Interiors: Bill Indursky's Black Apartment

Bill Indursky is the founder of VandM, an amazing site that is similar to 1stdibs  but with more international dealers and lower priced merchandise. Bill lives with his partner and dog in a 350 square foot (!!!) apartment in Chelsea (New York City).

We did a house tour of Bill’s nearly all-black space forr ApartmentTherapy last year. The responses were very divisive.

    I love the concept… to be honest I think I modestly “loathe” the flowered upholstered chair… it doesn’t seem to fit??

      The chair seems to be the only item in the space that has a pattern on it. I think it pulls in the tan colours in the artwork. The black is so dramatic in such a small space.

    I also think the floral chair stuck out like ‘ a sore thumb’. I am a fan of white – and making this space look smaller than it is in black…? I don’t know. It really comes down to personal perception. Me – I love wear black though I prefer to live in white 🙂

      Hey Marina – I’m with you – I definitely prefer white in small spaces (but then again – my blog is all about white design). But you can also find me dressed in black (not white) on most days of the week.

    I love print but I’m not sure about the chair. I think that the issue here is that the print is fun but dated and would look fantastic-er if it were on a modern piece. Here, because the chair is old-school reminiscent of The Brick furniture, it falls a bit flat.

    In other thoughts, I wouldn’t be feeling good living in a black apartment- I need light and I need brightness. I dream of living in a white cabana, so these black walls and drapes just wouldn’t work for me.
