Before & After: A Tribeca Loft Fusing Functionality and Eclectic Style

by Annie Werbler

Maintaining the character of a historic site while maximizing functional space is a top priority for many New York City dwellers. Three years ago, when a recently-married couple sought a bigger rental to accommodate the newest member of their family, they lucked out in finding this two-bedroom Tribeca loft in a 1931 former warehouse building. Recommended by a friend, designer Rayman Boozer of Apartment 48 arrived to create the concept and layout for this home in a collaborative, eight-month process. Boozer maintained the original Korean-style kitchen and tied it in seamlessly with more contemporary dining surroundings, arranging each room to allow for ample sunshine through the towering windows. Boozer’s signature eclectic approach is evident in the mix of vintage furniture with exotic accessories and finishes. Floral and geometric patterns effortlessly mingle here, and contrasting colors come together in decorative elements strategically strewn about the place for an updated, traditional-jewelbox sensibility. —Annie
