With a client that requested the feel of Tom Ford and Halston with the concept of a nook and a cocoon, Messana O’Rorke turned this 1960’s NYC apartment into a sleek residence for entertaining. Located in Chelsea, the apartment was designed with a dramatic palette of rich black and greys that are carried through each room to create a cohesive interior.
The floor was made from a reclaimed oak fence that was stained dark and laid out in a chevron pattern. The walls are painted in three shades of grey and the cabinets are lacquered in black, which reflects light and the city views.
Original walls were removed to create an open floor plan that flows between each space.
In the kitchen, the counter and backsplash are made of Kenya Black stone with bold natural veins running through it that work well with the black lacquered cabinets.
