Steal This Look: A Parlor Floor Dining Room in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn

September 26, 2023

In the expert renovation of a three-story townhouse in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, architects Also Office focused the historic parlor level with restored architectural woodwork and newly plastered walls, along with base and crown mouldings. When designers Colony came in with midcentury design classics, vintage finds, and modern European furniture, the parlor was the perfect blank canvas. Here we profile the key elements of the townhouse dining room and small seating area making up the front half of the parlor floor.
