Arc of light
details of wood and leather handles
This apartment was featured in the New York Times home and garden section over the weekend. I found myself staring at the photos looking at the seamless flow of space and the soft light reflected from the materials. It is a space that is lined with 18" wide whitewashed fir, it covers the floor, the built in cupboards, the bed, the dining table and bench. The walls are Venetian plaster and swathes of linen are used for the windows and dressing the bed. An item that delighted me was seeing the arc of light over the dining table by Vibia Lighting, a choice by the architect because there wasn't room for recessed lighting.
The architect Rick Joy designed this pied-à-terre for his client. His choice of materials, the whitewashed fir, linen, leather, steel, denim are like a symphony.
