A “sense of purity and pristiness” can be noticed through an ondulating façade of large windows framed by white concrete.

“The courtyard is one of the many features that sets 160 Leroy apart from all other new residences in the city,” says Schrager in a statement. “It’s a separate intense reality. The experience of arriving at 160 Leroy will be transformative.”

Bunny Williams Opens Her First Showroom in NYC http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/decorators-designers/bunny-williams-opens-her-first-showroom-in-nyc/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/decorators-designers/bunny-williams-opens-her-first-showroom-in-nyc/#comments Mon, 17 Aug 2015 14:27:10 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=1852

Bunny Williams is often referred to as one of the top decorators in the classical tradition, for good reason: nobody does it better. With numerous collaborations and with her own eponymous brand – Bunny Williams Home – she has recently opened her new showroom in New York City where her old and new creations interact perfectly.

“When we found the space in the Fine Arts Building, it was the perfect fit,” Williams says of her new 4,000-square-foot showroom on New York’s Upper East Side.

When putting together her showroom—as with all of her design projects—proper proportions were paramount. “A space has to be strong and bold but also balanced,” she notes. In the showroom, her famous teeny-tiny occasional tables are scattered about, ever-present resting spots for a cocktail or cup of coffee. Her sweet slipper chairs offer petite perches in the bedrooms, while other items—her oversize Tray Chic ottoman and a new line of beds for Bunny Williams Home—make big statements.

This new showroom is the reflection of Bunny’s creativity and distinctive aesthetic, with collections that are reproductions of her own treasures, as well as original pieces, designed in-house, that she thinks are essential to one’s home environment.

OUTSTANDING NEW SKYLINE SCULPTURES WITH MORE THAN 5000 PIECES http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/outstanding-skyline-sculptures-with-more-than-5000-pieces/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/outstanding-skyline-sculptures-with-more-than-5000-pieces/#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:50:48 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=683 These amazing art pieces were made of what most people see as not very useful material: scrap wood. The Philadelphia-based modern artist JAMES MCNABB has carved thousands of pieces of scrap wood and carefully placed them together to form a vast city skyline creating a modern sculpture. The wooden skyscrapers, made in different shapes and sizes, look remarkably like the Manhattan skyline in New York City.

The collection, totals a staggering five thousand individual buildings also includes a huge ‘city wheel’ – which is almost five feet high. And the contemporary artist explained how the idea came about.

“I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the bin, and without thinking, made some cuts. In a few minutes the piece started to look strangely familiar, like a screwdriver or a mini skyscraper. I grabbed another piece of scrap wood, and made another object – this time, it looked like wrench, or a table leg. In the next hour I made 15 more – I stayed up that night and worked until morning. In 24 hours I made more than 200, all intricately different from the next.”
