The principal of Wiss Design wanted to create a space for intimate dinner parties and warm social gatherings in this apartment. A traditional Tajik suzani wedding blanket served as the main source of inspiration – its black/ brown and sangria red envelop different rooms, and the pattern is echoed in the main hallway.
Walls painted in rich Dragon’s Breath makes the living room feel formal and yet warm. A unique Droog chandelier offers a contemporary take on early single-bulb cord lights. Tall sconces provide a modern twist on standing floor lamps in the dining room, where a bold glass table is both airy and substantial. A chandelier of black Murano glass complements and contrasts the table’s strong linear aspects.
Salon walls in both geometric and freeform layouts create visual maps that share the designer’s life – showcasing travels, gifts, and things that inspire. Throughout the apartment, traditional Victorian woodwork is honored and highlighted in crisp white.
After helping clients to create their ideal look, this apartment enabled the designer to come home to a space that was distinctly personal and comfortable – much like the traditional handcrafted bed covering that inspired it.
