Contemporary Condo With a View, HGTV

HGTV asked interior designer Tara Benet to discuss her choices for a recent interior design project in a Manhattan highrise. The home, framed by sweeping New York City views that included Central Park, presented a few challenges—for example, having just a single ceiling socket for a chandelier. “We had to do sculptural, high-wattage floor lamps that would adequately light the space without subtracting from the minimal design,” said Benet. She complemented the serene minimalism of the space’s hardwood and marble claddings with sprays of color, fur throws, and chairs to create both a visual and textural contrast.
