This beautiful loft is located in a skyscraper that was built in the 1920s and then served as the headquarters of the New York Telephone Company in Manhattan. There are now several luxurious residences in the Art Deco tower including this loft which was taken care of by interior designer – and formerly fashion designer – Timothy Godbold.
Godbold's assignment was to bring one of the show apartments to life. He drew inspiration from graphic paintings by the Senegalese artist Babacar M'Bodi Niang and from pop art and graffiti. "I wanted to stay away from the mid-century 50s and 60s look and see what a 70s and 80s vibe would do to space," says Godbold. The result is beautiful! A nice balance between materials, forms and colour. Godbold kept the overall colour palette to a minimum with a masculine mix of white, black and cognac. With rich textures in the carpet, chairs and wooden details, the designer brought warmth and nuance to the simple palette.
