This gorgeous midtown home says mod from top to bottom. Designer Robert Couturier is responsible for the apartment’s impeccable interior design, and according to Couturier, “décor above all else, must be appropriate to the architecture, to the clients, and to the setting.” Keeping that in mind, the cool stylings and playful details infused throughout this apartment have us convinced that the owners are the kind of folks we’d like to meet.

The living room features custom-made sofas, a delicate Crochet chair from Marcel Wanders and two 1960s Paul Tuttle chairs upholstered in an Élitis velvet. The space also has a funky lamp from Hervé Van der Straeten and a bronze cocktail table by Hubert le Gall, all accented by the expansive windows and skyline views.

Moving out of the living room and into the study, the design aesthetic shifts from smooth undulating shapes to sharp bold textiles and patterns. The desk is designed by Alessandro Albrizzi and is complimented by a custom-made daybed and 1970s Brazilian chair.

The kitchen and dining room’s design is softer and less vibrant than some of the other communal living spaces, but they still maintain the signature mod feel (that curtain is practically screaming Twiggy).

The whimsical yet sophisticated lighting sprinkled throughout this home is packed with surprises, and the master bedroom is no exception. Two flower-shaped table lamps frame the bed’s lavish headboard, while two more industrial sconces are mounted above. But the most notable detail in the master is the wooden wall panel that depicts the New York City skyline.

The apartment also has two additional bedrooms that both feature brightly-colored bedding and equally stimulating wall treatments.

Moving through this home is almost as exciting as moving through a museum. Each room appears to have its own theme, and the entire space exudes a childlike playfulness while still maintaining a modern and classy aesthetic. Like this apartment? See more from Robert Couturier here.
