Park Slope Apartment, Brooklyn New York

Brooklyn based Interior Design firm Jesse Parris-Lamb were commissioned to design a 3 bedroom, 2,300 sq ft duplex apartment which was converted from an old Park Slope Mansion in 2006. The owners, a couple with a young daughter, wanted their home to resemble "a friendly, lived-in 1970's Swedish professor's home".

According to the team at Jesse Parris-Lamb, interiors that are intended to be cosy and comfortable often feel ‘clunky’ and the furnishings tend to be over scaled. The main living space in this project feels light and airy even though dense materials like curly sheepskin and mohair were used. Comfort and pleasing tactility were high on the client’s wish list and every single material and piece of furniture had to be vetted for those qualities.

The Turkish Sofa

"Our clients had high style requirements but needed a sofa that could accommodate their very specific height and comfort needs. This is such a beautiful sofa with clean lines and amazing tactile details like the bun foot and leather button tufting. With the complete flexibility George Smith offers when it comes to dimensions, fill, etc. we were able to make this sofa exactly what our clients wanted" say the studio's founders Amanda Jesse and Whitney Parris-Lamb

About the Design Team

Brooklyn, New York based Interior Design firm Jesse Parris-Lamb was founded in 2014 by Amanda Jesse and Whitney Parris-Lamb, who met over ten years ago in graduate school at the Pratt Institute. Before joining forces to create JPL, both designers spent time working for some of New York’s top interiors firms.
Whitney and Amanda believe that the cooperative nature of their work sets them apart from many young designers. Every project is approached as a true creative collaboration, with both partners fully engaging in design, development, and production. Together, their design work is greater than the sum of its parts. Jesse Parris-Lamb crafts warm, textured interiors shaped by the lives that inhabit them.
