After spending several years in the French capital to immerse himself in European culture and design, Steven Volpe founded his design studio, which has a solid reputation. Rich with this experience and a member of the prestigious AD100, the designer joined forces with architect Lee Skolnick to meet the client’s needs in Greenwich Village. Throughout this exceptional collaboration, the challenge was for them to transform the traditional interior of the house, by creating modern and luminous rooms which brought the owners the calm and relaxing environment they had been dreaming of. We are proud to have participated in this transformative project by creating several custom furniture pieces for the five-story property, located in the heart of the "Big Apple".
The living room is one of the centerpieces of the house. Large bay windows offer a breathtaking view of the green exterior of the house and the neighboring gardens and allow light to enter the room, which in some places has double height ceilings.
In this room sit two parlor sofas and a daybed made by our upholsterers, bringing structure to the sumptuous and refined living space. The parlor sofas were created based on an original design by Steven Volpe, developed hand in hand with our teams. The exterior backrest of the sofa is made of eucalyptus and acts as a second enveloping skin, echoing the charm of the living room with its oak parquet flooring. The armrests give way to cushions imagined by the interior designer, fixed at both ends of the sofa's seats. Brass shelves have also been integrated into the eucalyptus structure allowing the furniture pieces to be extended, making the sofas all the more modern, in keeping with the image of the property.
The daybed, with a wooden structure covered with leather from Ashbury Hides, is upholstered with grey linen from the textile house Claremont.
In the master bedroom, our artisans once again demonstrated their expertise by developing, producing and upholstering the oak frame and headboard with a superb Pichola Silver fabric from Holland & Sherry, made from wool and linen. The elegant and refined textures, as well as the neutral tones of the different rooms, have greatly contributed to transforming this traditional structure into a modern and luminous place.
In the penthouse bedroom, we made and installed a daybed composed of a double mattress and covered in a fabric reminiscent of the neutral tones in the living room and master bedroom.
