Yabu Pushelberg designed a luxury apartment in one of London’s most coveted buildings, No. 1 Grosvenor Square, a vibrant and luxurious design unfolds. Around the corner from Bond Street and Mount Street, No. 1 Grosvenor Square has long held a reputation for being one of London’s most desirable addresses. Now, with a little help from developers Lodha UK and the design duo Yabu Pushelberg.
Overlooking the largest square in Mayfair, the building features 44 elegant residential units, each with its own private lift and entrance foyer that leads to a sumptuously decorated apartment that carries the indelible signature of the New York-based designers. Being greeted by are, in an indigo blue vase Hermés sets the tone for what is about to unfold: a luxurious, decadently layered vision that acknowledges the distinction of the building and the refined taste of its new dwellers.
At the heart of the apartment is a light and airy living room, anchored by an imposing silk rug and framed by windows that usher in that crisp London light and fantastic views of the square.
Wallpapers made from linen and from natural hand-dyed Raphia anoint the main bedroom. In a nod to the Art Deco years coinciding with the period that the building was built in, a four-poster bed takes pride of place, complemented with table lamps designed by Kelly Wearstler and fluted wall lights sourced in Italy.
In typical Yabu Pushelberg style, in this London apartment, art is just as important as design. Throughout the residence, the art in the hallways has been sourced from Cadogan gallery, and the gold disk decorating the wall is made of brass, designed exclusively for the space.
With period features, including coffered high ceilings, cornicing, and large windows, each bedroom is well-proportioned with luxurious finishing, including a bespoke walk-in wardrobe providing a tranquil retreat from city living.
