The craft of jewellery making provided a starting point for Brooklyn studio General Assembly's interior for this penthouse in Boerum Hill.
The residence on Bergen Street in the Brooklyn neighbourhood was renovated for a jewellery designer and her family. The client's delicate metalwork informed design details across the apartment, according to General Assembly.
"Taking the jewellery-making process as inspiration, we used rolled raw brass sheets in the living room and master bedroom, and designed custom pieces of furniture to store and feature the owner's original designs," said a description from the studio.
The brass forms the top for a custom wood counter that runs along one wall in the living area, underneath the windows. Painted teal, the unit incorporates cupboards, shelves, planters and a small cushioned bench.
A library area with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves is russet-coloured, enhancing the wooden floors and several brown-toned items across the open-plan space.
Standout fixtures and furnishings include the leather Togo Sofa from Ligne Roset, side tables by Anna Karlin, and pendant lamps by Michael Anastassiades hung over the Danish modern dining table and chairs.
"A rich colour palette throughout helped unite vintage pieces of furniture and lighting with contemporary pieces by local artists," General Assembly said.
In the master bedroom, a brass chest of drawers is built into the centre of white wardrobes, below a tarnished mirror. Other bespoke furniture by General Assembly in the room includes the bed, as well as glossy burgundy bedside tables.
The apartment includes an additional bedroom and two bathrooms. The master bath is decorated with diamond-shaped tiles, concrete surfaces, and a custom white oak vanity.
The New York City borough is a prime spot for home renovations, with recently completed examples including a 19th-century townhouse in Prospect Heights and the brownstone belonging to designer Rafael de Cárdenas.
