Acclaimed New York City designers Carrier and Company Interiors, GRADE and Tamara Magel created three model residences in Related Companies’ Carnegie Park residential condominium tower on NYC’s Upper East Side.

“We tasked each designer to create distinct vignettes within our one and two bedroom residences so buyers could envision what it would be like to truly live at Carnegie Park,” said Benjamin Joseph, senior vice president of Related Companies. “The result is three homes that feature stylish furnishings and maximize space, while also giving buyers design ideas for their future homes.”

The apartment designed by Carrier and Company Interiors used tailored details and bold juxtapositions to create an atmosphere of sophisticated comfort and style. A living room with oversized furniture and a console table that doubles as a bar makes for easy entertaining, and contemporary artwork adds accent colors. The bedroom features a tribal influence, with a graphic long-pile carpet and a textured grasscloth wallcovering.

GRADE’s offering was designed with form and function in mind, and intended for a trendy New York City family. Emphasizing natural light and open space, GRADE juxtaposed wood and plush fabrics and pillows with chrome accents and sleek surfaces. Blues and whites were used in the children’s room to create a space designed for both play and rest. Rest and relaxation were also the watchwords for the master bedroom, which strove to maximize light and space by relying on clean lines, neutral tones and texturized wallcoverings.

Tamara Magel used textiles and materials from around the world, including knits, macramé, beads, natural stone and bleached woods, all to create a Hamptons-chic environment. The combination of natural materials and clean lines came together to form a distinct, comfortable look. To optimize the space of the one-bedroom apartment, Magel included a built-in desk and banquette table in the living room and dining room.

“I wanted to create something chic but comfortable and subtle,” said Magel. “I didn’t want the surroundings to close in so I kept things light and airy and opted for subtle textures to create interest without being distracting.”

The 31-story Carnegie Park is located at 200 E. 94th Street, and has been redesigned by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. The 325 homes range from studios to four-bedroom apartments, and include access to a private half-acre park and playground, among other amenities. More information can be found online.
