Behind the Design

Designer to the Rescue: Fawn Galli

In an apartment on Central Park West, New York decorator Fawn Galli inserts a pair of glass walls to maximize the flow of light and turn a dark interior kitchen into the perfect spot for morning coffee.


In the living area of an Upper West Side apartment by Fawn Galli Interiors, a wall of fluted Bendheim glass in a blackened steel frame allows abundant light from the living area, which has views of Central Park, to penetrate to the entry and, through a second glass wall, to the kitchen beyond. The furnishings were deliberately chosen to brighten the space and not restrict the flow of light. The custom sofa is upholstered in an Hermes velvet, the side table is by Plexi-Craft, and the lamp is by Robert Mallet-Stevens.

The kitchen floor is stained concrete, the wall light is by Dimore Studio, and a table by Eero Saarinen is paired with schoolhouse chairs found at the Paris flea market.

The ebonized dining table is by Fiona McDonald, the white Italian modernist dining chairs are from Karl Kemp Antiques; the black chairs at the head and foot of the table are by Tom Dixon, and the light fixture by Florian Schulz is from Miel Gallery.
