With a mix of patterns and furniture styles Alexand manages to create a space that is warm,welcoming and exudes confidence. His rooms are polished and eclectic and I would certainly not mind being invited to kick off my shoes and stay a while, just talking about anything and everything. There is so much detail in this room , detail that gives you the sense that every piece on display has sentimental value and meaning. Everywhere there are signs that these spaces are being used, I asked Alexand about this and he said ,”…with all the spaces I do. I like to try and achieve realism and realism come in the small tiny details, I like to think them as more then “details” more like… “Signs of life” little cappuccinos around, half read books and such”.
I am a huge fan of re-purposed furniture, Britain Knave and Editorial Clarity are masters at it and I can also add Alexand to that list. I was amazed at how he was able to transform this bar cart and mirror into an entirely new product.
This door is everything and according to Alexand “… a lot of fabulous brownstones and high rises in NY have been chopped up to make smaller, but still very fabulous apartments. So that is my justification for having such a elegant entrance to such a rather small apartment”
