Dwellings Issue III: The Financial District
We recently took a jaunt to the Financial District to visit the home of a Furnish Green regular. A neighborhood that is comprised of a blaring contrast between residential and fast-paced finance, the Financial District is rich with beautiful buildings that signal the history of the iconic neighborhood. Daryl’s building boasts its own bit of history with the ground floor being occupied by the first fine dining restaurant established in America, Delmonico’s. Walking past Delmonico’s to enter the building, we travelled up a few floors to Daryl’s apartment. Upon entering we were immediately taken with the style and class of the space.
Daryl has been shopping with Furnish Green for less than a year, but he quickly built a reputation amongst our staff as someone who repeatedly left the store with striking pieces. While he claims that he is by no means a furniture connoisseur, we took notice of his knack for acquiring some of the store’s favorite pieces. A mix of strong Mid Century and Danish Modern furniture, and slightly more playful yet stylish accents, we were excited to see how Daryl had implemented the cool pieces he had stockpiled from Furnish Green.
When asked which, among the many, was his favorite purchased piece, he instinctively points to the Floating Mid Century Danish Modern Desk in the middle of the room. The piece has a commanding presence and looks beautiful in the space.
Another focal piece of the apartment is the Globe Wernicke Co. Oak Barrister Bookcase, with the classic rustic appeal of dark oak wood, glass doors and industrial metal accents. While his place is well-lit and open with lots of large windows it may seem that light fixtures would be an afterthought. But Daryl’s zeal for visually commanding lamps result in an assemblage of fun pieces that remain important in the room, even when the lights are not in use. The Brass and Wood Tension lamp and Hanging Globe Swag Lamps really add some Mid Century ambience.
Daryl continues to flesh out the details of the decor. Keeping a close eye on the site allows him to land the perfect accent pieces like these Mid Century Ram Bookends (featured below) which were a definite favorite of the Furnish Green Team.
Big thanks to Daryl for the tour! Here are just a few more photos!
