While reading the May 2019 issue of Elle Decor, I came across an article about the New York City Loft owned by  Darren Star.  He is an American producer, director, and writer of film and television, best known for creating the television series Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, and Sex and the City. 

This loft is such a wonderful example of Contemporary Style.
