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.

‘The Apartment’ in Antwerp, designed by Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen

The Apartment is a rentable space over two floors, above the Graanmarkt 13 shop in Antwerp.  It was designed as a place ‘where everyone would feel at home’, and now travellers can stay in the flat and live like a local in this wonderful city.  Inspired by his own home, the concrete walls and stunning interiors were the creation of Vincent Van Duysen – one of Belgium’s most respected architects.  These photographs by Frederik Vercruysse have featured in Architectural Digest and in Wallpaper magazine.

We love the elegant table and chairs here – this could easily be replicated with an oak table by Heerenhuis – perhaps the Trappist, together with some bentwood chairs…
