Central Park West Penthouse

By

When an international couple purchased a penthouse overlooking Central Park West, they tried to decorate the space themselves, but soon found the home design process to be demanding and arduous. So they reached out to Decor Aid, and asked for our help in designing the entire home—from sourcing the furniture, to laying out the space, to incorporating the couple’s international art collection.

Modern home with Living Room, Sofa, Chair, End Tables, Medium Hardwood Floor, and Standard Layout Fireplace. Our client wanted to center their living room around an original piece from the Cuban artist Jose Rodriguez Fuster, one of the Caribbean’s most acclaimed living artists. So we sourced a menagerie of orange table objects and pillows to compliment the predominant colors in Fuster’s painting. To frame the formal area, we sourced two chairs from South Hill Home.

Modern home with Living Room, Standard Layout Fireplace, Floor Lighting, Medium Hardwood Floor, and Sectional. When our client tried to design the space themselves, they found it difficult to demarcate a separate living room and formal area within the penthouse’s open layout. So we sourced a large sectional couch, to separate the television area from the formal space, and then fabricated a chaise sofa, which doubles as a foyer bench.
