This is the original “Model” for that space. It is on the 27th floor. When I was asked to model the 29th floor space we looked at the problems with this one and made them go away on 29.

Redesigning this space on a higher floor, we immediately knew what NOT to do: No chandelier or oversized floral arrangement in the dining area that blocks the views and windows. A white fireplace instead of a clunky, dark brown media console. a larger, more expensive wool rug to anchor the seating area. And layers of elegance using furniture, art and accessories.
