The Aldyn (60 Riverside Boulevard), one of the fancy behemoth buildings owned by Extell, is getting a makeover. The CFDA has partnered with designers and interior decorators to create several designer show homes in the building.
According to the Editor at Large , designers Diane von Furstenberg, Elie Tahari, Nicole Miller, Jeffrey Banks, Liz Lange, and Tiffany & Co (designed by Lambertson & Truex) will turn their runway looks into home interiors. This could be really interesting. Diamond encusted door knobs? (Tiffany) Crazy prints? (DvF). And Liz Lange designs maternity so who knows what her room will look like.
All kidding aside, Jonathan Adler and a whole host of interior designers who I never heard of–apologies to them–are involved, too, so I’m sure it’s going to be very tasteful. I don’t think you can actually purchase or live in these homes.
The rooms will be feted at a party on September 16, and after that will be open to the public from September 21 through December 10. For a mere $25, you can see how really rich people decorate their homes. The $25 admission fee goes to the CFDA Foundation, which is the philanthropic arm of the CFDA and provides funds to many worthy causes (breast cancer, AIDS, etc.).
Real estate porn and fashion all mixed together?? I’m definitely going to take a peek.
