The elephant in the room

Posted on Thu, 21 Apr 2016 by midcenturyjo

Or should that be the skeleton on the ceiling? It may be the deal breaker if you want to come on my virtual getaway to this loft style apartment in Tribeca, New York which ticks all the boxes. Exposed brick walls, light streaming in the the tall windows, a mini jungle, curios on industrial style shelves, great kitchen… and the skeleton above the dining table. I’ve been staring at it for ages trying to work out what the model is actually of. Ichthyosaur? Prehistoric razor toothed dolphin? A cousin of the Loch Ness Monster? It would certainly make for an interesting dinner party conversation. Franklin Place is available through onefinestay

Phocoena Phocoena skeleton

Maybe they just had nowhere else to put it Jo?

Jenny says:

I love the contrast between the bathroom and living area. One is ready to entertain and has a great focak point (crocodile?) and the other is ready to welcome relaxation. Perfect.

Claire says:

Hanging the skeleton is a neat idea, but the first thing I thought of is that I wouldn't want to be the one to dust it. I love that there's a full sized sofa in the child's room. Sometimes a chair just isn't enough.
