An Apartment of Many Moods: East 58th Street by Eve Robinson Associates

Yes, this apartment is contemporary — but “contemporary” can portray a range of moods, as this space designed by Eve Robinson Associates ably demonstrates. Welcome the “landscape” art of city lights and skyline through floor-to-ceiling glass — or amble down a corridor with fresh white walls as a backdrop for abstract black-and-white art in black frames. Sit a spell on the white bench and gaze across that hallway, and you’ll see vases and a mirror, sconces, and a sideboard in a unique wood design. By day, the palette of neutral sand and cream in the living room is functional without being intrusive; by night, with the rectangular lamps on and a good movie on the plasma TV, it’s cozy — not the first word that may come to mind with glass-topped tables and coral accents!

In the home office, this apartment is all business: woodgrain shelves and desk, executive office chair, and oval modern lamp — complementing the natural light from those wonderful windows. At the kitchen table, a game of dominoes is in progress, with thoroughly modern abstract art on the wall and light fixture above. For more formal meals, the long dining table is set with the best china and crystal that gleams in reflected city lights. And when it’s time to retire for the night, oval-shaded chrome lamps provide just the right reading light over plush wing chairs, while a wall-mounted scissors lamp does the same for the clean-lined bed with its inviting stacks of pillows and cushioned bench. This is an apartment of soothing neutrals, uncluttered lines, and modern style — but it’s also a cozy place, one that makes both owners and guests feel “at home” in all the best ways.
