Donna Mondi‘s love of blending classical architecture with modernity aligned perfectly with their clients’ taste and their eclectic condo in Chicago’s groundbreaking One Bennett Park. This stunning high-rise has gained much respect due to the architectural design by New York’s renowned Robert A.M. Stern. Taking their cues from the classical intention of the building and working with local artisans designers created beautiful furnishings throughout, curated commissioned art and added decadent fabrics and rich area rugs to anchor every room.
Every wall within the home is treated with specialty paint finishes, custom millwork, upholstered panels, or wall coverings and while it was a challenging task the result is breathtakingly cohesive. The fireplace is a standout with custom steel cabinets and shelving, a dramatic marble surround, and a backdrop of textured plaster to create the focal point the client desired. The Master Bedroom called for a statement bed wall of shimmery velvet juxtaposed with natural steel framework. Lighting throughout enhances every room and highlights design elements, amplifies textures and spotlights curated furnishings. A breathtaking space that pays homage to the integrity of the architecture with interior designs inspired from the sophistication of Chanel boutiques, the effortless elegance of French interiors and the grittiness of a London flat.
