Picasso’s and leopard print and gold – OH MY! An apartment as lush as this could only exist in New York City and could only be the result of a lifetime of collecting and imagination. The apartment’s owner, Giancarlo Giammetti (one half of the Valentino empire) worked with designer Jacques Grange to create this ultimate New York pad and with walls of Indian mica, leopard print carpet en masse, plush sofas and old and modern antiques scattered throughout, the apartment has become a sanctuary in the sky for the owner.
Despite the opulence of the finishes and contents, the apartment retains a confortable and approachable air. Rich browns, golds and blues dominate the colour palate which creates a distinctly masculine atmosphere to the space. And with a generous dash of some of the worlds greatest artist, this apartment surely takes the luxe cake.
