From a Chelsea duplex with colorful art and midcentury furniture to a sleek space in Tribeca with glass and mirrored accents, see how top designers have made the most of spacious layouts and exquisite views in eight New York City penthouses.
Designer Scott Sanders mixed contemporary art, midcentury furniture and new pieces, including a custom designed dining table, in this sophisticated two-story penthouse in West Chelsea. A gray-toned palette creates a soft backdrop to the bold color accents, rich textures, and bright accessories used throughout the space.
The current owners of this duplex penthouse loft in New York’s Flatiron neighborhood asked designer Gary McBournie to give the home a more uptown look while still retaining its spacious feel. In the large living space, McBournie’s carved out distinct seating area with two abstract paintings by German artist Rainer Gross and a rolled arm sofa with pale gold chenille upholstery. The custom designed geometric patterned Tibetan carpet and colorful assortment of accent pillows ties the space together.
Designer Wesley Moon created an intimate corner in the large living room of this penthouse pied-à-terre. Instead of a sofa, he chose a chaise to avoid blocking the view and allow the option to face the window or into the room.
A glass table, simple white leather chairs and a horizontal crystal chandelier are the highlights of this Tribeca dining room designed by Marie Burgos. These accents make the home feel spacious and the striking artwork draws the eye in.
In this downtown penthouse, designer Magdalena Keck used the furnishings to echo the geometry of the home’s striking architecture and create an open feel. Keck placed the furniture away from the windows and walls to enhance the light and airiness of the home. See more of the home here>
To maximize this penthouse’s stunning view of Central Park, Worth Interiors kept the design subtle with elegant and refined furnishings by Troscan Designs, Holly Hunt Studio and Minotti.
Design firm A-List Interiors used a light and airy color palette to complement but not compete with this apartment’s exquisite views. Metallic and lucite accents heighten the fresh feeling and create a relaxing retreat.
For this spacious duplex penthouse in Manhattan’s storied Barbizon Hotel, design firm Eberlein Design created warm, welcoming interiors that make the home feel like an inviting haven and celebrate its incredible city views.
