Modern Chic in SoHo:
The birthplace of modern chic, Soho vibrates with a life of its own. The lofts that used to house the hippest artists and galleries are now home to happening haute couture boutiques and the restaurants have also been upgraded far above, shall we say, Campbell’s Soup-level. Prowl its wide cobblestone streets for the city’s finest fashions and unwind in this unbelievable Soho loft. Thanks to its towering ceilings and bombastic paintings (high on fun, low on kitsch), you’ll feel like the subject of a portrait, with the world as your frame.
Factory Girl (and Boy)
Your hosts are successful entrepreneurs with a passion and affinity for art. Indeed, the art that adorns the walls of this loft rivals that of any found in the surrounding galleries.
Velvet, Over Ground
Up above the bustle, you’ll enter through your own private keyed elevator into a vast canvas of black and white. Ornate original tin ceilings run the length of the apartment from the living room, with its mod lamps and swirling black and white carpet. Across the way, a minimalist kitchen with a chunky modern island has a surface that glitters. Much of the apartment is monochrome, a theme that provides a canvas on which other elements may stand out. The espresso maker in the kitchen or the mohair throw on the sofa pick out Basquiat orange from the print that presides over the living room chairs.
Just off this room, past the exposed brick wall, is the guest room, whose walls boast a warm black finish. Still farther lies the expansive master bedroom, which features tall windows that provide stunning views of the neighbourhood’s cast iron buildings. The sleep space is so generous that it even has its own sitting room, perfect for late night talks about everything and nothing.
See and be seen at any of Soho’s fine restaurants. Our hosts recommend Aurora for Italian and Lure Fish Bar across from the Mercer Hotel, though you’ll find good food anywhere you choose to stumble. Flag a cab and you’ll be anywhere in the city in a few minutes, whether you’re in the mood for a museum uptown, the galleries of Chelsea, or something delightfully superficial.”
