Most of the furnishings are new, but Plam reused some items from the clients’ previous residence, refinishing and reupholstering where needed. To keep the focus on views, Plam chose minimal, streamlined furniture in a neutral palette. Accent pieces, such as two Glass Italia Shimmer tables by Patricia Urquio in the primary bedroom, bring unexpected hits of color and depth—almost like an additional works in the clients’ art collection.
“The decorative lighting throughout the apartment is a highlight,” notes Plam, “with several incredible custom pieces and a few iconic midcentury pieces. We were wary of creating a midcentury greatest hits playlist here, and while there are so many tempting pieces, the focus stayed on thoughtfully designed and hand-crafted pieces throughout—many made locally to detailed specs.” Much like the art and accent furniture, lighting choices—including two brass wall scones in the sitting room, a Serge Mouille chandelier in the living room, and a trio of hanging brass pendants by Areti over the clients’ game table—add interesting, but not distracting, shapes to each zone.
