But this time, he and his partner Eugene Remm (in conjunction with the One Group) requested something a bit different. Where Aer is sexy and provocative, here they wanted a more residential, luxurious feel, almost as if it had been there forever. With that in mind, Greater New York Chapter member and ICRAVE project designer Cece Stelljes used luxurious touches (leather, velvet, walnut wood) and custom details (buttons, piping, accentuated stitch lines) throughout the 3,400square-foot space, which is divided into three distinct areas. Guests descend a main stairway decorated with a massive crystal beaded vintage chandelier and enter a long, wide hallway lined with framed mirrors and glassed-in avante garde artwork by local artist Peter Tunney. The same artist’s work hangs in the lounge above black velvet seating, walnut wood floors, and zebra ottomans that give an exotic touch to an otherwise dark seating area. In the center stands the main black > bar, whose marble backbar twinkles with points of lights.
