A Vogue-approved Tribeca loft just hit the rental market, and it’s pretty dreamy.
Fashion designer Erin Fetherston is offering her airy Tribeca condo in the Sugar Warehouse building, furnished or empty, with a $22,995-a-month price tag attached.
Fetherston, who was raised in San Francisco, moved to Paris for five years before she made her way to New York in 2007, settling into this three-bedroom, 3.5-bath loft at 79 Laight Street, which she purchased at the age of 26 for $4.33 million.
“I see it as a reflection of my creative universe,” Fetherston, who adorned the home in couches from ABC Home, as well as Bergère-style chairs that she selected at a Paris auction and shipped over to New York, told Vogue. “It’s romantic and chic, but clean and modern.”
The prewar abode is full of “rare antiques” and “stylish furniture,” says the listing shared by Town Residential brokers Asaf Bar-Lev and Deirdre Scott. The apartment does look quite, well, fashionable, and is decorated with lots of gold-adorned mirrors, taupe and beige furnishings, and metallic side tables, per the listing photos.
“[Fetherston] is living in L.A. now—she’s focusing on being there,” Bar-Lev told the Observer of the designer, who welcomed her first child with her husband, Gabe Saporta, in February. While this 3,555-square-foot Tribeca condo doesn’t exactly seem to be lacking for space, perhaps they’re looking for a more child-friendly apartment, since we must say, the rather delicate (and very, very beige) décor chosen for this particular space might not be ideal for a toddler.
The condo is accessed through a private keyed elevator, and features double-height ceilings and an open chef’s kitchen. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the great room, where one can also check out the aforementioned views of the Hudson River. There’s also a Holly Hunt candle chandelier hanging in the living room—not to worry, it runs on electricity, so the loft’s potential new inhabitant won’t have to climb atop any furniture to light each individual candle.
“It is not catered to everyone, because of the price point and the space,” Bar-Lev admitted. “It’s for somebody looking for something very aesthetically pleasing. It’s very serene—you have direct water views.” And, of course, there’s closet space aplenty—Fetherston previously said that she used one of the closets simply as an “archive,” to use while working and in need of inspiration.
“It’s for someone who wants to be in the best location,” Bar-Lev opined, “and very relaxed—it’s like an oasis in the city!”
