David Charles Klein Design is about disrupting the traditional world of interior design by making great design available to all. It's also about my passion for design, unique ability to connect with my clients, and a desire to support them in creating their own beautiful, sacred spaces.
Turning Design Inside Out
I believe that each person is his or her own design aesthetic and that interior design is an outward reflection of who you are on the inside. When you go out into the world every day, people challenge and question who you are, so you get to come home to a space that reminds you of your identity and reinforces who you are.
Total gut remodel and design of a 1/1 on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The apartment had all original tile and kitchen cabinetry and had not been updated since it was built in 1973. My client wanted a monochromatic grey color scheme to match his sophisticated and minimal sensibility, paired with high gloss white kitchen cabinets and glass tile and shower doors in the bathroom. This added a clean and modern touch and made a smallish apartment feel much more expansive.
Using my client's existing furniture, art and accessories, I transformed a cluttered, confined and poorly designed space into one that was open, minimal and more functional.
The man who lives in this space is masculine, confident, elegant, sporty and a true gentleman: the likes of which the world sees more in classic films nowadays. Which is why the design description was called Retro modern gentlemen's club: an homage to the past with a fresh, modern sensibility.
