Known for its sparkling skyscrapers and sophisticated grandeur, Downtown Dallas is a haven for luxurious high-rise living and Lawrence Youst’s penthouse is no exception. A long-time Cantoni client and intellectual property attorney, Lawrence is no stranger to stunning, sleek interiors and skyline views – so after he enlisted Cantoni to revamp his closets and was pleased with the results, he knew he needed the same design expertise for his kitchen and bathrooms.

Lawrence teamed up with Cantoni kitchen design specialist Eugenio Reyes to tackle the first project – reorganizing and simplifying his closets. For a seamless and continuous look, Lawrence and Eugenio decided on a modular closet system from Pianca’s Anteprima collection in a neutral finish, complete with mirrored glass in both the master and guest closets, allowing for flexibility to move drawer components and shelving around as needed.

After Lawrence’s dream closets came to fruition, he brought Eugenio back to work his magic on his kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. Starting in the kitchen, Eugenio selected stunning cabinetry from Aster Cucine’s Contempora collection made of high-gloss glass in a jet-black finish to fulfill Lawrence’s desire for a sleek, reflective look. To further enhance the streamlined appearance of the kitchen, the pair opted for no hardware on the cabinetry and went with a larger island than originally planned for maximum seating, from which to view the expansive Dallas skyline.

In the master and guest bathroom, Eugenio maximized storage and tied in the monochromatic appeal from the kitchen by opting for grey matte lacquered counters and cabinetry from IdeaGroup’s Cubik collection. For the powder bathroom, Lawrence envisioned a statement piece that played with the concept of geometry and Eugenio didn’t disappoint with a floating sink with modular storage in a charcoal matte laminate. “The original cabinetry was cherry, which really clashed with all the marble surfaces,” Eugenio said. “This grey cabinetry we selected was much more modern and in line with the overall aesthetic.”

In the end, both Eugenio and Lawrence were thrilled with the results. “Lawrence is just a cool guy to know. I enjoyed every site visit,” said Eugenio. “Because of his background in engineering and his technical expertise, he also understands how things are built and assembled, which made working with him a real pleasure.”

“Eugenio was great to work with,” said Lawrence. “He understood the look that I was going for and went above and beyond to exceed my expectations. I now have a beautiful kitchen, closets and bathrooms that match the rest of my home.”
