Studio Mellone devises a chic design unit at 200 Amsterdam
Inside designer Andre Mellone is sharing a first glimpse of his eyesight for the huge duplex penthouse perched on the 49th and 50th floors of 200 Amsterdam, the Elkus Manfredi–designed tower that’s the tallest constructing on New York’s Higher West Aspect.
Inspirations for the 6,400-sq.-foot residence, listing for $38 million, are different. Influenced by a new check out to I.M. Pei’s Sutton Place city house, Mellone developed a feeling of drama in the entry by wrapping structural columns with sumptuous Scalamandré silver leaf wallpaper. Other influences include Halston’s lavish Olympic Tower showroom (visible in a long industrial business table) and nearby Lincoln Centre (the crystal sconces duplicate the ones at the Metropolitan Opera).
All four bedrooms are en suite. The oversized dwelling room has been imagined as an amphitheater of sorts, with Arden Riddle swivel chairs that present views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. (There’s also a 116-foot-extensive terrace facing Central Park, some 660 feet under.)
Throughout the dwelling, an assortment of contemporary, classic, and personalized pieces—including Christian Liaigre accent tables, Knoll Spoleto Chairs, Danny Kaplan Titus lamps, and a 1950s Feal Milano bookcase—create a modern day, but timeless dynamic.
A slice of France in Miami
Two Roads Growth is sharing never-ahead of-observed illustrations or photos of French designer Jean-Louis Deniot’s vision for the interiors at Elysee Miami, the 57-story apartment in Edgewater developed by architecture agency Arquitectonica.
For his initial very first ground-up residential project in the U.S., Deniot harkened back to Miami’s midcentury golden period, incorporating black-and-white marble, customized mosaic patterns, classic furnishings, with antique gold and silver leafing accents. “I viewed the 1964 film Soy Cuba, read through architecture textbooks by Morris Lapidus, and went through hundreds of photos of Dorothy Draper,” Deniot stated in a statement. “I needed a stylish, exciting, and ethereal style, an aesthetic assertion that displays the interesting, artsy place Miami is.” The Advert100 inside designer included that he chose a colour palette that would “reflect the exteriors and the sights of the sky and water from the inside.” Residences function personalized kitchens with Italkraft cabinetry, Wolf ranges, and Sub-Zero appliances. Loos include Waterworks fittings.
