Agra and Aegean in New York

Apartment Therapy recently featured an apartment at the late nineteenth century Archives Building in New York City’s West Village. Designed by HGTV Design Star finalist Michael Moeller for a young client, the furnishings include Theodore Alexander’s Agra campaign bookcases and oversized Aegean Octagonals mirror.

Four Agra bookcases have been styled together to create a functional and decorative feature. Campaign furniture by Theodore Alexander is inspired by the furniture used by young English army officers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and these bookcases are perfect for this bachelor pad in a historic building.

Vintage books contrast against modern accessories, vintage cameras and softly glowing candles within the many shelves of the Agra bookcases.

The client, being a young, successful gentleman, was eager to settle into his space. This was truly his first “grown up” apartment, so he wanted to really make it his home. Michael guided him through the design process, encouraging him to invest appropriately in furnishings he would take with him for years to come. His client’s love for photography and his Texas roots inspired Michael to hunt out the perfect spots for his photography to hang, find vintage cameras to adorn bookshelves, and scatter about hides and taxidermy. The client’s taste for vintage industrial elements, stately character, and contextual throwbacks to New York was easy for Michael to work with.

On the opposing wall Michael has placed Aegean Octagonals, a statement mirror that is large enough to create depth in this narrow space.
