The Apartment by The Line – New York

What new meanings and functions do quintessential objects take on in an intimate domestic setting? How do storied objects relate to one another? What do they say about their owner? The answers are revealed in The Apartment by The Line – New York.

Make yourself at home amid timeless, versatile pieces that favor bold forms and materials that celebrate rather than conceal their histories.

The Apartment’s own story dates to 1872, when 76 Greene Street was just an eye-poppingly intricate sketch on the drawing board of Isaac F. Duckworth. A master of cast-iron architecture, he looked to the eclectic baroque of the Second Empire to design a “commercial palace” worthy of the flourishing dry goods company owned by Gardner Colby (whose name lives on in the Maine college he endowed). The building changed hands many times as the New York neighborhood of SoHo grew and transformed around it.

Some 150 years after the building first opened for business, its third floor has been reborn as the light-filled home of a discerning woman who appreciates a finely tailored jacket as much as a bespoke velvet sofa. The airy yet cozy living room, bounded on one side by an original Corinthian column and on another by a wall of large windows, is a considered collection of textures, forms, and eras. Beyond the kitchen and dining room, the lacquered box of a walk-in closet is part inner sanctum, part loft divider. Pass through it find the bedroom and bath, which take full advantage of the eastern exposure.
