Master of None follows the personal and professional life of Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York. If you’re a fan of the show you can’t help but love the main character Dev Shah’s Lower East Side apartment—an eclectic fifth-floor walk up peppered with worldly knickknacks and midcentury pieces.
Amy Williams, the production designer for Netflix’s hit show, reveals some of the design inspirations to Apartment Therapy. “To really drive home the point that this is a rental unit, we made the hallway outside his apartment pretty worn and disgusting. The walls inside his place are a standard rental white and the cabinets are the cheap ’90s style that most landlords place into rental units,” Williams states.
The design team scoured Craigslist, Etsy and eBay to find many of those mid-century, space-age, ’70s glam and primitive objects.
They also shopped local at stores such as Winter Check and Repop in Brooklyn and Furnish Green in Manhattan. Much of the lighting comes from a vintage lighting store that was located just a block from our stage, called Ludite. The plants all came from the plant district on W 28th Street in Manhattan.
As with any real NYC apartment there’s also the staple of items from Bed Bath and Beyond as well as West Elm and CB2.
