Located in northern Tribeca, just across from Hudson River Park on the border of Soho, the Truffles Privé is a 7,000-square-foot private club attached to two large full-service apartment buildings. Back in 2009, this exclusive and beautifully decorated club helped to rent 90 of the 291 apartments in just six weeks after being on the market with no advertising. The interior design was the result of a collaboration between interior architecture firm Povero & Company and the design team lead by David Cafiero. The details that make up this interior are an eclectic combination of intelligent curation and out-of-the-box creativity.

The design accessories found throughout the space represent a variety of styles and time periods, and include everything from an opium bed, horse-riding ribbons, and first-edition books from the shelves of American essayist Gore Vidal.

There’s no lacking of fun and entertainment inside the space as visitors have a variety of game options to choose from including a Nintendo Wii, red dice, and a teal backgammon set. To support the many gaming needs the space fulfills, it also has individual lockers for tenants to store alcohol.
