Designer Vanessa DeLeon created the ultimate contemporary space for this Tribeca apartment, using black leather furniture, deep gray walls and a transitional dining area. The end result is a sleek, modern space fit for the ultimate city dweller.

What were the main items on the owner’s wish list?

This apartment was modeled for a musician bachelor. He wanted a simple concept with contemporary details.

Classically Gray & Black

The overall design of the space is made modern by a deep gray color palette, casual bar seating and sleek furniture.

Natural Lighting

The large living room windows add much-needed light to the living room's otherwise dark decor.

Have a Seat

Leather armchairs provide additional seating to the living room's leather couch.

Room to Room

The apartment's open design allows for an easy transition between the living and dining spaces.

Dining With a View

Have a Drink

A sideboard turned bar provides ample space for a wine cellar and countertop drink preparation.

What was your biggest obstacle in this space?

If anything the apartment had little lighting, so we had to install lighting fixtures throughout the living room and dining room ceiling.

What are the hidden gems in your plan?

Particular artwork was featured throughout the apartment, and there is character in every section. A great highlight in this space was the black 3-D wall panel in the hallway.
