For a Hudson Yards Apartment, Elena Frampton Goes Bold with Pattern and Contrast

PROJECT NAME Residence
LOCATION New York
FIRM Frampton Co
SQ. FT. 2,200 SQF

“The creative energy in Chelsea has always captivated and inspired me,” Elena Frampton says. Though her eponymous firm Frampton Co has developed a signature blend of quirk and luxury in residences throughout New York City, it’s this model apartment for Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell's Group's 15 Hudson Yards high-rise on Chelsea’s north edge that might be its boldest work yet.

The 2,200 square feet embrace juxtaposition: in the living area, for example, she covered minimalist Milo Baughman lounge chairs with maximalist faux-malachite upholstery and placed them near a space-age floor lamp by Brazzoli & Lampa for Harvey Guzzini. “We used a high-contrast between colors, textures and art elements to create a fresh way to live,” she says.

And because it’s Chelsea, art is a main focus, with pieces by Jonathan Smith and Irby Pace, mixed with eye-popping wall coverings, such as the study’s expanse of peacocks by Fardis, a work of art in itself.
