GRADE New York fitted out a penthouse located in West Village and for which our artisans carried out several upholstery works for an art collector.
"As we considered launching a custom collection we knew we wanted to partner with someone who not only had the experience, talent, and expertise to execute our vision but who also shares our values. We thought of Jouffre after working together on a number of custom designs for our projects, knowing that the finished products would be impeccably crafted and exude those shared qualities and values of beauty, balance, and timeless design."> Visit website
Edward Yedid and Thomas Hickey, co-founders of GRADE, are both driven by a common vision of interior design and decoration, which they believe should be orderly, clear and ingenious.
Last year, an ambitious collector called on them to design a Penthouse in the heart of the West Village. Presented between the pages of Galerie Magazine, this residence of 1100 square meters located in Manhattan is surrounded by a large terrace and allows one to benefit from a very beautiful natural light.
The owner of the place had no doubt that he wanted to call upon the talents of GRADE to bring his interior to life. The adventure began for the interior design agency who had as a challenge to decorate the apartment with only grey, black and white colors in its palette.
GRADE's teams had to be creative in order to create a contemporary space that attracts attention not through the colors it displays, but through original and textured works of art and pieces of furniture.
Thus, we can find in the different rooms of the apartment characterful creations signed by Mathieu Lehanneur, Pierre Yovanovitch, Pierre Soulages or Mattia Bonetti to name a few.
Drawing their inspiration from their travels and the interiors that surround them, Edward Yedid and Thomas Hickey have decided to carry out their art in prestigious and contemporary living spaces, while preserving their sensitivity for craftsmanship and art.
This is how our workroom came on board to provide their expertise. For several months, our team of Project Managers, furniture designers and artisans in Lyon and New York worked on the development and the conception of several pieces of furniture of the penthouse.
Among these pieces is the sofa in the living room, which required a lot of development and reflection on the part of our teams in order to give it a suspended look, and two Asymmetry armchairs by Pierre Yovanovitch, upholstered by our teams. These three seats are perfectly adapted to their environment and contribute to the chromatic harmony of the living room thanks to their light color.
The New York studio, which usually relies on the savoir-faire of our American teams, also called on our Lyon-based collaborators to develop the Shell Club armchair. This contemporary and comfortable piece of furniture owes its originality in part to the oak shell that wraps it.
