Plascon House Tour: Big Apple Industrial Living
The large living space of this New York apartment features bold industrial lighting which pops against the off-white backdrop. The space large and bright, with thanks to bold aluminium doors that allow for natural light to infiltrate this spacious retreat.
The room is curated with a mix of modern furniture, heirlooms and quirky pieces. A silk rug anchors the velvety sofas while a bold table features striking woodwork with a mix of sharp edges. Concrete floors, aluminium doors and a muted colour palette keeps this space cool and calm with hints of modern interest shining through the quirky choice of furniture items.
Bold artwork fills the walls. In fact, the owner brings in antiques, art and eclectic objects to prevent the space becoming sterile.
The kitchen is bold and masculine in dark tones which creates instance drama here. Shiny black subway tiles offer a wonderful reflective quality to this space while the use of a bold cow’s head above the worktop creates an almost shocking yet surprisingly appealing statement of the owner’s style.
To bring warmth and a sense of identity to the north side of the apartment, Pol used American walnut panelling and hung a show-stopping chandelier above the huge dining table. It certainly is a statement piece in hints of gold and glass.
Each room has its own unique ambience. In the master bedroom, a four-poster bed centres the room. Bold dark wallpaper becomes a feature wall here – this is a hand-painted mermaid- motif wallpaper by New Yorker Carolyn Ray. The room is complete with blackout blinds that make this the perfect spot to unwind and switch off from the bustle of New York living.
