Gen­tle­men’s Quar­ters Change of heart


Bobby Gra­ham and Matthew Mar­den found down­town digs with clas­sic West Vil­lage char­ac­ter and style.

Be­fore mov­ing into their West Vil­lage apart­ment last sum­mer, Bobby Gra­ham (ad­ver­tis­ing di­rec­tor for in­ter­na­tional fash­ion at GQ mag­a­zine) and Matthew Mar­den (fash­ion di­rec­tor at De­tails mag­a­zine) some­times strolled past the pre­war build­ing af­ter brunch­ing with friends. They had of­ten ad­mired the struc­ture’s orig­i­nal paned-glass win­dows and or­nate stonework. So, when they dis­cov­ered that one of its cov­eted one-bed­room apart­ments was avail­able, the couple leapt to fill out an ap­pli­ca­tion. “For years, we didn’t nec­es­sar­ily care about where our apart­ment was lo­cated as long as the space it­self was cool,” says Mar­den. “But this apart­ment was per­fect in ev­ery way, and ap­pro­pri­ate for where we are in our lives.”

The liv­ing room’s Moroc­can rug, found at the John De­rian bou­tique, is Mar­den’s fa­vorite piece in the apart­ment.
