When Pepe Calderin Design sought inspiration for the best in furniture, upholstery, lighting, and accessories for its client’s 3,800 square feet residence on the Upper East Side, New York, Covet House was the obvious choice. Covet House has luxury interior design brands like Boca do Lobo, DelightFULL, Brabbu, Koket, Maison Valentina, Circu, Luxxu, Essential Home, Rug’Society, Pullcast and Foogo under its name.
Since Pepe Calderin Designs’ client was an art aficionado, it was paramount that the furnishings reflected the client’s taste. It was decided that everything in the spacious dwelling should be a conversation piece. All of the furniture, lighting fixtures, stone finishes, accessories, and art should grab one’s attention. To further achieve that goal, a hip, funky style was created with the use of rich colours of maroon and deep blue. The entire vibe was very Rock ‘n’ Roll done in a manner not to compete, but to complement the artwork.
It was paramount to involve the client with the design process in its entirety. In that way, the studio could get to know his tastes and add details throughout the house that would have special meaning to him.
The client is also a boat owner with a love of the sea, so it stood to reason that influence would be incorporated into the home’s design by using a similar style of wood as the boat throughout the residence.
The Coltrane Wall Lamp from Delightfull, a mid-century influenced brand is featured in the main Living Room area. Inspired by the famous jazz musician, John Coltrane, it is the perfect piece to create beautiful lighting indoors or outdoors.
