Legend and Teigen Sell Pad

It’s been 16 months since John Legend and Chrissy Teigen listed their uber-stylish Nolita loft for $4.5 million, and four months since they welcomed their baby daughter Luna into the world, and now the power couple is free to find a new family-friendly home as the Observer reports that their apartment has sold for $3.995 million.


The couple purchased the apartment in 2012 for $2.5 million after selling their East Village condo at 52 East 4th Street for $2.7 million. They enlisted Don Stewart of Los Angeles–based firm Desiderata Design to complete the “dark, moody atmosphere,” which is an attractive combo of cozy, industrial, and eclectic. Some of the unique design elements, in addition to the requisite piano nook, are a reclaimed wood wall, an Asian-inspired green silk bed spread, and a 19th century gilded leather screen on a bedroom wall.


The 1,969-square-foot space retains historic elements such as exposed brick, cast iron columns, and oversized windows.


The kitchen was especially important since Teigen is a well-known foodie (her cookbook “Cravings” hit the New York Times bestseller list in February). The open room has bronze and brass fixtures, a custom hand-laid backsplash, and open shelving in the island to house all her cookbooks.


The master suite is sensual to say the least, boasting a leather bed frame, rich wall textiles, and a black cast iron tub. There’s a walk-in closet, custom built-in wardrobe, and walk-in shower and radiant heat floors in the bathroom.


The apartment was featured in Architectural Digest in 2015, as was their Los Angeles home in 2013, so we think it’s safe to assume wherever the couple goes next will be just as glamorous and fashion-forward.
