Soon after moving to New York in the early 1990s, a major television producer purchased a quintessential Manhattan residence – a loft. The loft needed to be designed and decorated for frequent entertaining. So the owner called Barry, a childhood friend who had already designed two previous residences for him. As soon as Barry toured the loft, he knew his challenge was clear: make a small space function like something much larger – an apartment where one could have a hundred for cocktails at the drop of a hat yet also be intimate and inviting for day-to-day living.
