Upper East Side Pied-à-Terre

When our clients bought this pied-à-terre in a new building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, it was a light-filled but completely raw space. Having worked with them before, we knew they wanted a glamorous but functional getaway for their family with plenty of space to entertain and lounge, depending on the day.

Luxurious materials, like the black marble columns that flank the apartment’s entrance, and a mix of Art Deco, mid-century and French antique pieces, take center stage against thoughtfully restrained architectural details.

Unexpected flourishes, like the French-polished wenge panels and bookcases in the library and the red lacquered kitchen cabinetry, add a sense of drama to the apartment and echo the sophisticated, adventurous personalities of the owners.
