The Osborne at 205 W 57th Street is considered one of the great apartment buildings of New York City. Over 135 years later the property’s spacious interiors, historical architecture, and prime location render it as desirable as ever and a pretty perfect home for a lucky family of four.
Reunion Goods & Services, in collaboration with architects Fogarty Finger Architecture, modernized a 2,700 square apartment while highlighting and restoring the classic details. Designed for a family with two young children, Reunion helped the clients achieve their goal of making the apartment sophisticated and chic while remaining inviting and comfortable.
In the modern living room, the design team kept things light and whimsical, opting for a subtle tone paint scheme and modern furniture to emphasize architectural detail.
