Get ready to get inspired by NYC … Gilt Home’s Apartment Week kicks off Monday, April 7th. We’ll have one sale every day, each inspired by a different NYC abode. From downtown chic to uptown classic, a range of styles is on offer here… so you can pick which one speaks to you (or don’t be afraid to blend a few). Without further ado, here’s the menu:
Monday: A decidedly downtown, subtly industrial-chic vibe defines this selection of furnishings and accents. The key to creating the Soho-loft aesthetic is to mix textures and styles, but keep things neutral (i.e., an antiqued metal box against a simply framed black-and-white cityscape print, or a sleek, orb-like contemporary sofa in gray, softened by a plush sandy-hued rug). Here, you’ll find everything from furniture to art and accents — we’ve curated the look for you, so you can choose what inspires you and come up with your own take on urban-boho style.
Tuesday: An updated-classic look that’s sophisticated yet eminently livable: That’s the look that defines the modern-day Brooklyn brownstone. We’ve put together a selection of furnishings, bedding, lighting, art, and accents, all inspired by this aesthetic. Each piece is distinguished by its attention to detail, texture, and structure — think classic lines and styles reinterpreted with unexpected details, bold colors, and eye-catching prints.
Wednesday: Energetic, eclectic, colorful, and undoubtedly bohemian: that blend of styles typifies the archetypal East Village studio: the apartment that inspires this sale. We’ve selected quite the mix — think bold chairs, peace-sign pillows and piggybanks, colored-glass vases, and coffee-table books with a rockin’ edge — to get you started on your quest for an arty-chic environment perfect for hanging out or entertaining guests in.
Thursday: We’ve curated a sale based around the Park Avenue penthouse of our dreams: classic and sophisticated, yet with enough fresh, contemporary edge to keep things interesting. Classic-with-a-twist seating, statement-making accent tables, tufted beds, and luxe metallic accents all add up to an elegant-yet-energetic aesthetic. It’s an undoubtedly uptown look with just a touch of “I-picked-that-lamp-up-on-a-trip-downtown.”
Friday: Airy, light-filled, sleek, and modern — that’s what comes to mind when we think of the high-rise apartment buildings down in the Financial District. With that image as our inspiration, we picked a range of furnishings and accents designed to complement the visual drama and sweeping vistas that an apartment in the sky affords. (Imagine steely-hued bedding, geometric-print pillows, modern overhead lighting, and orb-shaped bar stools, and you’re there.)
