1. Central Park West Family Home by Amy Lau Design

Interiors by Amy Lau Design; Photography by Kim Sargent

This bright and bubbly family home puts a fresh spin on mid-century style. While the residence does feature classic modern furnishings, including an Eero Saarinen Tulip dining set, designer Amy Lau incorporated a number of singular elements, such as a magnificent living room rug inspired by a Fort Street Studio watercolor. The home’s pièce de résistance is a custom undulating wall that helped solve some of the residence’s inherent layout issues. While the wall’s form was inspired by the outline of Alvar Aalto’s iconic Savoy vase, sculptor and furniture designer, Jim Zivic, was commissioned to clad the structure’s facade with strips of chocolate-brown leather.

Designer Patrick Mele has a knack for creating just the right amount of drama in an interior. This home’s black-and-white palette is emboldened by daring patterns, expressive abstract art, and luxe finishes. The stylish  abode features numerous classical elements that have been reimagined for today, including French medallion chairs upholstered in lustrous black patent leather and a classical portrait hung above a Maison Jansen-style side table.
