Arnold Studio blends classic leather furniture
The New York City-based, Arnold Studio is a full-service architecture and design practice that focuses on building environments that reinvent the traditional and seek new relationships to construct unique experiences.
A committed team behind the studio works to help people in every phase of the design and development process of transferring or transforming in an economic and sustainable way.
Arnold Studio designed this Brooklyn practice: a light-filled apartment inside a historic brick house in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of the borough.
Placed in the historic area of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, in a grand 19th century mansion, the house occupies two floors at the top of the structure and within the roofline. The redesign included a gut renovation including significant structural steps to eliminate interior walls that had traditionally been used to divide traditional living spaces.
Built as a grand mansion, the house, with a variety of architectural elements, has a red brick and stone exterior.
Speaking about interior design, we all know there is nothing like the feel of a sofa or chair in leather. And there's nothing like the smell of fine leather furniture, as any leather connoisseur can tell you.
Quality leather sofas and armchairs like the ones we see in this spot, have the attributes are incredibly comfortable, especially when combined with supportive frames and soft cushioning. Leather is tough but flexible, meaning it naturally resists punctures and tears and, because of its natural properties, it remains strong even around seams.
The Clinton Residence project occupies the upper two floors of a four-story brick home that dates back to the 1800s, so of course, the perfect match for the interior is a leather sofa and an LC2 armchair that can last up to four times longer than a fabric couch.
The LC2 armchair is timeless, unique, and truly authentic. It has played a part in the evolution of furniture design, being a worldwide symbol. This armchair, created to enhance dialogue, was exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in Paris in 1929 as an archetype of contemporary furniture architecture called by its designers "domestic equipment."
So, next time you are thinking about buying new furniture for your house, follow Arnold Studios, consider these properties, and to find out that leather is always a good choice.
