Fox-Nahem Design

I wanted to share some images from an old edition of Elle Decor USA (May 2001) - I've been carrying this magazine around with me since I bought it, and has moved from Japan to Australia to Hong Kong with me. This apartment is still one of my favorites to this day. When I first saw the living room it took my breath away. I don't quite know what it is that I love so much about it, perhaps its the lightness in the room, the beautiful architectural detailing, and the exquisite selection of colours and furniture arrangement. This apartment is in an old Stanford White building in New York, and was designed by the firm Fox-Nahem.



I just adore this living room. The sofa was custom-made, the side chairs are Jean-Michel Frank replica's and the slipper chairs are Billy Haines.

A Francis Elksins side chair in the living room.


Andre Arbus cabinet in the living room.







Vintage Italian 1950's wing-back dining chairs in the oak-panelled dining room.



Custom leather sofa and shelving by Fox-Nahem in the library.


Stunningly beautiful kitchen.





Super sexy master bedroom.

I love the scale of the rooms. Spacious rooms and architecturally well designed spaces are the ultimate luxury., the rest is frosting on the cake. Great post

That is a beautiful apartment, most especially the living room. That room is pretty close to perfect. Do you know who designed the chair to the left of the fireplace? Is it a Drouet?

POC - the article didn't say who designed the other chair by the fireplace, but it does look like a Drouet, doesn't it! I'll see if I can do some investigating...

Patricia - I agree, the scale is so beautiful - they were lucky to start out with such an incredible building, but the interior is just beautiful.

Hi Suzy
I should have saidthat these interiors are beautiful, gorgeous frosting on the cake. I went onto their web-site and they do some amazing design.

Suzy said...

Patricia - I agree. They have a knack for mixing mid to early century pieces.

Those first two rooms are really some kind of beautiful. Breathtaking.

I like "A Francis Elksins side chair in the living room." A great care of color coordination has been taken. Looks great.
