Greenwich Avenue gets even more glamorous this season with the Greenwich International Film Festival coming to town. We were excited when the GIFF organizers asked us to design and decorate their box office on the corner of Greenwich Avenue and West Elm Street as we were already intimately familiar with the space, having once had a Lillian August store in that exact location.
Here’s a look at the 19 West Elm Street location when it was a Lillian August store:
And here it is now as the GIFF Box Office:
We spoke with our Greenwich-based interior designer, William Lyon to get the inside scoop on his inspiration points for this space. William chose newer pieces from the Lillian August for Hickory White collection to show off the brand’s fresh, new looks. The curved Maison sofa might seem traditional on its own but when paired with the cool horn chairs and fun throw pillows, it is gives an eclectic interest to the space. Organic accents from the statement horn chairs extend into the faux boix texture in the wrought iron legs of the Hatten Cocktail Table.
In this part of the box office an unexpected mix of textures work together for a compelling look. The Ford Shagreen Console is a favorite piece as the shagreen texture is universally loved. William enjoyed how the airplane top on the table catches the eye and makes a statement. Fun purples liven up the space.
Lillian August is proud to support the Greenwich International Film Festival. The caliber of films that will be shown and industry talent that is associated with the Film Festival is truly astonishing.
The Greenwich International Film Festival Box Office is now open and we encourage you to visit 19 West Elm Street to get film recommendations, learn more about festival events, buy tickets and passes or reserve your seat at one of the free GIFF panels.
