The Studio occupies a stunning space at the corner of 57th Street and 3rd Avenue, with sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal our most innovative display yet of modern design. Occupying three floors, it’s the largest Studio in New York and among the largest of all. The main attraction is The Apartment, a 900-square-foot glass-encased room dramatically suspended high above the entrance and accessible by footbridge. It aims to present the ultimate New York City apartment furnished in a modern way. We hope you’ll walk inside and say, “I could live here!” As in The Apartment, items throughout the Studio are arranged in “rooms” and “houses” to help you envision how they might fit in your home. The Dining Test Lab has 50 iconic dining chairs available for test drives, and 25 full-room vignettes show pieces in context. Other eye-catching features include the pendant Light Cloud, Design Library Swatch Wall of 500 upholstery tiles and Media Wall, as well as broad selections of outdoor, café and office solutions. The Studio is just blocks from MoMA and steps away from the D&D and A&D buildings. Proprietor Coleman Johnson oversees the Studio with his friendly and knowledgeable sales associates.

DWR STUDIO EVENT
Midcentury Houses Today celebrates
icons of modernism.Thursday, October 30, 7-9pm
Join us for a panel discussion and book signing to celebrate the publication of Midcentury Houses Today. Architects Jeffrey Matz and Cristina A. Ross, photographer Michael Biondo and graphic designer Lorenzo Ottaviani collaborated to create this lavishly illustrated book, which presents 16 icons of residential modernism in New Canaan, Connecticut. Many of these houses – designed by the likes of Philip Johnson, Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, Eliot Noyes, Edward Durell Stone and others – have never before been publicly viewed.
We’ll welcome the four authors to the Studio for a panel discussion moderated by John Morris Dixon. Dixon, the former editor of Progressive Architecture magazine, is on the board of Docomomo and wrote the book’s introduction. The evening will offer opportunities to learn, ask questions, purchase the book and enjoy refreshments with like-minded design fans.
