All in a Daybed’s Work: Laura Bohn Goes Shopping in the New York Times

This week I was delighted to be asked by the New York Times to choose eight daybeds for their “Shopping  With . . .” column. The assignment was a lot of fun and I think I was able to find some great pieces.

Back in the News: A Fresh Look at Two Bruce Bierman Apartments

I was very pleased to see two projects I designed a few years back receiving notice this month in very different contexts. The first is the Palm Beach apartment below:

It is featured on the American Hardwood Information Center‘s website in an Insights from the Experts column by Wendy Silverstein that discusses how I make extensive use of oak for floors and cabinetry throughout the apartment. Click here to read the full story.

The second apartment is this penthouse in Chelsea, New York, that I designed late last decade. It has a lot of great Sonia Delaunay art, which I blogged about here, and has been published extensively before:

The apartment is getting renewed attention because it’s currently for sale. But what’s really gratifying is that the real estate listing in the New York Times gives me full credit for the design of the loft, which can be bought with all the furnishings included:
