New York Apartment
The designer David Scott created a welcoming vibe in this New York Apartment using handmade Nordic furnishings, distinctive textiles, and works by women artists. Join NYDA and discover everything about this light and spacious sky-high apartment.
Like a sculptor molding clay, the New York-based designer deftly transforms spaces to suit his clients’ deepest needs and desires. With a shiny, New York high-rise at hand, Scott and design director Jim Fairfax set out to achieve an unexpected sense of snugness, serenity, and understated luxury 64 floors above Midtown East.
His embrace of hygge was sparked by the home-owning couple’s travels to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, and Helsinki, where they became enamored with Scandinavian design.
The far end of the living room features an elegant collection of vintage furniture and lighting in soft colors: a wingback chair by Børge Mogensen, pair of Björn Trägårdh easy chairs, and a brass Hans Bergström floor lamp. A cast-brass table by Chinese designer Zhipeng Tan appears to melt into the wool-and-silk, hand-knotted rug underfoot. The custom sofa, inspired by Frits Henningsen, features a handwoven and quilted striped fabric from Sam Kasten.
Warm, horizontal-grain walnut panels conceal storage cabinets and appliances in the kitchen. Scott created contrast and the illusion of a box within a box by covering the inset countertops and backsplash in white glass quartz. Fumed white oak and brass Walcott stools from KGBL provide counter seating.
Just off the kitchen, Scott carved out an intimate dining area, outfitted with a custom-designed banquette and vintage Onkel Adam lounge chair and ottoman by Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist. The couple can enjoy meals or hunker down with a book in this cozy corner. “
Calm, comfort, and lightness is what Scott’s clients hoped for, and that comes through in the plush master bedroom, padded with exquisitely soft, handwoven carpet made from 100-percent New Zealand wool. The bed is upholstered in a nubby, striped fabric, offering a graphic and textural contrast to the white walls without straying from the soothing palette. A rare Otto Schulz armchair is upholstered in a dreamy blue from Rogers & Goffigon. Free-form, white oak pendants by John Procario draw the eye upward, then outward to stunning city views.
The result is a pristine, light-filled home that reflects the colors of the city sky, with each room wrapped in textured fabrics and thick-weave carpets and punctuated with unique art and plenty of antique wood.
