Today we’ll show you a penthouse in Manhattan that is filled with modern floor lamps. New York designer Kelly Behun was the interior design behind this project near the top of Rafael Viñoly’s 432 Park Avenue tower. She used a palette aimed to complement the sweeping Manhattan views and make visitors “feel grounded” 92 storeys up.
“I had never really in my career been interested in a model apartment, because I find them very generic and feeling overly staged,” Kelly Behun told. “But I was intrigued when they told me the address.”
As the apartment is so high up, Behun and her team wanted to help prospective residents feel at ease by using a dark floor in the living space. “There were a couple color choices for the floor,” she said, “so we naturally chose the deepest one, because I felt like you needed to literally, underfoot, feel grounded.”
The tones used for surfaces, upholstery and other textiles throughout the residence were picked from the buildings and infrastructure that can be seen through the huge square windows. Industrial floor lamps can be seen in the living room, giving it a unique touch.
The designer filled the apartment with furniture and accessories by New York designers. In the corner living space, a plaster artwork by artist Yolande Batteau covers the full fireplace wall, and is inlaid with gold lines in an Art Deco pattern.
A sculptural freestanding bathtub is positioned in front of a window, so visitors can imagine themselves enjoying the view while taking a soak.
Two guest bedrooms are decorated in contrasting colours: one with light walls and the other lined in a deep blue.
The master suite, which occupies the other corner, is also decorated in pale colours. A custom 20-foot (six-metre) upholstered headboard features a geometric design influenced by the work of minimalist artist Frank Stella.
