PS: What was the biggest design challenge you faced?
NS: The space itself was once an industrial textile factory — meaning wonderful 15-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the SoHo streets, and original Corinthian columns, but few interior walls.
Since she wanted to create both a family room for sports watching and a living room for reading and relaxing without breaking up the space, we needed to create the illusion of distinctly separate spaces without constructing a wall. By anchoring both spaces with the two largest furniture pieces (the sofa and sectional from ABC Home) and decorating them with a distinct feel, we managed to draw an invisible line between the two.
