PIET BOON studio project

Fifth Avenue apartment in NY with furniture and lighting by Christian Laigre
November 16, 2016

The clients owning this Fifth Avenue apartment stumbled upon the eponymous book of Piet Boon quite by chance. His style perfectly suited the mood they had in mind for their luxury home in the heart of New York City, overlooking the city’s biggest garden: Central Park. After meeting with the clients, Piet Boon presented the first plans for this challenging renovation: owing to strict regulations of the exclusive building, everything had to be completed within four months. An important consideration was the balance between the various rooms and making optimal use of the natural light, especially in the living spaces which overlooked the park.

As the clients already possessed exceptionally good taste, we consulted with them about their wishes and design tastes. The result is a rich, international style, with elements of European design and . And thanks to our subtle use of color, the apartment is an oasis of refined tranquility, exuding an almost meditative, Zen-like atmosphere. The perfect retreat from the City’s hustle and bustle… In the project the clients and the Studio Piet Boon has made a bet on furniture and lighting by Christian Liaigre.
