Lenox Hill Hospital’s Inaugural Designer Showhouse of New York: First Look & Tour

Tucked between the winding streets of the Financial District is the Residences at W New York – Downtown, a luxury condominium development, where we ventured to the 55th & 56th floor to marvel at Lenox Hill Hospital’s Inaugural Designer Showhouse of New York. The building’s condos are cozy yet very sleek and modern–a lovely contrast to the expansive Villard Houses we saw last week at the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse.

Well-established designers took to the spaces, each decorating a room with their unique style, proving that even the most modern of spaces can feel like home. As our eyes took in all of the stunning rooms, we saw several trends that we wouldn’t be surprised to see on the pages of top design magazines like Elle Decor and Veranda. Black & white color palettes were seen in abundance as well as pops of citrine (a lovely combination of yellows, greens and browns). We also saw a lot of ultra sleek metal & Lucite furniture and several rooms that were Asian-inspired. Check out the standout rooms from the showhouse:

Ken Gemes’ living room & kitchen area showed us that there’s nothing boring about black & white! By using a variety of Asian-inspired patterns & accents, he created a layered feeling that felt both sophisticated and livable.

Stay tuned next week, when we’ll cover the black & white trend!

This entryway done by Ovadia Design Group is an exemplary way to make a statement in the first part of the home a guest sees. We like how a vignette was created with a bold black & white wallpaper, a large brushed metal table & meaningful accessories.

Felicia Zwebner broke the mold by using a black wallpaper resembling crocodile skin in one of the smaller bedrooms, and she did so with gusto! By combining it with a monochromatic white bed layered with varying textures, the space became chic, modern yet cozy and super sexy. It’s almost as if the black walls wrap around you like a warm blanket.

Meg Brafton riffed on the Asian theme, as well, incorporating chinoiserie prints and a headboard that mimicked the shape of a pagoda. In fact, we saw a seamless blend of all of the showhouse’s trends in her space–There were the citrine walls in the bedroom, the metallic accents in the artwork, and touches of Lucite in the living room, as well!

Caleb Anderson made great use of a small bedroom with a custom made canopy bed that incorporated a floating desk paired with a lucite zig-zag chair. To give the space a luxe feeling, he incorporated several rich textures like silk, heavy linen & mink in neutral shades. Adding a juicy pop of color was an over-dyed rug and bolster pillow in that citrine hue.

A lovely play on mid-century modern, this sitting room by Atelier Durante Interior Design PLLC was simple and timeless with a clean-lined chaise, a lounge chair that looks like it could have come straight out of Mad Men and more citrine (sensing a theme, anyone?)!
