The Trunk Club, located in the iconic Mansion on Madison building in New York City provides a sanctuary for men and women to browse clothing and accessories with a personal shopper in a relaxed, tranquil environment. Stewart-Schafer was commissioned to design the Trunk Club’s parlor room, a stunning 2500 square foot space featuring a lounge and a bar that welcomes guests upon arrival.
Their vast knowledge of retail design enabled them to transform the customer’s shopping experience into an escape from the bustling city where they could relax, read, or grab a drink in a luxurious, one-of-a-kind environment matching the brand’s aesthetic. Influenced by university clubs of the 1900’s, Stewart-Schafer used an elegantly austere color palette of navy, olive green, deep brown, and shades of grey to create an old-world European-inspired feel to the space.
Paired with luxe custom furnishings and fixtures, the unique history of the building comes to life with a contemporary and masculine twist. Stewart-Schafer kept the unique original details of the 100 year old building and customized all of the furnishings in the space including the reception desk, bar stools, two custom sofas, lounge chairs, dining chairs, curtains, and a beautiful brass bar shelf for a refreshing modern interpretation.
