Industrial Open Floor Plan Co-op, Beacon NY
We were hired to stage this gorgeous, light-filled open plan co-op by the real estate developer. We decided that the decidedly rugged industrial finished used in the construction, including live edge wood, vintage wood beams and polished concrete floors, called for some warmth and playfulness.
All upholstered furniture was warm, comfortable washable velvet, in an array of jewel tones that highlighted the grey wood and icy blue grey walls – sapphire blue, evergreen, citrine and chartreuse. We played up the warmth of the décor with brass accents and lamps; and emphasized the light, open space quality with additional furnishings of glass and Lucite.
Colorful art glass, soft green glazed pottery and minimalist artwork completed the sophisticated but accessible feel of the apartment. We kept the apartment staged for several months – until every stick of furniture, rug, picture and object sold right out from under the place!
