Tribeca Loft

  • The upholstered furniture is tailored but welcoming, covered in warm-hued fabrics—greens, beiges, and purples—that use texture or unassertive pattern to create additional visual interest. Tables, chairs, and case goods in solid dark-stained wood offer strong, graphic silhouettes. Walls are painted in warm and soothing, yet art-friendly shades of taupe.

Glenn Gissler Design transformed this 2,500 square-foot, 2-bedroom loft apartment in Tribeca for a family of three. Located in a freshly converted former warehouse building, the loft’s principal rooms enjoy Hudson River views and an abundance of natural light through six large west-facing windows, making the remaining walls ideal for displaying a newly acquired collection of fine art.

Gissler worked with his clients to acquire a number of artworks by recognized leading American Abstract Expressionist movement artists to be placed within the calm background. A large, lively canvas by Larry Poons hangs above the living room sofa, while striking works by Theodoros Stamos and Milton Resnick are seen in the entry off the dining area.
