Brad Ford Outfits New York’s Largest Living Room.
High-end interior designers are no strangers to outfitting spaces on rather grand scales. But for Brad Ford, the penthouse at One Hundred Barclay was in a league of its own, even by the standards of today’s über-luxe condos. “When I saw the penthouse initially without any furniture, as a designer, the first thing I thought was, This is a new level of scale and proportion,” recalls the designer, who was commissioned by developers Magnum Real Estate Group and CIM Group to outfit the building’s crown jewel: a duplex penthouse on the 32nd and 33rd floors.
According to the developers, it is, indeed, a new level of scale and proportion: The building touts its penthouse’s living room as the single largest in New York City, clocking in at a staggering 3,168 square feet. 22-foot windows and grandiose 21-foot arched windows further highlight the scale—and draw the eye up and out to the breathtaking views of the Hudson River and Statue of Liberty below.
