New York is the cradle of great and renowned interior designers and architects. Eric Cohler is one of them. He is known for his capability of combining classic and contemporary elements, designing spaces that look carefully composed yet are luxuriously comfortable.
Recently, he designed a Gramercy park triplex, in collaboration with his brother Matt Cohler; this apartment is exceptional, a little strange, and likely to be highly coveted by most people who see it. With a guest room and kitchenette in the English basement, entertaining areas on the parlor floor, and three bedrooms on the third level, the triplex certainly had a lot going for it; in particular, its high ceilings, three fireplaces, and abundant windows.
For this project, the brothers Cohlers mixed 18th and 20th century furnitures, turning the apartment into a peaceful refuge for a client with a notably high-octane career. The living and dining rooms, in particular, share an intimate yet sophisticated air that comes from their irreverent mix of furnishings, colors, and metallic accents. While the dining room is quietly chic, the living room’s vibe is decidedly livelier, thanks in part to a luminous red-and-white abstract canvas by Caio Fonseca and two large blue-hued works.
Pride of place has been given to a circa-1912 grand piano, inherited from the two brothers’ great grandmother; the musical instrument represents another evidence of Cohlers’ passion for antiques.
Considering furnishings and decorative elements in their totality, there is no doubt that the two brothers succeeded in making this residence welcoming and absolutely cozy, as they wanted it to be.
