Look inside the Kwinter & Co. designed Woodstock cabin featured in Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine™ Winter 2014 issue.
The 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom weekend home was reworked to open up the floor plan putting the focus on the original cabin space and lends to hosting. “They love to cook and entertain and are big on group activities,” designer and Kwinter & Co.’s founder, Brendan Kwinter-Schwartz told Luxe. The owners, a Manhattan-based couple, hold everything from dinner parties to paintball shootouts in the woods on the property.
“Fresh, sophisticated and hip, with a little campy glamour thrown in,” the lounge-like vibe includes a pair of custom Avery Boardman sofas, a vintage pressed-crocodile Karl Springer table from Lobel Modern and a custom Kwinter & Co. designed fixture made by Remains Lighting.
Mongolian lamb from Kwinter & Co.’s private collection covers the owner’s existing bench, complimented by a B&B Italia sofa and vintage Karl Springer coffee table from Lobel Modern.
In the Master Bedroom the Kwinter & Co. designed nailhead-detailed, wall-to-wall headboard, fabricated by Avery Boardman is offset by a David Weeks fixture from Ralph Pucci, custom sconces from Marsia Holzer Studio and a photograph by Elger Esser from Hamburg Kennedy Photographs.
A work by Richard Serra from Barbara Krakow Gallery above Marimekko linens and vintage kilims bring life to a bedroom. Precipice Denali wallpaper from Flat Vernacular accent the bathroom with a Kwinter & Co. designed, poured concrete sink fabricated by hand by the builder, John Bilotti.

I thought I would give you a sneak peek of a presentation I am putting together for a client’s entryway. I like to show different choices for each item, such as the chandelier, but always my two top picks first. I also like to get the budget together prior to the presentation so that the client can see what each item will cost and then the total for the space with all of the elements. It is a little like a jigsaw puzzle figuring which finishes and furniture to go with, but I find if there is a rendering and pictures of each item set out before the client they can visualize it.
