Chief clubhouse for female executives opens in Manhattan
"Stereotypically male design accents" have been reinterpreted inside this homey, private club for women in senior positions, which has opened in New York City's TriBeCa neighbourhood.
The Lower Manhattan clubhouse provides a hub for Chief – an exclusive organisation launched earlier this year as a community for female executives to connect and learn from one another.
Chief members are leaders in technology, retail, finance, media and publishing, among other fields, with many hailing from major companies like HBO, Spotify, WeWork, PepsiCo, AmEx, Away and Hearst.
"Chief is not women-only, it is women-forward," said co-founders Lindsay Kaplan and Carolyn Childers. Kaplan was formerly vice president of communications and brand at mattress start-up
The majority of the furnishings are antiques and mid-century vintage finds. Leather dining chairs that postmodern Italian architects and designers Afra and Tobia Scarpa designed in the 1970s surround a pale, round dining table.
Other key pieces are a black grand piano, fiddle leaf fig trees, vases and area rugs layered on top of each other. "We softened the room through the liberal use of upholstery and rugs," said Butchko.
