Daddy's Darling Manhattan Maven

"I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family - and I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually."
~Frank Sinatra
 As an ode to Father's day and in honor of all the dads past, present, and future out there here is a decidedly masculine Manhattan man-haven design post highlighting an industrial and danish modern flair fit for any suave and savvy daddy:
Set the Stage: Tribeca or Financial District Manhattan apartment; large windows (a rarity); industrial feel; exposed pipes and conduit; stained and sealed concrete floors; exposed and weathered brick; track lighting highlighting the various features; sleek, modern, white Ikea kitchen cabinetry; stacked travertine back splash
vintage Czech industrial bar stool with beautiful green legs; and graphic industrial bell clock lining the window sill

This bold industrial sign made of wood and steel will sit atop the kitchen upper cabinets for added light and drama


Our large (I'm talking 50"x 70") Wings over Manhattan poster from the preview post last week framing out a breakfast nook/ reading area outside the kitchen and a fabulous danish modern teak table with tailored black leather seats (bonus: these chairs fit into the side of the table for extra space when not in use) and stunning statement industrial chandelier (unbelievably gorgeous in its simplicity)



Also framed out by this grandiose picture is this fabulous Corbusier- feeling and worn leather chaise, a balancing side table, danish modern floor lamp with a graceful yet assertive shape; and a cowhide rug reminiscent of a Rorschach inkblot with it's soft and subtle watercolor spot application




and somewhere in the corner next to the chaise will be propped against the wall a vintage golf bag and these AMAZING Persimmon wood clubs because, well it's almost Father's Day.


Take some time this week (not just on Father's Day) to celebrate and enjoy time with,  reminisce, remember, and honor the memory of, or cuddle and wait in anticipation of Fatherhood.

Always and Forever Daddy's Little Girl,
