In Tribeca, New York, a pied-à-terre for a family was transformed by Jessica Gersten Interiors. The material-savvy designer developed a uniquely inspiring palette made up of jewel-toned colours, black iron and brass, travertine, and above all walnut accents.
The apartment refers to the works of designers Gio Ponti, Marco Zanuso, Ico Parisi, Jean Prouvé, Pierre Chareau as well as artists Donald Judd lamp and Alexander Calder.
Walnut panelling is used throughout spaces such as the living room niche, where the walnut is complimented by an emerald green sofa with an Alexander Calder-inspired end table. In the dining room, a walnut table is flanked by chairs from Overgaard and Dyrman of Denmark. A partition between the open kitchen and dining room is a walnut and metal banquette, with a buffet custom designed by Jessica.
Walnut is carried through to the master bedroom with a panelled headboard and integrated night tables, which were inspired by the work of Donald Judd.
