Created in collaboration with acclaimed jewelry designer Martin Katz, the multifaceted Jewel Suite by Martin Katz encompasses 5,000 square feet in an extravagant triplex, one of New York’s most imaginative and opulent spaces. Radiant, Art Deco-inspired elements anchor the aesthetic, reflecting the rich glamour of the early Twentieth Century against sweeping views of the dramatic Manhattan skyline.
The entry and grand staircase celebrate light and reflection with a two-story “cascading crystal” chandelier in sculptural harmony with floating jewelry displays showcasing Katz creations valued in excess of $1.5 million. Each piece of jewerly is one-of-a-kind or limited in production, signed, numbered and made with meticulous attention to detail. Martin’s passion for gems has earned him wide acclaim for designing beautifully-crafted, couture-quality pieces inspired from his love of vintage jewelry – contemporary pieces with an ‘old soul’.
Port Laurent stone flooring and diamond-esque wall coverings compliment panel drapery in the adjacent Grand Parlor, where floor-to-ceiling windows provide breathtaking views of Midtown Manhattan. The room features mid-century and vintage but contemporary pieces of furniture as well. Exquisite pieces from Boca do Lobo and Koket provide this lascive and opulent touch to this luxury suite.
