The ebonized floors and stark white walls provided the perfect backdrop for furnishings in a palette of warm earth tones and various types of wood. The room was divided into two seating areas, with the primary area containing the sofa, chaise and two club chairs surrounding the SPI LINE Blanco Coffee Table whose nickel-plated frame supports an elegant white stone top. The secondary seating area, which serves as the clients' formal dining room, features a Danish-inspired dining table designed by SPI known as the Porter Dining table. The table, constructed of white oak, offers seating for six when expanded with its two 15-inch leaves. This simple division of space allowed the couple to have a formal dining area in spite of the apartment's small size. The custom rug by Elizabeth Eakins, woven from hand-selected strands of yellow, tan and white yarn, covers most of the living room. The large windows that look onto 5th Avenue were treated as picture frames and dressed in sheer fabric that allows light to enter but opaque enough for privacy when drawn.
