When approached by a former client to say he bought another penthouse at The Setai in South Beach and wanted it renovated and furnished turnkey right away, award-winning Interior Designer Eloise Kubli, ASID, of Collective Construction & Design, took immediate action. “The location and the architecture dictate what I do, as do the personalities of the people who live in them.”

Upon entering the home, the eye is taken on a visual treat of exotic luxury. Blending the fabulous ocean views within the living space with natural textures of Philippine Penshell, Cocoshell and Abalone together with dark espresso finishes and bamboo, the design becomes almost effortless. The Thassos marble floor bordered in black absolute granite is the continuing element throughout the home.

Using a clean, simple and open design concept, the Living Room exudes warmth and emphasizes natural textures and raw materials complemented with punches of bright color. The textures range from compact weaves to soft, supple leathers, evoking a sense of ease and comfort.

With ample seating for entertaining, the Leathercraft sofa and chairs and the Indo Puri cocktail tables are modern but not trendy, ageless in design and strong in their statement. The fusion of technology and design becomes the state-of-the-art home automation system that controls the audio/visual, lighting and motorized sun shades. The clients wanted the ultimate in light control which was solved by installing two layers of shades blackout and transparent with no compromise to the expansive ocean views beyond.
