With gold on grey and delicate touches of blue, this apartment outshines the usual development décor. Textures cut through the opulence of the penthouse’s architecture, with mirror glass cabinetry, herringbone veneer, white marble and glints of metallics. A wool rug threaded with silk was designed to unite the colours of the scheme, while bronze trims on the bespoke furniture keep a reassuring sense of solidity. The centrepiece is a bespoke 7m high storage shelving unit that discreetly conceals the TV, while a sectional sofa was designed so it can be easily removed to turn the living room into a party space. Bespoke details can be found at every turn, from lights inspired by oyster shells to an immense artwork that seems to change colour as the light moves through the home. There’s even a rather special chess set with pieces in bronze, brass and lapis lazuli by Bergman, working as product designers in London as well. This piece has become so striking that it was made available to order through Harrods.
