IT WAS ONLY FITTING THAT CANTONI WAS TAPPED TO COLLABORATE WITH EMPIRE AT KINGS TO TRANSFORM THE 1,450 SQUARE FOOT PENTHOUSE WITH AN EXPANSIVE 1,180 SQUARE FOOT TERRACE INTO A WARM URBAN OASIS TO HELP PROSPECTIVE RESIDENTS ENVISION THEMSELVES LIVING AT THE EMPIRE AT KINGS.
In the heart of West Hollywood lives a king, that is the Empire at Kings. This hot residence located on the famous Kings Road, recently opened their doors, sculpted by renowned artist Guy Dill. The modern luxury property features a green lifestyle, professional stainless-steel pet washing station, and panoramic views of downtown LA, the Hollywood Hills, and the vast westside cityscape.
Craig Berberian, Empire at King’s co-founder and managing partner, who learned about Cantoni and our staging program in one of our eNewsletters, visited our Los Angeles showroom in search of a bed frame and fell in love with an American Leather piece. Craig adds, “Cantoni’s high-end quality products and design integrate very well with the overall architectural style of our building. I love that Cantoni is more than just a showroom; it’s a design studio that provides design consultants who are knowledgeable and offer creative insight while working with you through every phase of the design process.”
The Cantoni design team met with Craig to discuss floor plans and his vision for a sleek, modern, and colorful living space. The design process began by selecting a color palette. Inspired by Empire at King’s architectural style and use of natural stones and woods, the design team chose neutral tones including black, grey, silver, and white to create a sleek, modern aesthetic appeal.
To create unique focal points in each space, the design team placed bold, colorful statement pieces such as the Fera Rosso entertainment unit in high gloss red lacquer in the living room and the red sculptural Nemo Face chairs on the terrace.
The unit features three bedrooms and three bathrooms. However, the Cantoni design team chose to turn one of the guest bedrooms into a functional office space, showcasing the unit’s versatility. The new office space was outfitted with the hand-stitched black leather Winner desk, Camino arm chair and espresso-stained oak leaning Eilleen bookshelf. The master suite was furnished with pieces in grey hues and white lacquer while the second bedroom was outfitted in all black furnishings with metal accents to create a high drama effect.
The terrace which functions as an extension of the living space features the sculptural Nemo Face chairs as well as an outdoor dining table and seating from our eco-friendly Lido and Lucca collections.
“My experience with Cantoni was positive and professional,” says Craig. “They exceeded our expectations in terms of their level of service and vast product portfolio.” Laughing he adds, “I only wish we could have done another unit!”
