Ken Fulk's newest restaurant project, Legacy Records, is a showcase for his talent of mixing color, texture and unique materials.  Ken is a true master in creating spaces that are fun, vibrant and encourage people to congregate and linger.  Legacy Records is located in Henry Hall, a new building in the up and coming NYC neighborhood of Hudson Yards.  The building includes the restaurant along with several lounges and bar areas...many of which feature Urban Electric fixtures - let's take a tour, shall we?!

 

His use of our Hull Pendants and The Flat Semi-flushmounts in a custom paint color (Benjamin Moore's 'Cat Eye Green') and hewn brass unify the space and are the perfect complement to the dark wood paneling and marble tiled floor.  Even the coffered ceiling trim, with inlayed natural caning, is painted in the same shade.  The bold choice of this classic green was made to invoke an old school pretty country club vibe...but in a modernized way.

 

Moving upstairs we encounter one of the public lounges, a perfect spot to grab a coffee and sit with your laptop or a quick low-key cocktail at the end of the day.  Here, Ken selected our Lundy Pendants painted in Benjamin Moore 'Fiery Opal' and accented in Hewn Brass.  The warm coppery-colored hue works so well with all of the earthy elements of the room and are the perfect contrast to the exaggerated black and white checkerboard floor.

 

Next, we move into the semi-private lounge which has an amazing old Hollywood, sleek yet sultry feel.  Here, the intricate pressed metal ceiling is punctuated by the super clean lines of our Jackson flush-mounts.  Again, Ken's mix of textures, material and finishes are in perfect harmony and create a super inviting atmosphere.  The perfect room for deep conversation with good friends and great cocktails...

 

On the top floor of Henry Hall, you'll find a private space available for parties and dinners.  We threw a dinner party recently to celebrate the launch of our collection of Illustrated Shades by Robert Escalera, and the space did not disappoint.  The rooms are sophisticated, cozy and perfectly curated.  And we love how Ken used our Rex Flushmounts in place of can lighting to provide that extra element of design.

 

Make sure to check it out the next time you are in the city!
