayer Coggin in the company’s High Point, NC factory. This chair is a modern classic piece to the living room, especially so when the Crypton-colored fabric is rich and eye-catching. Originally designed for Thayer Coggin by iconic mid-century modern designer Milo Baughman in the 1960's, this piece highlights Baughman's unflinching commitment to the mid-century design principle that form follows function. Thayer's ongoing production of Baughman's original designs allows customers to own a piece of design history that also has the advantage of modern technological advances in manufacturing and new and exciting fabrics. The Roxy sits nicely beside Thayer Coggin’s Drop In Sectional in brushed bronze.
In the dining room our client went with a round Audrey dining table and Estelle chairs from the wonderful woodworking studio Copeland Furniture out of Vermont. The set hints at the Scandinavian and Shaker design movements that serve as inspiration for Copeland's entirely unique pieces. The company's spectacular and ornament-free designs direct focus to the natural beauty of the prime cherry, walnut and maple wood they build their pieces in. The naturally-stained cherry used in the home keeps the space light and airy.
This Brookline Mission Island coated in Ashland Slate paint may normally settle in the kitchen, but its casters allow our client to easily move it to the living room for family and guests. The base is made of brown maple, and the top is made of hard maple.
This Henry Floor Lamp in dark smoke finish by Hubbardton Forge has an adjustable swing arm. Handcrafted by skilled artisans, it is constructed with brass rivets and spun metal shade. Its soft gold accent works well with the leathered armchair.
