Call it fate, serendipity or just sheer good luck – that time and pride of ownership has created one of the most unique and beautiful homes on the Isle of Manhattan.

The home and studio of our 2014 Designer to Watch, Alexandra Mor is a bright, open space that supported her creations and family, is now ready to inspire another resident. The chic and modern space welcomes you into a harmonious oasis of coziness and wide open space, that cradles, nurtures and allows creative energies to flourish as evidenced by the high caliber of Ms. Mor’s fine jewelry.
