Park Ave Penthouse

This penthouse duplex apartment on Park Ave is situated in a beautiful pre- war luxury building and is renovated in a classically inspired style that exudes comfortable living. Combining two separate apartments, this one luxurious duplex emerged, connected by an elegant curved marble staircase, accentuated by its scrolling handcrafted wrote iron railing. To compliment the formal yet cozy feel of the space, luxurious furnishings, art collections and objet d’art were mixed with rich textiles. The influences are broad ranging from heavy European sources, such as elaborate Italianate chairs, to Chinese ceramics, and African masks. The spaces take on a sense of the ‘cabinet de curiosités’, where an object of interest can be seen and admired on every surface and in every corner. The juxtaposition of such varied objects side by side give the rooms such a worldly yet sophisticated appeal. The silks, velvets, and woolens used for the upholstery, wall coverings, and bedding only ad another layer to the sumptuousness of each room. Above all, the synthesis of the apartments overall appeal stems from its certain uniqueness in balancing the old and new, formal and relaxed.
