The Opulent Empire Penthouse: Discover Our Modern Home in New York

The Opulent Empire Penthouse is our new project with HOME’SOCIETY Studio. After already creating homes in Paris, Madrid and London, it is high time to explore the big apple, the city of dreams, the unique New York. Located in Midtown, Billionaires Row, the Opulent ‘Empire’ Penthouse has the best views over the iconic Central Park and the entire city.

Uncover a Modern Luxurious World

Standing tall over the city, the ‘Empire’ Penthouse is located in a slim, elegant, and architectural wonder of a building. For a uniquely designed Penthouse, we needed a uniquely designed building, so choosing this one in Midtown, New York, seemed like the right choice, making us feel on the top of the world. The Opulent ‘Empire’ Penthouse has two rooms, a bedroom and an office, one full-service bathroom, and one service bathroom. Owned by a high-class businesswoman, this penthouse is filled with light, high-end modern design, and uniquely amazing views.

Exploring the Penthouse

As soon as we enter the penthouse, through one of two private elevators, we are greeted by a world of marble, soft tones and textures, and natural light coming from the open-space, common area. This common area consists of a kitchen, the living room, and dining room, joined at floor level but demarcated by the height of the ceiling, the kitchen and dining room share the same height while the living room has a double height, giving dynamism to the space. All around this open space we have the iconic Central Park.

Facing south, with views over Mid and Downtown, we have the penthouse’s private area. The main bedroom is designed with soft tones and textures, and the main bathroom is in gold tones over marble, inspired by the sunset. The other bedroom, transformed into a home office, is a calm and balanced area where the owner can concentrate and work. The dark and golden tones over a neutral base convey the idea that we are in fact in an office, without forsaking the comforts of home.

Fifth Avenue Entryway

Fifth Avenue is the most famous shopping street often being referred to as Millionaire’s Row. So, as the owner personality, the entryway to her own house should feel as expensive and luxurious as this famous avenue. So, everyone who entre this entryway is contemplated with a kind of luxury that has a fundamental role in setting the design tone for the whole house. The mixture of gold, black and white is famous for bringing a touch of class and modernity into a home and this is clearly the perfect example of how to design with these luxurious colours.

Mirrors have an essential role in home design due to their purpose but also to their design, and the KAAMOS Mirror fits the ideal mirror on the wall with a flat mirror and three different materials surrounding it. The BLACK INK Rug brings a modern classic element through its design and colours, and the INFINITY Console and GALLIANO Wall Lamp complete this modern luxurious entryway design.

The Dendur Living Room

One of the best exhibitions at the Metropolitan Art Museum was inspired by the remnants of an over 2,000-year-old Egyptian Temple, The Roman Emperor Ceasar Augustus commissioned the Temple of Dendur in honour of Isis and Osiris, as well as two Nubian sons, Pediese and Pihor. This luxurious, open-plan living area is inspired by all of the temple’s awe-inspiring features.

Just like the temple, this living room also protects social interactions, something that is sacred. Although Living rooms design can be focused on practicality and functionality, comfort and elegance can’t be forsaken. This bright living room has all the comfort and functionality of the SHINTO Centre Tables in either the rectangular or square shape, the latter being used as a side table, showcasing these products’ versatility.  

The Townhouse Dining Room

The dining room can be the heart of a home. It is a place where you share meals with your family and friends and where you disconnect after a long day at work. Therefore, the design is utterly important to make you feel like you are at home and have a space perfect for some quality time. Embracing patterns and textures can be what completes the look to give a unique essence to the environment. This dining room maintains the warm pastel and white tones of the rest of the house, which has a significant impact on our mood. Because of the peaceful feelings it transmits, it is beneficial when we want to spend time with family and friends.

This ambience demonstrates how a zen-like environment may be quite relaxing and minimal. But in order to get the right minimalism style, every dining room design should consider furniture that is captivating and mesmerizing in its most basic form. Our high-class businesswoman hosts a few business dinners as well as dinners with friends, so this dining room has all the requirements: it has formal and functional elements mixed with comfort and modernity. The SHINTO Rectangular Dining Table alongside the RUKAY Dining Chair provides the comfortable, elegant, and sophisticated elements for long and important dinners.

Hell’s Kitchen

Hell’s Kitchen, also known as Clinton, is a New York City neighbourhood on the West Side of Manhattan. This area is known for its broad array of multicultural, modestly priced eateries, delicatessens, bodegas, bars, and nightlife.

There are two essential things when designing a kitchen: functionality and practicability without leaving aside comfort and sophistication. This beautiful kitchen’s design maintains the same colour palette and textures with has an island in white marble illuminated by the elegant brass with Quartz diffusers NAICCA Pendant Lights, and the new  BOURBON Swivel Counter Stool with a swivel base giving a dynamic element to this design. 

The Strand Office

The Strand was founded in 1927 on Fourth Street, on what was then known as ‘Book Row.’ On Book Row, which covered six city blocks, there were 48 bookstores. This home office, which has been inspired by this historic bookstore, is a calm and balanced place where the owner can concentrate and work.

Working from home has been one of the most popular trends in the previous ten years, so it is no surprise that designers care much about the design of such zones as possible, especially if the atmosphere is conducive to effective work and creativity, free of distractions. It is the case of this home office – it has a calm and harmonious colour palette that creates the ideal backdrop for concentration and focus while working. With a floor-to-ceiling window, this highly illuminated space has the comfort of the  SIKA Armchair to be used by the owner, and the  BATAK Armchairs to be used by the guests of her business meetings. 

High-line Bedroom 

The High Line is among the city’s most popular attractions, with a unique combination of art, nature, and architecture that justifies its popularity. The owner’s personality is expressed in this bedroom’s soft tones and textures with opposing features.

The owner’s personality is represented in this neutral palette backdrop and floor-to-ceiling windows, and this design exudes tranquillity and harmony. Being a classy businesswoman, the bedroom has classical colours showcased on the black headboard, nightstand, and side table, and modern colours provided by the fully upholstered  COMO Armchairs and  WALES Bench. The  AMIK Table Lights with the shader in light brown and structure in black harmonise both styles.

Plaza Bathroom

Inspired by Plaza Hotel, which is known for its opulent design and old-world charm, including its modern amenities. Everything about this town shines brightly with gold—literally. This mentality was continued over to the main bathroom. After a long day, the bathroom is our place of self-indulgence, private refuge, and relaxation. Bathrooms often are neglected in interior design; we tend to think of them as merely a functional space where we get ready and leave.

Long candlelit baths with bubbles, on the other hand, can play a crucial role in our peace of mind and relaxation moments. The colour palette must always be taken into consideration when designing our bathrooms. We need to make sure that the colours we chose suit both the division and the body of the house. After long days at work with the endless meeting, the house owner enjoys taking some time just for herself, claiming her time in her own private retreat. For that, the Symphony Bathtub with its oval shape is the ideal choice – its elongated form allows for a long bath in the utmost comfort. The Koi Rug adds another touch of elegance to this beautiful bathroom. Fully illuminated by the  Empire Snooker and Empire Wall, this bathroom shines just like gold in its luxurious gold and white decor.

City’s Island Powder Room

Inside one’s home, the City Island Powder Room is an exquisite oasis to refresh one’s soul. Designed just for the essentials, this powder room has the Metropolitan Washbasin in black with the Lapiaz Vessel Sink in gold and the Kilimanjaro Mirror is wide enough so the owner does not smudge herself, with the Ike Pendant providing just enough light to make sure everything is sleek and on point.
