Move over Manhattan, this is Chicago style!

To create this luxury city-living high rise home, we had to understand the client's vision, and understand how they wished to enjoy their life and friends.

The fireplace is a focal point, built with a custom wall unit that frames a plasma TV. Rare East India Mahogany was used for its soft ribbon effect -- a spectacular combination with the poly lacquer Euro Finish. And the mirrored background of the custom cabinet allows the glass collection to be viewed from all sides, while reflecting the beautiful 43rd floor views.

The deep rich woods, with stainless steel appointments, along with the dark wheat coloring on the walls set the stage for comfort. All furniture and furnishings were designed by Carol Guess and made especially for this client.
