Big views, bright hues and a rich assortment of art
Stylish interiors for a riverside penthouse in The Dumont
Our client loves art, colour, pattern and texture. So we had to make sure that every room was treated to a fertile mix of tactile materials, handcrafted furniture and carefully curated mixed media.
Everything from the jewel-toned sofas to the bronze-clad fireplace was designed in-house and handcrafted by local artisans.
Bold as brass
Here, we opted for a subdued palette so that the rippling brass pendant light, aqua-blue hand bowl and artwork would have real standout.
The large oval dining table with its brushed bronze base and black-stained oak top was designed by us. As were the dark grey linen dining chairs.
This striking arrangement of gold leaf console table, hand thrown bowl and brush-stroke effect wallpaper has a painterly quality to it. It’s like a dreamy vignette that captivates you as soon as you walk through the front door.
British oil painter, Tate Gall, inspired the rhomboidal shapes for the upholstered wall. His vibrant geometric shards – reminiscent of shattered stained-glass windows – provided us with a bold and enlivening palette for the whole apartment.
Come full circle
Simple silhouettes can be so striking. This bespoke headboard is evocative of a large pale moon or hazy sun sinking into a pillowy horizon. The cool tones of the eau de nil linen mingle with the warm, coppery hues of the Missoni throw for a calm and meditative space.
Colours, textures and patterns thrive in this room. The faceted wallpaper, whose irregular polygonal shapes give the illusion of relief. The deep-fluted upholstered wall. The bright collages above the bed, by British artist Caroline Morgan. These elements coalesce to form a visually enticing whole.
This roof terrace is a gem, so we knew it had to be every bit as elegant as the interior. It’s why we chose barstools with tapered legs, chairs with soft woven seats, dining tables with fossil-black tops and large circular daybeds, which we piled high with custom-made cushions.
We also consulted plant specialists, who advised us on sustainable native trees, herbs, hedges, perennials and ornamental shrubs. These things add yet more shape, colour and texture to our designs, as well as a little inner-city biodiversity.
