Ease of living is what attracts many homebuyers to the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Long Island, North Hills, where amenities include housekeeping, pet walking, shoe shines and a coffee bar adjacent to the lobby. What could be more enticing? Ease of moving in. Nobody enjoys the chore of moving—all that stuff!—so RXR Realty, developer of the Ritz-Carlton property in North Hills, decided to sweeten the deal by offering this major inducement: New homebuyers can have their suites custom furnished by Safavieh at no extra charge. To experience the synergy that two leading luxury brand names, Ritz-Carlton and Safavieh, can bring to a private home, prospective buyers may tour any of the Ritz-Carlton penthouse models that Safavieh has furnished. Highlights of two of these model residences are presented on these pages. In fashioning the model home you see here, “glamour” was the key word the designers kept in mind. Iris Carias and Beena Ramachandra, interior designers based at Safavieh’s Glen Cove showroom, selected curvaceous seating, simply but luxuriously upholstered, for the living room. They added acrylic, glass and metallic tables, including an Art Deco-style bar cart, faux fur throws Because the dining area (right) is open to the main living space, the designers fostered an open look by selecting a table with an acrylic base. In the living room (previous spread), they chose curvaceous furniture in muted upholstery to convey the glamour of Old Hollywood.
