The Contemporary Couch
Client Home #94, Lido Beach, NY

We love referrals, but when it's mothers and daughters it is especially meaningful to us. Client Home #50 Baldwin, Long Island was very happy with her home and how we treated her, so her mom told us she knew she wanted us to design her home.  And what a home it is!  It's a spanish style terra cotta roof "beach house" on the beach on Long Island on a corner lot.  The interior is contemporary with multi levels and has wrapping decks and a roof top deck for breathtaking ocean views.

This exquisite dream home welcomes the spring after two years of construction. Every beautiful detail from the grand center hall to the wrap around bedroom veranda, has been created by skilled craftsmen.

We began with the living room and dining room.  The house was only framed when we measured but had unique features like an elevator, theater, putting green and some other surprises!  All of the ceilings were multi level as well.


 

Living Room

The living room was very long (and very glamorous.)  We designed a 24 foot long (7 piece) snake sectional in golds and creams.  We used metallic vinyls, patterned vinyls, metallic patterned fabrics and microfibers.  It's beyond stunning!  We also played with golds and silvers in the same room so it doesn't look heavy.  A 20 foot long custom rug will sit below it and a 17 foot long canvas embellished with metals will coordinate above it.  I have been doing more and more paintings lately, and now our clients see the window treatments, rugs and canvases as the completion to all our furniture designs.  We also used a huge metal and glass cocktail table and two dramatic chairs with a hand painted table between them.  The other side of the room has a chaise with the curviest arm I've ever seen to lay (dramatically) and look out the window at yet another view.

Sitting Area

In the bedroom, Pia's design challenge was to create a comfortable setting while still keeping the glamour of the home. Two shapely chaises were selected covered in rich microsuede and featuring a unique metallic pattern. A spectacular custom area rug and shapely coffee table complete the setting. Accenting the room, dramatic window cornices using silk threads coordinate perfectly with the chaises and the rug. A beautiful setting recalling the days when bedrooms were glamorous and amorous.

Look at the details of this extraordinary one-of-a-kind design. The client wanted a design never before produced by Pia. The severity of the curves created a design challenge for our staff, but the results are stunning.

Of course you could purchase boring, plain, counter stools in many other stores. If you value your home, and love the artistic touches Pia brings to the contemporary furniture marketplace, then look what we could do for you. Adjustable height counter stools in cherry wood and metallic vinyl. Coordinates perfectly with dinette set and window cornices.

Dining Room

The dining room is stately and elegant.  A 96" glass top over a metal and burl wood base. with a burl wood buffet up on a metal base.  The finest in Italian craftsmanship.  The chairs are wood with stainless backs and soft ultrasuede in a channeled upholstery.  Under this setting is a custom rug in the creams, browns, silvers, gold and a little cranberry.  The window treatments are made to look like moving sand.

It is a pleasure working with this family, and we wish them many years of happiness and ocean breezes in their dream home!

This beautiful, brilliant, hard-working teacher buys her first town house.  She knows what she wants after finding us on the web.  she visits the showroom and says "Okay, come to my house, I love everything here!"

We laid out the living/dining combination to flow with color and fabrics as well as socially.  The sectional is a celery leather trimmed in sage microfibre.  The chaise was a must!  Armless chairs in a lavender and green pattern with a metal base can swivel to look at the fireplace or talk to those at the dining room table.  The dining table is almond and lavender and the shape is curvy!

The chairs are angled and coordinate three different fabrics!  A wall sculpture and custom rug were designed to coordinate all the beautiful colors of the room (and of course we chose all the colors of the walls for the downstairs.)  When the springtime arrives, so will the furniture with a beautiful beginning.

Good luck with your new home (and go to law school like your mother and I told you!)

Another satisfied customer!

To Pia and Larry,
      I wanted to find the perfect words to describe the joy you have placed into our home. You have made our home feel welcoming with a place of contentment within our hearts. The joy that we feel when looking into this magical place has been a feeling that cannot be described but an emotion that exudes pure happiness. I told you we would come back to you for you to decorate our dream home and you guys have made it look dynamic and feel mythical all in one. We were already in love with our new home but you have taken it to another level. Pushing a key in the door has a whole new meaning now.
Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts!!!!
                                                                        C and R R.
                                                                        Lido Beach, Long Island
