Kips Bay Decorator Show House Part I

This year's Kips Bay Decorator Show House, as many of you all know by now, has moved to the West Side from the usual home or town house to a two duplex at The Aldyn Residences located on Riverside Boulevard between 62nd and 63th Streets.  I love this change especially because it's more true to a New York living style. 
I'm starting my cover of this year's Kips Bay Decorator Show House with the living room designed by Bunny Williams, Brian J. McCarthy and David Kleinberg  since it's a tribute to the late Albert Hadley.  As the three designers worked for Albert Hadley I couldn't expect nothing short of the fabulous as this room is.  I imagine it must  be a little hard to work jointly with equally talented people, everyone has an idea of their one, but they did it flawless and I think the mix of cosmopolitan furniture and scale of the room is exactly like something Mr. Hadley would've done himself.

A 6,000 foot duplex that has a private swimming pool on the 22nd floor surely will have some big column support here and there.  I love what they did with the one in this room, they did a black Venetian plaster finish which continued up to the ceiling making it almost disappear.  I imagine it disappears even more at nights.
