New York Fashion Week hires interior designers for Star Lounge
on Friday,February 12,2010 21:02
Interior designers Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams will be making their New York Fashion Week debut this year, but their latest creations will be appearing off the runway.
The masterminds behind the home furnishings store Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams were asked to design the Mercedez-Benz Star Lounge, which will serve as a venue for designers, celebrities, VIPs, media representatives and invited guests to rub elbows with one another, Interior Design magazine reports.
Gold and Williams gained inspiration for the lounge from event sponsor Mercedes-Benz's SLS AMG model, which is a modern version of the brand's Gullwing sports car.
The designers lined the walls of the lounge with the work of British fashion photographer Nick Knight, including an image of German model Julia Stegner on the hood of one of the sponsor's cars.
Guests to the lounge will have their choice of seating on white faux suede couches from the designers' Dr Pitt line or leather barstools and the white vinyl-tufted bar. The light coloring of the furniture is offset by red accent pillows and gunmetal-colored ottomans.
These designs are an ample contrast to the lounge's design for the fall show, which featured custom green, blue and taupe wallpaper from New York City-based design firm Rollout.
