Our friends at Dering Hall take us through one of Pappas Miron’s colorful projects in Manhattan. Spot the various transformed textiles found at the D&D Building in the story below.
As they proved in their living room at this year’s Kips Bay Showhouse, Alexandra Pappas and Tatyana Miron of Pappas Miron have a knack for infusing tradition with freshness and exuberant color. In an Upper East Side prewar apartment for a young family with two boys, the duo created vibrant, luxurious rooms that work for both grand occasions and everyday relaxation.
The living room is spacious enough to encompass two seating areas. On the more formal side, a sofa by DeAngelis is upholstered in a Holland & Sherry velvet, and the vintage chairs are covered in sheepskin by Edelman Leather; the coffee table is a custom design, and the rug is by Beauvais Carpets.
On the opposite side of the living room, designed for everyday family gatherings, the custom sectional is covered in a Manuel Canovas fabric, the vintage chair is upholstered in a Fortuny fabric, the linen-wrapped coffee table is by Matthews & Parker, and an inlaid hall table from Sutter Antiques is topped with a Christopher Spitzmiller lamp fitted with a custom shade made from a Claremont fabric.

The entry hall is sheathed in a custom Gracie silk wallpaper. The antique console is from Balsamo Antiques, the Oushak rug is from Chaman Antique Rugs, and the custom mirror is by Steven Amedee.
The dining room/library features an antique table large enough to serve as a work table. The chairs were found at Doyle Auctions, a sisal carpet from Beauvais Carpets is layered with an antique rug from Chaman Antique Rugs, and the custom light fixture is from Nicholas Antiques.
