New York family residence owned by Stefano and David Maupin is a tribute to art and modern design. The architect Annabelle Selldorf is responsible for the renovation of this Victorian-era Manhattan apartment. Take a look!
David Maupin and Stefano Tonchi decided to have a new and bigger apartment when they were expecting their two little girls. Friends and family believed that they were going to choose an apartment in elegant Manhattan and so they did! Why? Because they are both connected with the world of art and design. Maupin as cofounder of the Lehmann Maupin gallery, Tonchi as the editor of W magazine.
In order to have the home of their dreams, they invited Annabelle Selldorf to work with them. David and Stefano choose her because of the rigor and elegance that she does all of her projects. Their Osborne home was built in 1885 and from that moment, the house had changed hands only 3 times.
It is important to say that “with Selldorf, they agreed to leave the Arts and Crafts details: leaded-glass windows, geometric transoms above the doors, carved moldings, ceramic-tile fireplace surrounds.” Although the space is traditional, the decoration doesn’t have to follow the same path. On the contrary, because this apartment has modern details all over.
All the furniture is mid-century modern, but we can also see that the colors used are vibrant and bright. For example, green, orange, and turquoise.
Regarding her clients, Selldorf says that they “feel like family. There were no differences of opinion. We had this serendipitous relationship, playing off each other’s ideas.”
Now talking a little bit more about this New York Family Residence. The living room is filled with natural light and bath in warm tones.
