    Default A well-curated space

    Donald Albrecht, the curator of architecture and design at the Museum of the City of New York, lives in a prewar one-bedroom apartment at Southgate, a set of five Art Deco buildings on East 52nd and 51st Streets. He has filled his place with furnishings and decorative accents that vividly conjure the golden age of the Manhattan apartment house.











    An Eames leg splint, a peculiar-looking plywood device created to
    help World War II soldiers, hangs on the bedroom wall.

    Not for me, but it does suit him perfectly.

    i love the desk, the artwork over the fireplace and a couple of other pieces but overall it's a pretty dull place.
