NT TIMES T Magazine / 1980s Interior

April 4, 2018

For this week’s New York Times T Magazine’s Culture Issue, we recreated (and pulled back on) “a typically stylish early 198Os apartment in New York City, replete with design totems of the era. Uptown or downtown? More so than now, the type of life one lived in the city was determined by just where on the island one was. ‘Uptown’ and ‘downtown’ were still meaningful terms, with apartment decor signaling strict allegiance to either region.”
