Is it loft-pepping season or what? The July issue of Architectural Digest features the 4,000-square-foot Tribeca loft of Yoon Kim: “Kim first enlisted a decorator to give the apartment a 1970s Pop feel (vividly colored walls, lipstick-red upholstered seating, silver-ball chandeliers)—but the result, Kim soon realized, screamed of overdesign. [...] He chose to start over from scratch. And then he left his hedge-fund job to pursue investing on his own.” Kim hired David Mann and Brett McMullen of MR Architecture + Décor. “The scheme that emerged would turn out to be part Breuer, part Neutra, part retro-futuristic bachelor pad.” Take a look for yourself; the hanging bed with mink blanket is a statement.
