David Scott Interiors
Supertall buildings are a sign of the times, at least in New York City, where hometown designer David Scott was tasked with making a place in the clouds for clients who had scored an apartment with a bank of curved, full-height windows. Scott’s decisive move — across the ocean to Denmark — was a little unexpected. But he had a plan. “The goal was to create serenity, snugness and understated elegance,” he explains. “The Danish concept of hygge [cozy comfort] was applied to this gleaming glass high rise” translated into a custom Jules Leleu–style carpet from Doris Leslie Blau, plush handwoven textiles and a range of pieces from 1stDibs dealer Hostler Burrows, including Ralph Dorazio’s sculpted wood column and a vintage cocktail table. Lighting by Pelle adds an ethereal touch to a room already warmed with Gotham’s glow. And a little hygge.
“Good design is about reflecting our clients’ desires for how they want to live and how they want to feel. Then, that richness can come through in everything we do.”
