Interior designer Charles Allem gutted a young family’s Manhattan penthouse, converting it into a glamorous space that celebrates Art Déco style.
The living room is “relaxed but formal,” notes Allem, who worked with architect Josh Heitler, of Lacina Heitler Architects. A 1937 work by Picasso hangs over the mantelpiece. Pair of 1930s French cabinets and wood-arm chairs, Karl Kemp Antiques. Stark carpet.
