The May/June issue of NYC&G features a double page spread on the dual buildings – The Townsend at 1123 and The Saint James at 1133 Broadway, and the numerous interior design professionals who call them home.
Very exciting for Glenn Gissler Design to be included in this amazing group of designers, including Robert Stilin, Greg Tankersley, Ray Booth, Barry Goralnick, Kevin Isbell, and Young Huh.
Broadway in the 20’s continues it’s emergence as an interior design destination!

The clients, empty nesters with a house in Westchester, New York are passionate and discerning art collectors. Modest in size, superlative in quality, their collection includes works by Cy Twombly, Joan Miro, Jim Dine, Edvard Munch, Jean Dubuffet, Richard Serra, Robert Motherwell, Henri Matisse, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg and Frank Stella.
We sought to create a setting for these pieces that would display them prominently yet without ostentation. It was the clients’ desire truly to live with art, meshing seamlessly the works on the walls with fine pieces of twentieth century furniture, to live in the comfort of understated style, design originality and quality.

Following the 1980’s advertising slogan “Never let them see you sweat”, interior designers work to make their projects look effortless; however, much effort goes on behind the scenes in advance of the ‘big reveal’. (We keep band-aids on hand in case of blood, there is always sweat, and sometimes even tears!)
Nest Magazine was an outlier in the magazine world with a brief but impactful life from 1997-2003.
Joseph Holtzman, founder, and editor-in-chief created an outrageously unique and provocative experience for readers, exploring and revealing every kind of dwelling, from the professionally designed and grand to the humble yet beautiful.
In the video below, shot at the NYSID lecture I organized “Nest – A Wild Adventure”, Lisa Zeiger, former decorative arts editor at Nest, presents a lecture that explores Nest as a magnificently unified work of art reflecting the taste of its founder, and offers a rare glimpse into the magazine’s photography, graphic design, and eclectic array of authors and interiors.
The lecture was followed by a discussion with Mitchell Owens, decorative arts editor at Architectural Digest, and myself in my capacity as president of ASID New York Metro, on the magazine’s creators, exuberant content and its influence on design thinking and writing today.
