In­fi­nite jest


Since 2005, the hus­band-and-wife de­sign duo Jesse Car­rier and Mara Miller, founders of the Man­hat­tan firm Car­rier and Com­pany, have been dec­o­rat­ing the interiors of New York City’s fash­ion elite. Re­cently, the pair—who met as stu­dents at the Fash­ion In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy—took on a stylish young fam­ily’s down­town apart­ment, with the daunt­ing goal of making it both cos­mopoli­tan and kid friendly. Car­rier and Miller be­gan by de­vis­ing a strate­gic lay­out for the loft-style space, re­serv­ing plenty of room for en­ter­tain­ing guests and chil­dren. “We wanted to make the home feel open and invit­ing,” says Miller, “so that the own­ers would never have to sac­ri­fice in-home host­ing in or­der to keep it fam­ily ori­ented.”

The liv­ing room’s ot­toman is up­hol­stered in a kilim rug dis­cov­ered on the home­own­ers’ trav­els!
