One of our favorite showrooms here in the city is SUITE New York. They have an impressive collection of furniture lines showcasing the newest and best in decorative arts and design. The project above is the home of Kris Fuchs who is the Co-Principal and Public Relations and Marketing Director for this high-end showroom and retail store. In the three years since SUITE New York’s founding, the company’s products and projects have appeared in over eighty high-profile magazines and newspapers. Kris flawlessly juggles her busy schedule as a mother of two, board member at MAD, and serious art and design collector. Her extensive collection served as an inspiration for designer Chris Kraig, whose vision for her home centered around the impression that one is entering a gallery (starting with the Donald Bachelor sculpture in the front entrance).
As an award-winning interior designer, Chris Kraig has created residential model apartments, corporate offices, lobbies, private residences and trade show installations. Kraig’s background includes the creative development of ABC Carpet and Home’s modern floor and curating group design shows at 888 Broadway. He's a member of the steering committee of Brooklyn Designs and also a contributing editor at City magazine. His work has been published in Elle Decor, House and Garden, Interior Design, New York and numerous other magazines, and has also been featured on national television. Besides being a true talent, we also consider Chris a good friend here at DT. Hope you enjoy this remarkable project as much as we did (photos by David Mann-click on image to enlarge).
