“The challenge lay in combining the owner’s love of entertaining in all its forms with the need for a serene home that is inevitably dominated by sweeping vistas over one of the world’s most beautiful cities.”
-Designer Erin Roberts
The open living space also evokes a Japanese influence. Roberts customised a pair of loveseats by switching out their legs for a custom white oak platform base, adding matching side tables for a built-in look that was low to the ground and without traditional chairs. Mimicking the simplicity and practicality of a Japanese home, the result is a set of six separate pieces that allow for flexibility through re-arrangement and layout. Other minimalist pieces include the 524 Tabouret Berger Stool designed by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina and artist Bobby Clark’s print on the wall.
