Nato Studio added new lights to the already remodeled kitchen, including TK pendants over the island and sconces from Triple Seven. “For the lighting selections, we were looking for very natural materials that have a timeless feel, like brass and milk glass, as opposed to bringing in something that looked too contemporary,” says Cuttle.
A custom white oak cabinet made by North Summit Studio fits the narrow dimensions of the pass-through television room. “We designed it so that if they ever decided to move, it functions as two credenzas with a series of modular boxes that are dovetailed together and stacked on top of each other. Then you have the one large opening for the television,” says Cuttle. “The thinking was that they could then theoretically very easily repurpose all of that into another residence.”
“Those living rooms are always a challenge in brownstones, to furnish in a thoughtful way,” says Cuttle, pointing to the narrow dimensions of the room, the low window sills, and abundance of woodwork taking up wall space. A curving Carl Hansen sofa floats in front of the bay window, so as not to block the light and allowing easy sightlines. The chairs and coffee table are from Lawson Fenning and the rug is Jardan.
