THE LANGHAM

The Langham Mansion is a residential building on Central Park West and was famously home to Mia Farrow and Woody Allen.  Interestingly, Hannah's apartment, in Hannah and Her Sisters, was actually filmed in Mia Farrow's apartment at The Langham.

 

The clients were downsizing after 35 years from a 10-room apartment on the 9th floor to a 6-room ground floor apartment.  The move required a lot of editing of furniture and art, as well as an update of their aesthetic in terms of some new furniture and reupholstery.  New light fixtures replaced the historical fixtures, but the intact architectural detailing was very much celebrated.  Oak shutters were installed to both capture views of the park and to block traffic sight lines on Central Park West.  The clients were able to marry their heirloom treasures (such as a Biedermeier table and antique glassware) with new designs such as Vonnegut Kraft's modern daybed or an Italian fiberglass pendant over the dining table.  Vintage pieces were also added that best complemented some of their existing furniture.  Some of these included the Milo Baughman dining chairs, a Lion in Frost side table, and Arthur Umanoff bar stools.
