In its March issue—I guess my subscription lapsed—New York Cottages & Gardens featured the Tribeca apartment of jewelry and fur designer Jennifer Fisher; her husband, Kevin, who works on Wall Street; and their son (Shane, 6) and daughter (Drew, 5).
••• “The area’s profusion of dark, warehouse-like spaces didn’t hold much initial appeal until they finally came upon what is now their light-flooded, 4,100-square-foot apartment, with nearly floor-to-ceiling arched windows and north-, south-, and east-facing exposures.” I bet!
••• His-and-her sinks (my partner is dying with envy right now), poured concrete floors, and big bare-boob art.
••• A downside to loft living: “We have three televisions,” says Fisher, “but they’re basically all in the same room.”
••• “A good friend, interior designer Michelle Gerson [...] designed the family room cocktail table. ‘I wanted python,’ says Fisher, ‘but it had to be kid-proof [....] Michelle found an amazing python-print vinyl—you can spill anything on it and wipe it right off—and added a Lucite tray to the top.’”
••• “From the shower she can assess the weather through the bank of windows on one side and then turn her head to select her outfit for the day from the opposite wall.”
••• The kitchen has a “room-sized pantry, with its own freezer and two freezer drawers.” Maybe that’s where she stores the minks before she skins them…?
••• Her son’s room has Roy Lichtenstein lithographs.
••• She cleans out her closet to relax. Me, too! Seriously!
The photographs are by Peter Murdock. The text is by Hope Greenberg, whom I Googled to see if I could find a website to link to—her LinkedIn profile says she’s a PR consultant for Jennifer Fisher Jewelry.
