Model Unit, 56 Leonard

A striking building like 56 Leonard deserves equally impressive interiors, which is why Tara Benet Design was tapped to bring life to the building’s model home. Benet paid homage to the building’s charm with classic pieces like the Eames Chair, bringing in wood and leather textures to contrast against the structural concrete columns that punctuate sheets of floor-to-ceiling glass. Benet’s signature use of varied textures and bursts of color keeps the eye focused on the cityscape outside while creating an interior that is light and airy as well as sophisticated and modern.
