The design gallery furnishes its first residential "jewel box" at 100 Franklin in Tribeca
David Alhadeff’s contemporary design gallery, The Future Perfect, has joined forces with real estate developers DDG to create 100 Franklin Street, a razor-edged brick building in the Tribeca East Historic District. The lot, which was formerly a parking facility, is now home to two triangular buildings linked together by an intricate facade of handmade bricks made by Danish outfit Petersen Tegl, wedging itself perfectly into this sliver of city space. 100 Franklin features 10 private full-floor homes, one of which was furnished by The Future Perfect to emphasize the building’s daring architecture.
This marks the first time that Alhadeff, known for moving into his Casa Perfect galleries in Beverly Hills and Greenwich Village, will furnish a residential building. With the help of designers repped by The Future Perfect like Chris Wolston and Charles De Lisle, Alhadeff lends a modern touch to this historic district building.
“100 Franklin is a jewel box,” Alhadeff says. “The building is flatiron-shaped and we decided to emphasize this by drawing your eye straight to the northern corner with a mobile from artist Karl Zahn. The curtains by Calico emulate the sunrise. The soft neutral palette of De La Espada furniture sets the tone—enveloping one in a warm, luxurious, and ultimately comfortable space to call home.”
For those who are seriously considering calling 100 Franklin home, sales for the building begin today. For this little slice of Tribeca real estate, the future has truly never looked so perfect.
