The Duchess Admires . . .

The Home of Lela Rose and Brandon Jones

The October edition of Interior Design magazine featured the New York home of fashion designer Lela Rose and her husband, hedge fun manager Brandon Jones.  Rose and Jones, together with their children, live in a converted 6,000 square foot industrial space in an 1867 landmarked building, replete with skylights, a basement and subbasement.  They tasked their architects, Dan Wood and Amale Andraos (the husband-wife team of Work Architecture Company) with creating a livable space for family life that could double as a party/runway show location too.  The Duchess thinks Wood and Andraos succeeded in spades.

The children's shared bathroom, with epoxy floors.

The loft's living space.  Unsure where they hid their 52 inch television for watching football.

In the bar space, which connects the kitchen with the living area, a mechanical table lifts from the floor to seat 60 guests for dinner, or to serve as a runway for Rose's fashion shows.
