A luxury apartment in New York City designed by Robert Couturier

High above mediocrity and on the 52nd floor high above New York’s cityscape, world famous interior designer Robert Couturier has unleashed his fabulous interior design talents on this spacious apartment in the 252 East 57th Street building, located on much desired Billionaire’s Row. This luxury apartment building has been designed by acclaimed Daniel Romualdez, A100 and Robert Couturier.

The 3000+ square foot, 3 bed rooms, 3,5 bath rooms apartment has been transformed into a well-balanced luxury home filled with light as you can see in some interior images below. The interior looks grand!


Robert himself explained a bit about what he was envisioning for this apartment during the design process:

  • Instead of creating a contemporary apartment,” Robert explained, “we wanted to balance the modern and light-filled rooms with traditional fabrics and furniture placements.
  • On the mix of furniture and decor, he “used contemporary furniture interspersed with antiques and strong art pieces.” He felt that “the tension between the modern and customary made for more dynamic and interesting spaces.”
  • Working within the space, Robert tells us: “The living room does not have an obvious furniture placement as a typical living room would, so it was interesting to come up with different solutions and ultimately settle on the one we felt was best for the space.”



The apartment also features a south-facing balcony with a lot of privacy, 11’ ceilings in the living and dining room, huge windows to give you dramatic views stretching from the East River to Central Park, and white oak floors everywhere in the apartment. There is even a window in the kitchen.

The master bedroom is generous in size and has two large closets and en-suite bathroom with radiant heat floors. Also it features a custom 6’ bathtub and a beautiful separate glass-enclosed shower.

This amazing luxury residence is currently listed for $7.995 million.
