Sol & Luna’s Giron dining chairs feature in Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber’s Family-Friendly New York Apartment – shot for Architectural Digest

Iron dining chairs by Sol y Luna - Naomi Watts in Architectural Digest

Actors Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are best known for their big-screen roles, but in their downtime, the A-list couple retreat to a recently updated apartment in Tribeca, one of Manhattan’s most fashionable neighbourhoods.  After a ten-month renovation by the design firm Ashe + Leandro, with whom Watts worked closely throughout the process, the light-filled home displays elements of three archetypal New York City layouts: a stately townhouse, an uptown duplex, and a classic loft. The combination results in what the actress calls “a real grown-up apartment,” with all of the character that comes with it, from the beveled-glass kitchen cabinetry and Sol y Luna’s Giron dining chairs to the dramatic archway in the entry. Rustic elements blend with softer, more graceful additions to create an eclectic look that is at once stylish and comfortable—a place where the Watts-Schreiber clan can put family first and unwind between cross-country trips.  These photographs were taken for the March 2016 issue of Architectural Digest magazine.

As the co-founder of made.com, Chloe Macintosh’s stylish west London home is an eclectic jumble of styles, showing an aesthetic closely resembling that of her ideal customer.  Much of the furniture is from Chloe’s own company, Made.com, which she set up after leaving her job as an architect. Other pieces are sourced from London, Paris and India.

There is a happy mix of classic design, antique furniture, and vintage treasures picked up on their travels; it is a beautiful house, but first and foremost it is a home made for living in.
