One of my favorite things about the foyer is the light fixture. The crystal fixture that had been there now lives in the guest bedroom.
More about the door on the right in the next post.
The lower cabinets on the right were built to handle hanging files and a printer. For some reason, NYC code now forbids an outlet inside such cabinets, so there's a cut out in the marble shelf to allow a cord to come up to an outlet that is behind some of the picture frames.
The cabinets on the left are the new bar.
No bar carts here.
Up above are some of the artifacts and trophies my uncle has collected during years of living abroad.
Now it's time for you to play designer a little bit. My aunt and uncle are still looking for a nicely scaled desk and chair to go on the right wall. Got any suggestions?
Needless to say, the 50+ year old apartment wasn't wired for all of today's needs, so they updated the electrical system and added internet wiring during the renovation.
