living room with Napoleonic plans / Garrow Kedigian Interior design
Designer Garrow Kedijan (Garrow Kedigian) created this living room with Napoleon in mind. “There was a lot of elegance in Napoleon’s campaign, he always traveled surrounded by beautiful things, and in this sense, the attitude towards design has not changed over the years, — Garrow says. ─ It is said that when setting up camp, he ordered to equip a temporary salon for himself, where he could rest between battles. All items in our living room — both classical and modern — easy to fold and transport from place to place.
An unusual feature in the design of the walls — chalk patterns hand-drawn by artist Rajiv Surendra (Rajiv Surendra). The contours of the panels and the decorative frieze are a modern interpretation of elements of classical architecture.
Designer Philip Thomas designed a boudoir for the modern woman, where she can escape the chaos and stress of city life. The designer dedicated the work on this room to his mother, who had a huge influence on Philip’s choice of profession and continues to support him in his creative development.
Architectural details such as plaster molding and a bespoke mirror create a sense of warmth and visually expand the space. On the walls, sheathed in cream fabric, bright strokes and stripes are applied with spray paint. Furniture and works of art XX And XXI centuries form a complex multi-layered composition that can be viewed for hours.
cabinet evolution / Benjamin Vandiver
For his debut at Kips Bay, decorator Benjamin Vandiver presented a three-part installation: Ending, Rising, and Reincarnation.
His work is a practical study on the evolution of design, in which the author combines the work of traditional designers (for example, from the company fortune) and the concept artists that are popular these days, such as the creative duo from material Lust.

Roof garden – an oasis above the city / Hollander design
This serene rooftop garden — a real oasis in the center of the metropolis, because here you can hide from the crazy rhythm of life, which is so typical for the center of New York. The garden owes its simple grace to a sense of tranquility to the thoughtful combination of luxurious materials and lush plants.
With the help of living screens made of bamboo and boxwood, the space of the roof was divided into two “rooms”. In the dining area, there is a table for eight people made of zinc and moisture-resistant teak wood from Henry Hall Designs. The living area is furnished with furniture from Walters Wicker and Gaze Burvill.

The main visual accent of the garden was a spherical stainless steel sculpture called Torus works by David HarberDavid Harber).
The art of modern life in the library / Ever Robinson associates
Inspired by the idea that “living well is an art,” designer Eve Robinson designed a library for the art lover to relax alone or with friends.
An inclined shelf with a limiter, on which art albums are displayed, acts as an impromptu bureau. The work area is marked with a blue-gray pebbled leather insert, and an iPad charging station is built in to the right of it. The dark gray lacquered shelves create a striking contrast with the matte bleached wood frame.

dressing room for privacy / Les Ensembliers

Their room is a kind of refuge for a sophisticated woman with a creative mindset, who travels a lot and has a strong character. This is more than just a dressing room: after all, in this quiet, secluded place you can alone or in the company of your closest friends.
white orchid bedroom / Timothy Whealon
The design of this room is inspired by the ideas about the decoration of the country houses of the English aristocracy, but in a more modern way. When designing it, Timothy Wheelon envisioned estates built in the 1920s on northern Long Island:The Caumsett Foundation And old Westbury Gardensas well as the home of architect David Adler (David Adler) in Chicago.
Doris Duke could live in this room [известная американка — филантроп и коллекционер произведений искусства — прим. ред.] or Cecil Beaton [английский фотограф, дизайнер по интерьерам, художник по костюмам и декорациям —прим. ред.]finding here a respite from the hectic social life. A trained eye can find English, Asian and Swedish designs in this room, but in essence it is still purely American.

Kati Curtis designed one of the main staircases in the house, wanting to take guests on an exciting journey from floor to floor, which she says is meant to give them a sense of “beauty that borders on spiritual enlightenment and uplift their spirits as they ascend .” .
The walls of the stairs and landings are covered with de Gournay silk wallpaper. On the fourth-floor landing, Katya has set up gothic-style carved-back chairs and a modern blue lacquered wooden chest of drawers.

Small Italian living room and terrace / Sawyer Berson
The inspiration for this room came from memories of Italian design in the 1930s and 1940s. Sawyer Burson’s interior features luxurious materials in a green and gold palette — as well as the famous garden room in the Milan Museum Villa Necchi Campiglio.
The terrace, which opens onto a small living room, has been turned into a Tuscan hilly garden. The intricate relief and arborvitae create an altered perspective so that the garden appears endless when viewed from the living room.
living room – american dream / Victoria Hagan interiors
Designer Victoria HaganVictoria Hagan) returned to the exhibition Kips Bay after a 25 year break. This job — a token of gratitude to all those who have supported her over the years. “I dedicate my Great American Living Room to those who are impressed and inspired by me.

Dining room for meetings / Alex Papachristidis interiors
This dining room is designed as a place where all family members come, where they mix with the guests and sit down together at the table. The spacious space looks almost dreamlike with exquisite, bespoke pieces including 18th-century furniture, ancient Roman relics and hand-painted Gracie wallpaper. Light colors and elegant things create a relaxed atmosphere that encourages communication.
kitchen from Orient Express / Clive Christian interiors
This contemporary kitchen with Art Deco touches showcases the splendor of a bygone era. The kitchen and adjoining dining room embody the elegance of Art Deco style, to which designers from Clive Christian treated with particular trepidation. The finish is dominated by walnut wood and white paint with a pearly sheen.
The designer drew inspiration from the interiors of the famous “Orient Express», in which compartments of Pullman cars were divided by panels of carved glass. Glass panels used in the project Lalique titled “Crows and Grapes” — for finishing a mantelpiece and an apron, as well as interior partitions.
The same ravens and grapes motif was repeated in two mosaic panels that are used as sliding doors on a cupboard. They were hand-crafted from eight different types of veneer, including eye maple, hazel, sapele (African mahogany) and cherry.
Family room of exquisite simplicity / Suzanne Kasler interiors
Based on classic urban interiors, designer Suzanne Kasler decided to design a simple sophisticated yet room, adorned with books, art and numerous vintage finds from a Parisian flea market.
Since the room is located next to a white limestone terrace, the designer opted for linen and velvet fabrics in neutral tones, with blue-gray for accents.

Urban oasis on the terrace / Daniel Richards design
The place was conceived as a quiet oasis in the midst of Manhattan’s urban jungle, with hundreds of flowering hydrangeas, a fence of neatly trimmed boxwood, and dwarf evergreen cedar. A collection of modern sculptures and ceramics from the Belgian company Atelier Vierkant are placed between pieces of garden furniture.
This entryway is inspired by the Blue Bar in London. Berkeley Hotel, which was designed by David Collins 16 years ago. By reinterpreting the design of the bar and adapting it to a private home, the authors of the project at the same time wanted to pay tribute to the designer’s love for the color blue.
The wall color is a fresh interpretation of Farrow & Ball’s Lutyens Blue, which takes on a fresh new look against a black and white striped natural stone floor and Baker’s hand-painted Chiyogami wallpaper. The rose arrangement was provided by Emily Thompson Flowers and the art was provided by Alexander Innes.
