Tra Author and Artist Doug Meyer featured in The Cut

“I decided on the design scheme over months and months of craziness going on in my head,” says artist Doug Meyer. “When I design, I have to be able to envision it, draw it, and build it.”

What Meyer has created in his 1-bedroom apartment in Chelsea can best be described as a fantastical mini-kingdom, part science-fiction and part Jetsons, filled with his own handmade fixtures, furniture, and rugs — each inspired by Meyer’s love for geometry, botany, and micro-organisms.

In this episode of Interior Lives, our design editor Wendy Goodman takes us inside Meyer’s apartment, a post-war co-op in the Chelsea Mutual Redevelopment Houses, where Meyer’s interstellar imagination is on full-display, showing us just how important it is to never let your space, no matter where or what the size, limit possibility.
