The power duo of Carrier & Co. and actress Jessica Chastain revived the splendor of a 19th-century New York apartment to that of its glory days.
“Our biggest triumph was breathing new life, glamour, and sophistication into the old girl,” Carrier notes. “This home was built to be bold and beautiful, like its new owner.”
The room’s authentic old world spirit infuses subtle variations in texture and style. From the chintz tufted chair, the modern curves of the cocktail table to the textured walls housing it all, this elegant redo is steeped in history.
During the renovations, Chastain was quite drawn to vintage pieces – “things where I can feel the energy”. So much so that the chintzy slipper chair in front of the fireplace is that of Lauren Bacall. The core furnishings that anchor the room have classic elegance – a timelessness that is key to good design.
