You won’t have to think too hard about where Thanksgiving will be hosted this year because the 70 Charlton residences in SoHo are designed for celebrations. But instead of spending hours cooking or paying for a caterer, have your friends and family over for a potluck-inspired holiday. Ask them to bring their favorite dish or dishes. Without the stress of pulling together a whole Thanksgiving meal, you can devote more time to entertaining with panache by creating a decor and atmosphere that will get everyone in the festive spirit.
70 Charlton’s SoHo condominiums provide the perfect canvas on which to imprint your aesthetic signature, especially with furniture from Ochre. Contemporary designs and clean lines are the name of the game at Ochre, but with a depth and warmth unheard of in other modern collections. It all comes down to materials that are luxurious and of the finest quality. Color schemes lean toward the classic, with variants of navy and pink and grey—and the occasional white leather that eases into aging without becoming dingy (think mushroom hues; not marshmallow). Follow your selections with lighting aptly named—light drizzle, beach pebble, seed cloud, and arctic pear, just to highlight a few—to precisely describe the achieved shape and ambience of the light and/or lamp, and you’ll soon find your expansive luxury space well-appointed but maintaining its openness; filling your home to the point of coziness without clutter. That’s a magic all its own.
Quality furniture deserves quality accents. To complete your look, the first and last stop in SoHo for the finest linens, décor, and occasional pieces from the world’s best designers is Gracious Home. SFERRA bedding, Antica Farmacista diffusers, and Jay Strongwater jeweled decorative items bring subtle touches that can tell an entire story for those willing to gaze a bit longer. Holtkoetter lamps, Tizo picture frames, and the uniqueness of Studio A mirrors provide timeless elegance that will mesh with whatever direction you choose to take for your 70 Charlton home, and they’re likely to survive deep into the next redesign of your living space! And for that Black Friday morning when you decide to lounge with the paper and your coffee instead of fighting the crowds at your favorite department store, invest in an Abyss & Habidecor Pousada robe. Complete your bath and the plushness of that experience with Alizee towels for a splash of color and a touch of fun.
The Turkish glass or sperm whale platter? Egyptian alabaster or sea life plates? Frog or panda mugs? If these sound like delightful decisions to be made, then you’ll love Global Table. Selected by New York Magazine as the “best” of mix and match tableware and heralded by many other magazines—including O, The Oprah Magazine; Vogue; Elle Decor; InStyle; Food & Wine; and Bon Appetit—Global Table is the perfect spot to begin readying your table for a potluck-style holiday. Place flair at the center of your buffet with antler candlesticks and plum porcelain vases and fit up the food line with painted appetizer plates in sparks, hatch, or pinwheel motifs. While you won’t find delicate stemware in stock, a wide selection of Italian, Spanish, and etched glass tumblers and barware means that you’ll find something perfect for the heavier beverages of the harvest season, especially those meads and ales that reinvigorate turkey in a way that wines of Zinfandel and Cabernet never could. However, if vino is on your menu, bring home an oak ball carafe as a testament to your playfulness and a tip of the hat to the eclectic feast before you.
