Lining Up

High on the 58th floor of the Setai Fifth Avenue, there's a suite of showhouses hosted by three popular design magazines. Walking through one of them, this powder room by Jim and Phoebe Howard caught my eye. I like how they handled the condition of the sink area. The side wall is taller than it is wide, so running the oblong marble tiles vertically makes sense—coordinating the veining so it flows with that of the sink deck tightens up the space in a strikingly modern way.
