A Design to Match

The Manhattan luxury condos of The Centrale are, well, at the center of everything in New York City — especially NYC style and design.

This luxury Midtown Manhattan condo building, designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, is dripping with both old New York charm and modern sophistication. And on the streets of tasteful and polished Midtown East, you're sure to find fashionable locals fluttering to parties, shops, and top-flight restaurants. But where you'll really see the effortless elegance of this singular neighborhood is in the homes of those who are lucky enough to live there.

At The Centrale, sun floods into roomy spaces laid out with modern living in mind. The open-concept floor plans give you a chance to enjoy breathtaking views of the city through floor-to-ceiling windows from almost anywhere in your home. The apartments here are a canvas for those with a decorative flair, and the high-end stores in the area will help you to make your interior design dreams a reality. Let’s take a look at a few notable examples of taste-defining shops where you can discover exceptionally beautiful items for your new Manhattan condo.

Calligaris | 220 East 57th Street

Since 1923, Calligaris has been synonymous with European interior style. What started as a single wooden chair design has blossomed into a company whose product can be found in only the chicest dwellings around the world. If you love bespoke and refined Italian design, this store might just be the place to look for that sleek dining room set.

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams | 1000 Third Avenue

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is the standard bearer for American-made handcrafted furniture. Their classic and comfortable furnishings can be seen on the pages of magazines, in the lobbies of world-class hotels, and in the homes of design lovers. Their expertly made furniture will give your home a Hollywood Regency feel without being stuffy. Their pieces are also very versatile. For example, their velvety Gigi sofa would be right at home with a French Provincial look or an ultra-modern minimalist space.

Design Within Reach | 957 Third Avenue

Those with a penchant for modernism have it all within reach at Design Within Reach. Affectionately known by those who run in design circles by just its initials, DWR is a paragon in the world of modern home furnishings with clean lines and comfort as their trademarks. Choose from their plush but understated Reid Collection that looks like a series of cubist paintings you can somehow stretch out and lounge upon. Or sink into their Outline sofas and chairs that pair stark silhouettes with buttery leather and rich cloth.

Scalamandré | 979 Third Avenue

The textile purveyor Scalamandré has been around for almost a hundred years, but the shop’s wares still have a fresh feel that can add a touch of class to any home. Known for their signature zebra-print wall coverings, Scalamandré also offers sumptuous fabrics to refresh your older pieces, as well as a line of furniture, including sofas, settees, and ottomans that are just waiting for you to choose the perfect pattern with which to drape them.
