This week, our design editor Wendy Goodman goes to the offices of Epoch Films (and one of the owner's apartments, which has double-height windows), Diane Meier's office (which looks more like a cozy home), checks out artificial heart pumps at Art et Industry, and finds some amazing pieces at Liza Sherman Antiques.
Epoch Film Offices
These are the offices of Epoch Films, designed by Fernlund + Logan Architects, who have also designed Isaac Mizrahi's offices and Visionaire's offices. They are really cool. They are known for their light and their elegant, no-fuss spaces.
These are very simple plywood bookshelves in that office. They take very simple materials and do very streamlined, elegant work.
This is where the company all eats lunch together. These tables can all be broken down so it's not one long table, but this is part of my fantasy of the world's longest table. If they need to use the tables for conferences or for quick cleanup, they can.
Utilitarian Materials Look So Chic
These are pegboard shelving units — I love the clean look. Again, very utilitarian materials for a very clean look.
Do Not Walk Around Naked
This is designed by Fernlund + Logan. This is one of the Epoch principle's apartments, with a huge double-height window. And the space is just so magnificent.
The Light Is Astounding
The open kitchen just before you enter the gorgeous living space. This space was originally a floor in a factory building.
An Office Unafraid of Color
Here we are in the offices of Diane Meier, an author and design brand consultant. This is a very Edwardian-style work environment in an original McKim Mead and White building.
It Has a Homey Vibe
This is the entrance foyer to the office. It gives you the nod that this is an un-officey office, much more residential in feeling.
Communal Dining at Work
This is the kitchen. Everyone in the office eats together around a big dining table in the middle of the day. And why wouldn't you, if you had this kitchen?
What a Fun Way to Update Furniture
Diane is in the midst of hand-painting this sofa. She is also about to launch her first novel, called The Season of Second Chances.
Check With Your Super First
I love the striped, painted floor. Do try this at home.
The Telltale Heart
Now I'm at Art et Industry. This is a cabinet of curiosities, because this store is part twentieth-century furniture lesson, and part novelty can-you-believe-they-have-this. For instance, this is one of the first artificial heart pumps ever used — for a very certain collector.
A Chair's Fifteen Minutes
Here you can see the museum-quality installation against the wall, and this Lucite semi-bubble chair is from the Andy Warhol estate.
It Goes Well With Cupcakes
Forgive me, Amy Sedaris, if I have you pegged completely wrong, but this French chair is something that I think would appeal to you.
Matching the Art to the Furniture
This gorgeous chair high up on the wall is by the Campana Brothers, and the artwork is eerily in the same vein.
These Are More Interesting Than Wide-Screen
If you want vintage TVs, this is the place to go.
The Shadows Thrown Off Are Eerie
Here we are at another shopping stop, Liza Sherman Antiques, at 37a Bedford Street. And her collection is specializing in French and American furniture and home accessories. These are wire-whisk pendant lamps.
Clothing As Art
She also has a wonderful variety of textiles, and I thought these children's Turkish shirts could be framed and used as art.
Something Different for Your Walls
These really are unusual — they're ceramic Turkish caftans.
A New Way to Recycle
These chairs are made from washing-machine metal.
Now There's No Excuse to Litter
And this is an original metal trash basket from the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, where the trash is burned.
Everyone Needs a Great Workspace
A lot of writers visit, as well as decorators, and pick up desks and wonderful office chairs and library furniture.
