Palais FG – Austria, by Denis Košutić
Vienna-based architect and designer Denis Košutić views interior architecture as a subject of consumption, not a monument to eternity, and with that in mind, he redesigned the interior of a Baroque Austrian Palace providing this history-rich landmark with a modern twist and turning it into a cheerful, exuberant place. The sensation overload this interior conveys can be overwhelming, like a fine impressionist painting, but as soon as you start joining all the details together it transposes into a wonderful visual experience.
The renewed interior architecture of this palace features a golden wallpaper, pink colorful curtains and exciting bright sofas with some of our most iconic pieces: the sublime Newton Dining Table, the heavenly Eden Center Table and a couple of Pixel Bar Cabinets, which we usually imagine being place alone, but in this case Denis proved us wrong and exceeded himself in combining a lot of egos into a single, majestic room. An exceptional interior design project that takes a sublime taste and a lot of imagination.
This interior architecture project by Ekaterina Lashmanovoy displays a lot of elegance and, above all, taste. It features smart mirror placement for depth, a strong presence of marbled textures, geometric patterns and, above all, every piece is given its own breathing space. “Being an architect by education, I pay a lot of attention to space planning. In an ill-conceived layout it’s uncomfortable to live and, in this case, the decor will not save it”, Ekaterina says.
The apartment, however, consisted of a quarter circle and the round walls had to be leveled by cabinets, radius cornices, and curtains. For the living room, a beautiful creamy sofa is joined by navy blue mid-century armchairs and a pair of Wave Center Tables provide the final golden touch. “I’m impressed by the Portuguese designers“, Ekaterina admits, “Everything they do is very fashionable and relevant. What this interior needs!”
Pepe Leal is Spanish designer in love with Portugal, that he considers “A sophisticated, elegant country”, and he accepted the challenge to be responsible for the Portuguese Space at Casa Décor Madrid in 2016, that for a month and a half served as a window to Portugal in the Spanish capital. Gathering pieces from more than 20 different Portuguese brands, its interior architecture broke with the preconception that Portugal is rustic, decadent and ancient to highlight the merits of a country where past and present go hand in hand. Seen above in this living room is a pair of Eden Center Tables that provide with glitz the colorful interior.
On the other side of the room, the Heritage Sideboard serves as a testimony to Portuguese tiling, created by Boca do Lobo in order to honor this timeless craft, also known as “Azulejos”. The piece presents a different number of layers, and each one tells a different story. Quite fitting considering the nature of the project.
The interior architecture of this Italian countryside residence, by Ukrainian firm Diff-Studio, is an exquisite combination of classic and contemporary style. The interior is dominated by light accents that create a feeling of airiness and a sense of space. The more you look the more you find it charming, as there’s a little bit of everything here, from mid-century floor lamps, gorgeous Italian-style sofas, whimsical chandeliers and a lot of beautiful and bold elements that combine with each other in perfect harmony. For the hallway, a custom gold-leafed Diamond Emerald sideboard was chosen to enhance the luxurious feel of the whole interior architecture of the Countryside Residence.
The master bathroom is elegant and sumptuous and features a pair of Diamond Free Stands that combine with the Diamond Bathtub and a horizontally placed Venice Mirror that magnifies the reflecting nature of the marble. A beautiful mosaic was chosen as a mean to convey a watery, bubbly feel to the division and the overall result is a dreamy, palatial bathroom design that feels out of this world.
Located within Domaine du Lac, on the banks of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, this contemporary villa serves as a family residence whose interior architecture was conceived by interior designer and luxury lifestyle purveyor Eric Kuster. The home is custom finished to the highest of standards, with over 10,000 square feet spread over three levels. Featuring the finest materials and hand-picked pieces, large windows merge the indoors with the outdoors, bathing the interiors with natural sunlight and providing unending views of the lake.
The design emphasizes both comfort and high energy. Every element takes the preferences of the owner into consideration and the finest details are personalized to create an exact fit for the family. For the living room, coppery sofas were joined by a golden Eden Center Table that seems to have fallen from heaven to fit just where it has always belonged.
