Go to Dwell.com to see one of Tamara Eaton Design's recently completed projects.  This renovated SoHo Loft, an old Light Bulb Factory, had a narrow footprint which presented challenges for the design team.  Check out how they overcame these obstacles to produce a high-end and sophisticated product. 

  The residence is located on Crosby Street, which is part of the landmarked SoHo Cast Iron Historic District. Once a manufacturing and industrial area then an artists' enclave, the neighborhood is now a retail hub. This particular loft used to be a light bulb factory, which informed the renovation's materiality. All of the natural light enters the apartment from the living room windows. 590BC worked with Tamara Eaton Design to furnish the interiors, which holds a mix of refined and rough-hewn pieces.

Throw pillows upholstered in fabrics from Upstate, Maharam, and Romo add punches of color. Photo by Frank Oudeman.

Summer Decorating Tips for NYC Terraces

With summer just around the corner, we’re all dying to get out to enjoy the good weather. If you have a terrace or back garden, this time of year, however, often involves substantial cleaning and sprucing up of these long forgotten outdoor spaces. Even if you are lucky enough to have some outdoor space, it’s probably a relatively small space (we live in New York, after all!) which can make the planning and design of it a challenge. The key to making the most of your outdoor living space is to find furniture that is flexible, space-conscious, and crowd-pleasing.
Choosing furniture that allows you to be flexible with arrangement and function is one of the most important considerations when planning your outdoor space. One of my favorite products is the Baleares Modular Lounger from Frontgate. This line comes in a set of four individual wicker pieces that can be arranged together or separately.  You can either create a more intimate atmosphere with the large daybed or instead create a social sitting area clustered around a small table. With a retractable canopy and cushions that come in five different fabric combinations, the Baleares is a perfect all-in-one outdoor set that makes a big impact in a cohesive way.

Space-saving furniture that can easily be stored away during the off seasons is another bonus feature in outdoor furnishings. For example, Harbour Outdoor’s folding LCA chairs are a fresh take on the classic director’s chair and are easily foldable for quick moving in a party atmosphere. They’re also elegant enough to stand along as dining chairs, or even light armchairs, to keep your backyard sophisticated, not campy. Likewise, when summer comes to an end, the chairs can easily be put in storage without taking up too much of the precious little indoor storage space you have in your apartment.

A dining table paired with a banquette is another way to spruce up your outdoor living by bringing a taste of indoor formal living to the outdoors while at the same time accommodating parties of all sizes. Instead of investing in a myriad of chairs, a dining banquette provides seating for a small gathering or can accommodate a host of children for a birthday party.  Also, if built off an existing wall, a banquette can save you much needed space.

Finally, accessories are what will tie the space together and set your backyard apart from the neighbors’. For example, illuminated planters can act as outdoor lighting, adding a soft glow to evening entertaining, while showcasing your garden. They also double as great ice buckets for barbecues and dinner parties when emptied. I like the illuminated planters from Jane Hamley Wells, who has fantastic shapes and colors. Similarly, lanterns are a classic outdoor accessory to complete the mood. My favorite company is Riado whose rope handle detail puts the perfect nautical touch on a polished nickel hurricane lantern.
With these tips in mind, I’m sure preparing your summer urban oasis will prove to be an enjoyable – and easy! – experience.

Aellon Wright X-Back Chair

Brooklyn-based sustainable furniture company AELLON recently introduced its inaugural collection, The Grace Line, inspired by and built from a 45-year old shipwrecked boat named Grace that the co-founders discovered on a surf trip in Indonesia.

Beautifully blending raw material with decadent design, Pelle's Dorit Candle Holders juxtapose construction or paint grade lumber with your choice of 24K Gold, 12K White Gold, Gray, or Mustard finishes to create a geometric patchwork design.

Rebecca Atwood Crisscross Pillow

Brooklyn-based designer and artist Rebecca Atwood has come out with a whole line of pillows and artwork that are absolutely to die for. Our newest obsession is her handpainted, cotton canvas Crisscoss pillow. Inspired by "the shadows from city scaffolding and fire escapes," the fabric was created by hand painting angled stripes across one another to create varying hues of butterscotch. A thick overlapping strip braces the right side of the pillow and continues diagonally on the reverse side of buttery yellow for a truly unique statement piece.

Ro Sham Beaux Fiona Chandelier

Ro Sham Beaux brings sustainable design to the fore with their use of repurposed materials like upcycled steel and beads, hemp, and organic cotton. We've fallen in love with the Fiona Chandelier whose gold, woven hemp frame is draped with cascading white swirl beads, creating a naturally elegant centerpiece for any room.

Statement Hardware from Nest Studio

New Jersey-based Nest Studio pays great attention to fine details with its incredible line of meticulously crafted hardware that will add character and elegance to any piece of furniture.

Pacific Connections Iris Boxes

San Francisco-based Pacific Connections offers a number of beautiful decorative box collections to spruce up your office, bath, or vanity accessories. One of our favorites is the Iris Box with mesmerizing Iris paper inlay created by Iris folding, a paper craft technique that involves folding strips of colored paper in such a way to form an Iris-like design. As each marbleized pattern is handmade, no two pieces are ever the same.

Glamorous gift idea- Agate Coasters

Richard Mishaan Agate Coasters from HSN comes in multiple colors such as pink, purple, teal, and beige. Sold in sets of four, these coasters are a perfect gift for the holidays. Only $50 from HSN.com.

Laura chair by Thomas O'Brien

Made by Hickory chair, the Laura chair is a perfect side chair for any room. The soft tufting adds textural detail to the sloped back chair. Because the back of the chair is rounded, it's an excellent choice in a room where you will see the back of the chair. Frequently we run into an issue where we see not only the front, but the back and sides of a chair. The Laura chair is a good looking chair from all sides, making it a great candidate.

Oslo chaise from Nancy Corzine

This midcentury inspired chaise from Nancy Corzine has a slender wood frame and soft tufting. Similar to Paul McCobb designed furniture, the legs are slightly tapered at the base. Available in several wood or painted finishes from Nancy Corzine.

Stella McCartney floors

This weekend I saw the custom herringbone floors at Stella. Not only is the herringbone assorted stains, but in a few areas there are brass inlay strips also. I love how the classic herringbone floors have been artfully modernized in the Stella McCartney soho store.

Flirt Side table

In shiny brass, the flirt side table is a perfectly poised table for a cocktail. The fluted table is 22" high and about 14" diameter. Designed by the incredible talent at Emporium Home.

Foldable Star Sculptures

From DWR, these foldable star sculptures make a nice table scape for the holidays. Designed in 1965 by John M. Kostick, the stars range from $40-160.
