We love that people come to us for all style profiles - we currently have projects that reflect traditional, transitional & modern design.  One fun project we are working on is for a couple transitioning from a larger home on Long Island to a new, smaller apartment.  They are now closer to the action in New York City and they want the style of the apartment to reflect their more modern lifestyle.  They are ditching all of their family home's traditional furniture and are now going for a more clean look with pops of colors.  Here are some of our ideas so far.

Option 1:

This Milo Baughman-esque sofa is a cool take on a classic piece.  The brass legs are expected on a chair, but interesting and different on a sofa.  We would pair it with a pop of color on velvet accent chairs and a statement light fixture.  Lucite pieces are perfect for a small apartment because their transparency give the allusion of space.   I love this look personally because it is modern without feeling cold.

Option 2:

The client likes a yellowish / mustard accent color which we don't use often because like orange, yellow is not one of our favorites to work with.  This option gives hints of yellow without it overwhelming the palette.  Grey's work well with a modern space and different shades of it also create warmth here.  This console is great for an apartment because it is small and thin.  We would probably add a banana plant in the corner of this option.  Also, maybe a pair of upholstered x-benches in a small scale yellow pattern if the client wants more yellow involved.  

Rugs and paint color are tbd on both.
