The most contemporary of the three lateral apartments, Number Four
is also the most streamlined in design, with architectural loft features used to dramatic effect within the
context of classic luxury–a witty hybrid, born of the best of both worlds.
Light dances a welcome in the entrance hall, clad in squares of bevelled mirror and crystal sconces. To enter
Number Four is indeed to enter aworld of light andmirrors, a clever creation of space and illusion, with hidden
doors and furniture that borrows from the vocabulary of couture.
The heart of the home is the reception and dining room, whose lofty, apex ceiling brings a touch of Manhattan
to Mayfair and lends the apartment its unique character. The room’s clean lines are echoed in the stunning
back-lit onyx display unit with a state of the art fireplace, contemporary velvet sofa and Christopher Guy
armchairs, all centred around a sleek dark Emperador marble coffee table by Baxter.
The living space flows into the dining area, where a wave-fronted Venetian mirror-glass sideboard assumes
pride of place, redolent of 1930's Art Deco splendour. It is challenged for visual supremacy by Aiveen Daly’s
dining room chairs – with their super-skinny, shiny-black legs and frame swathed in a tassled sash – that
surround the lacquered glass table. The correspondingly cool, sleek functionality of the spacious Boffi kitchen
also has its surprises – quirky, faux pony-skin stools and an unexpected touch of romance introduced by the
delicate Swan-wing chandelier.
The dramatic apex ceiling also features in the master bedroom, increasing the sense of air and light, its
modernity a foil to the delicate Murano glass chandelier that hangs below. The room’s metallic tones are
softened by the warm contours of the furnishings and the sheen of grey tulip veneer cupboards, while niches
decorated in ethically sourced and rapidly renewable capiz shell mosaic are offset by contemporary dark
wood furnishings and distinguished book-matched Calacatta marble that creates a striking backdrop to the
double-ended bath.
Elements of this warm bronze and silvery colour scheme are reflected in the two additional bedrooms, whose
contrasting bathrooms range from the romance of antiqued Venetian glass units, to the drama of high gloss
black Portoro marble. Attention to detail is paramount throughout, the juxtaposition of elements resulting in
a unique vision of style that is Number Four.
