Chic Scandi Style


Downtown Manhattan’s hottest new Scandinavian-inspired building, the Morris Adjmi-designed FÖRENA, is showing the first look inside with two warm and inviting model residences, Abode2 checks it out

Design expert, Neila Deen and her firm, Urban Casa was tapped to bring this space to life. Known for her decorating tips and design advice, Neila designed these homes with a Downtown buyer in mind. The homes offer a modern aesthetic with deep textures like wallpaper with rich colours, different wood finishes, neutral-coloured bedding as well as a host of custom artwork.

One design detail that really sticks out is the green wallpaper (the first image below) by Graham and Brown from the Palais collection. The wallpaper has this deep rich colour as well as a hint of gold in the design. Urban Casa used this to subtly mix in some gold detailing within the other furniture pieces in the bedroom. She also layered it with neutrals so that the wallpaper can really stand out.

Urban Casa’s work in these models complement Morris Adjmi’s Scandinavian sensibility within the building that is soothing yet elegant and refined. You walk into these homes and you just experience a peaceful retreat & relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

The homes also feature fluid layouts with graceful proportions that adapt to any lifestyle - making this home attractive to any sort of buyer - with ceiling heights ranging up to 13 feet, and oversized windows allowing for ample sunlight.

The building has recently started welcoming its first residents. Sales are handled by Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund and The Tuinstra Davis Team at Douglas Elliman.
