AD Show 2019 is taking place in New York City between the 21st and the 24th of March and it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate interior design! PIERS 92 & 94 at 55th Street at 12th Avenue in New York City will be the home of this event. Meanwhile, when visiting New York City we suggest you take a look at a couple of other places as well – places that combine both art and design.
A Staging project between Tessler Developments and Covet House makes “The Mansion” at 172 Madison Avenue the most coveted address for Design Lovers and Professionals in the Big Apple, just a few steps away from Madison Square Park. Designed by architect Karl Fisher and interiors by Shamir Shah, COVET NYC is fully decorated with a curated selection of furniture, lighting, upholstery and accessories from the best European luxury brands. COVET NYC is a Luxury Experience and the most powerful tool to boost an interior designer’s creativity, right in the heart of New York, the city that never sleeps, and the most inspiring place in the world.
Devoted to French titles, the Albertine sits on the first and second floors of the French Embassy on Fifth Avenue. The bookshop is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon, even if only because of its ceiling – a stunning hand-painted mural that was “modelled after the extraordinary ceiling of the music room at the Villa Stuck in Munich, Germany”.
One of Brooklyn’s most iconic theatres recently reopened after sitting abandoned for over 37 years, the Kings Theater is now an obligatory stop. Originally opened in 1929 as a venue for films and live performances but by the 70s it was already underutilized. The restoration was completed in 2015 and the theatre is back and better than ever.
Built in 1881 and described as “the single most important collection of 19th-century interiors to survive intact in one building” by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the Park Avenue is renowned for both its cutting-edge cultural programming and its impressive architecture. The armoury has since been transformed into a cultural institution and is now undergoing a renovation by a team of modern-day masters.
Radio City Music Hall is full of gorgeous interior spaces. The soaring lobby, covered in a mural by Ezra Winter, is just the beginning – everything from the theatre itself, with its simple-but-beautiful design, to the downright luxurious bathrooms, feels as incredibly stunning as it must have when the theatre opened in the 30s.
Famous for its rotating dance floor and the glitzy crystal chandelier, the Rainbow Room is an attraction for countless stars who haven’t missed the chance to dance through its floors. From Elizabeth Taylor to Michael Jackson, every star has wanted to take a step into such an iconic room.
Once an abandoned building, The Beekman Hotel – a luxury lodging that opened to the public in 2016 – is best known for its nine-story atrium, topped with a gorgeous skylight. All restored as part of the buildings’ transformation into a hotel, now a mandatory stop for anyone in NYC.
Despite years of disuse, TWA Terminal at JFK Airport is New York City’s most spectacular example of mid-century modernism. Eero Saarinen built the terminal in 1962 in a time when air travel represented the promise of the future. Its gorgeous curved structure—innovative at the time, and still fresh to this day—is the opposite of what one expects from an airport experience, made all the more interesting thanks to the pops of colour throughout.
