One Beacon Court by Tara Benet

Located in the One Beacon Court building inside the Bloomsberg Towers sits this modern condo designed by painter and interior designer Tara Benet. With sweeping New York City views framed by large windows, the mostly white interior is flooded with light giving a wide open and airy feel. Benet worked with art advisor Kati Lovaas to fill the space with emerging art that pops against the white walls.


Pairing a calacatta marble dining table with leather chairs from Poliform on top of a neutral rug from ABC Carpet & Home creates a neutral environment for the artwork that’s featured in the dining room. The large green “X” is from Philippe Decrauzat and the iron sculpture that hangs is by Valentin Carron, both of which add visual interest into the space.


The white sofa is accented with dark gray and black pillows providing a nice contrast. The dark wood floors also set the tone for the entire apartment making white the perfect choice for the walls and ceilings.



The massive modular book shelf, also from Poliform, features gray cubbies helping to break up the white.


The living room is complete with the placement of an Arco lamp from Flos.





This painting! The color! I can’t get enough of the fluorescent pink in this painting by Gardar Eide Einarsson that’s paired with a white marble credenza from Cassina.



In the kitchen, a Knoll Saarinen dining table is partnered with Cassina Philippe Starck 245 Caprice chairs.


Up close you see the chairs are upholstered, adding more texture to the room.
