Designer Visit: Fiyel Levent and Rebecca Thienes in Manhattan
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
New York-based architect Fiyel Levent and interior designer Rebecca Thienes recently collaborated on a pied-a-terre in the iconic Manhattan House on New York's Upper East Side. With only three months to complete the project, Levent and Theines relied primarily on quick-ship and in-stock items from retailers like Design Within Reach and Knoll to achieve the crisp minimal interiors that reflect the heritage of the 1950s landmarked building.
