Curious Yellow Design Ascends to a Wall Street Penthouse
Curious Yellow Design’s Anna Cappelen and Chloe Pollack-Robbins have brought a sense of warm restraint to restaurants and residences from Oslo to Sagaponack. So when the owners of the penthouse of Piet Boon’s updated Art Deco gem 101 Wall Street called, the pair knew just what to do.
“The space is clean and simple, so we wanted the design to be elegant, playful, and comfortable,” says Pollack-Robbins. The pair kept the palette a cool white throughout the 3,100-square-foot apartment, to complement Boon’s oak-stained flooring. Then they livened it up with bright artwork by Gustavo Rizerio, NG Collective, and Bethany Brooke.
“It’s important to use spaces you wouldn’t think about to draw your eye there, and make the room feel larger,” Pollack-Robbins says. Case in point: the office, where they tucked a classic Hans Wegner chair into a corner, creating a nook that offers views of the ample patio and an iconic photograph of Tina Turner.
