When perusing New York City real estate listings, you'll see a lot of beautiful and high-priced apartments, decorated (naturally) with beautiful and high-priced furnishings. While you may not be able to afford that multi-million dollar condo, or everything in it, it is possible to steal a bit of that high style with the purchase of one chic, on-trend piece.
That's where our feature, "Shop This Space" comes in. In it, we highlight a pleasingly-appointed room in an apartment that would bust most New Yorkers' budget, find out how much the individual items are, and where you can get them. We’ve looked at a Williamsburg waterfront rental, a condo in Hudson Yards, a penthouse on the Upper East Side, and a Lower East Side one bedroom.
The model unit, staged by ddc, is intended to feel sexy, sophisticated, warm and very open. "The dark, sumptuous tones and textures create a refined and opulent feel, while maintaining a sense of welcoming comfort, and warmth, a balance that is a hallmark of ddc," says Babak Hakakian, partner at ddc.
Love what you see? The ddc New York flagship is at 134 Madison Ave., and if you're looking for a price break of some kind (relatively speaking) the ddc outlet is located at 16 East 40th St.
