Design Challenge: To create an urban home on an upper floor of a Lake Shore Drive high-rise—an expressive space that provides all the comforts necessary for family living and can serve as a showcase when entertaining professional colleagues and clients.
Design Solution: Color and classic design extend a warm welcome to family and guests. Efficient space planning maximizes the utility of the open floor plan. Patina finishes on Venetian plaster walls evoke timeless graciousness. Asian antiquities underscore the distinctiveness of this one-of-a-kind setting. Hard-wearing luxury fabrics and Tibetan rugs rise to the demands of family living.
