The Bond Street Loft in the East Village in Lower Manhattan plays up modernism with elegant luxe. The stylish spaces designed by Axis Mundi still remain quite functional.
With an open plan, the modern dream apartment is as equally an ideal spot for social gatherings as it is for comfortable and spacious living. Draped in tonal greys and creams, the effect is soothing, even understated.
Smokey-hued hardwood floors are gorgeous and expand throughout this home. Large textured concrete tiles cover the walls, while some are left white and hung with eclectic artwork. While totally contemporary, some of the art is demure while a focal piece in the dining room pops with playful color. Roman support columns contribute character while creating a cool contrast between modern and classic.
The family room is light-filled and airy, with a surround of full volume windows and open shelving. A plush contemporary sectional is adorned with throw pillows and sits upon a soft silvery rug. Geometric coffee tables in black add angular contrast, while a chrome-framed armchair is draped with white animal fur.
More minimalist in design, the adjacent living room features pale charcoal linen sofas and a small white tulip side table. A floor lamp with oversize white drum shade rests next to a molded upholstered side chair.
The dining room is fabulous with a huge, sleek wood table and double benches on each side–love a good bench design when we see one! End chairs are reverse-hued leather, while the chandelier consists of a cascade of effervescent glass bubbles.
The connected kitchen is downright dreamy by New York standards. High-gloss flat panel cabinetry is a two-toned linear mix of medium-slate and snow white. A stainless steel backsplash absolutely gleams, while the thick black countertop pierced with a column adds intrigue to this striking culinary space.
Bathrooms are resplendent in taupe against white. A fully glazed, walk in shower is clad in rectangular glass tiles and features its own private tub. Another spa bathroom is an oasis with a freeform soaking tub and framed piece of art perched above it.
A modern dream apartment, the Bond Street Loft is awash in a rich monochromatic palette injected with sophisticated urban design.
