We had so much fun dreaming up this design for the annual Holiday House showhouse on the Upper East Side. As soon as I saw this lounge, we pictured a gorgeous, sparkling jewel box, highlighted by the bright rays of the sun. Summer is our favorite season, so we created a space inspired by the solstice.
Even though this room had a small footprint, we had plenty of room to play. We wanted to show the world that you can create customized, site-specific art that perfectly suits your space, so we commissioned two custom pieces for this lounge. The rainbow artwork evoked the wavelengths of the sun, the sparkling accents above the sconces glimmered in the light, and the handmade porcelain flowers added a touch of whimsy to the space. By focusing our art installations on the walls and ceiling, we were able to create the feeling of an expanded room.
