This contemporary design was to create a Lounge for a couple who loves to entertain. The Living lounge blurs the lines between kitchen and living area. The custom kitchen has a warm lounge like atmosphere that disguises its utilitarian purpose. The clean lines of the custom cabinetry carries over into the living space with its cereused oak finish, calacatta neolith stone and modern light fixtures to the hearths lounging side- or maybe its vice versa. The design makes it hard to tell where one space ends and the next begins. So sip a cocktail, make some appetizers with your guests and watch the kids play as this space opens up to custom playroom shelving. The biggest challenge for this project was dealing with existing mechanical units and the limited height of the space. Playing with the idea of a floating beamed ceiling tricked the eye and made the space appear larger.
DXV Design Panel 2017: “Journey the World” takes inspiration from four cities with uniquely distinguishing building characteristics and design styles and interprets them through exquisite bathroom settings that highlight timeless DXV fixtures and faucets.
Suggesting life on a houseboat, Alfano’s DXV bathroom brings the city of Copenhagen indoors with the use of natural materials, like hewn beams, water-inspired colors, and a living moss wall.
To achieve a sense of Nordic coziness, Alfano balanced light-colored materials with the occasional geometric pattern and pop of color. The design flexibility and cool curves of the complete DXV Modulus collection, scheduled to launch this November, were a natural fit for this aesthetic, from the striking soaking tub to the unique, wall-mounted drawer unit, countertop slab and vanity tray. “The DXV Modulus collection’s user experience is impressive,” Alfano noted. “The vanity tray fits perfectly on top of the lavatory, on top of the floating drawer, or even inside it. There’s thoughtfulness to the design.”
The DXV bathroom design consummates well being and was their 2017-2018 AD campaign featured in the following magazine’s: New York Times T Style, Vanity Fair, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Architectural Record, INTERIOR DESIGN, Metropolis and Metropolitan Home.
