Brooklyn based Interior Design firm Jesse Parris-Lamb were commissioned to design a three bedroom, 2,300 square foot 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.
