Gramercy Park Twofer; House Beautiful Takes on the Capital

NYC—Curbed NY notices two listings on Gramercy Park today. One belongs to fashion guy Karl Lagerfeld; what the other lacks in celebrity it makes up for in style. The parlor floor-through two-bedroom, which is asking $12,500 a month, has beautifully preserved historic bones and spectacular modern furnishings, which are all available for purchase. [Curbed NY]

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Yesterday House Beautiful editor in chief Newell Turner joined North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan at a press conference on American-made furniture. According to a survey conducted by the magazine, 91 percent of Americans would prefer domestic pieces, but half said their last piece was manufactured internationally. Meanwhile, the brand's green chair giveaway continues apace. [Curbed DC]

THE INTERNET—Editorial content isn't the only thing that's new over at One Kings Lane these days; the furnishings and decor flash-sales site has just launched Vintage + Market Finds, which allows designers to post and sell antiques. [Editor at Large]

THE INTERNET—Over at Time.com, Gary Belsky thinks Ikea's new house-building initiative is one helluva brand extension. "Hard to say whether the 69-year-old Swedish company’s foray into prefab living will work, but that’s precisely the fun about brand extensions," he writes. "Predicting which will succeed and which won’t is tougher than handicapping horse races but way more interesting." [previously; Time]
