Since introducing her namesake firm in 2011, designer Jenny Norris has been transforming interiors with her laidback, minimalist style. With her keen eye for timeless furnishings and affinity for spatial balance, Norris used her shophouse collaboration with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams as an opportunity to make a bold statement with a few of their signature retro-glam pieces. By carving out defined spaces—living room, dining area, den, and so forth— throughout the airy two-bedroom home, Norris sprinkled the place with classic silhouettes, rich textiles and hip artwork to create a comfortable but cool ambience. “When I walked into the space it felt so lofty and sophisticated.” Norris explains. “My goal was to keep that airy ambience alive while creating a few glitzy moments. ”
Q&A with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams
How would you describe the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams apartment at 15 William?
It’s a very chic and stylish bachelor pad that is also notable for being incredibly comfortable. The space is very modern, but in a soft and soothing way, and the furnishings don’t take away from the incredible views.
What made this project especially fun for you?
We love all things Domino, and the opportunity to participate in a shophouse was especially appealing because it makes things so accessible to our customers. It gave us the chance to share not only our furniture but also our style of comfortable living with people.
What did you love most about what Jenny Norris did with the MG+BW pieces in the space?
Seeing how she combined our pieces with all of the wonderful photos she took in her travels and her own personal collectibles. For instance, in the den, Jenny flanked our high-gloss gray-lacquer Bel Air storage cabinet with industrially inspired Fritz bookcases. And in the bedroom she used a chandelier that we often show in our dining room settings. She mixed our pieces in unexpected ways.
Tell us something potential buyers would want to know?
It’s a well-planned space for everyday living as well as entertaining and overnight guests. You could move right in, add some personal collectibles of your own, and live your life in comfort and style.
