This apartment for a family with a child in the Chelsea area, New York, is located in a building of the early 20th century, and there has not been a renovation for the last 40 years. From the time of construction, the apartment inherited wooden columns, ceiling beams, and cast-iron capitals – the designers decided to leave them and make them a central element of the interior. A large total area, as much as 205 sqm, completely allowed to roam with the design. The owners demolished some walls and partitions, letting in natural light into the apartment. To support the wooden columns, a lot of stone and natural materials were used in the interior – for example, an interesting kitchen island or a sink in the guest bathroom. Owners are very fond of art, including contemporary, so they did not have to think long with decor and details: the rooms have lots of photos, paintings, sculptures and custom-made furniture.
