On Thursday September 18th, Elad Group, developer of Westwood’s top-selling luxury condo building, The Carlyle Residences, together with leading retailer and design studio, Cantoni, unveiled The Cantoni Home. Soaring 18 stories above the Wilshire Corridor, the residence is the newest designer model home at The Carlyle and the latest in a series of apartments available fully furnished at the building. The curated collection of model homes has facilitated partnerships with top-tier design firms such as FENDI Casa, Meridith Baer, Bowery Design Group, Oliver Furth and most recently Minotti, enabling buyers to view and purchase a custom-crafted, turnkey home from some of the world’s most renowned brands in interior design.
Over 80 VIP guests, including current and prospective buyers, members of the interior design and real estate industries, and representatives from Cantoni, Elad and The Agency, the building’s exclusive sales and marketing team, toured the newest designer model on display at The Carlyle.
The Cantoni Home showcases the design studio’s coveted portfolio of contemporary furnishings, art and accessories. In order to create a stylish urban oasis and enhance the residence’s sweeping city views, the Cantoni design team artfully outfitted the elegant home by selecting a neutral color palette and sophisticated pieces from Cantoni’s Dress Code and Love Letters collections. Handcrafted in Italy using sustainably sourced exotic woods, each piece is finished in high gloss lacquer and appointed with elegant leather detailing with chrome accents. Artwork throughout the space includes vintage photography featuring Hollywood icons as well as one-of-a-kind abstract works commissioned exclusively for Cantoni. The spacious two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom residence is available fully furnished at $3.425 million.
Enjoying an assorted spread of hors d’oeuvres and blinis, fine caviar and cocktails provided by Petrossian, guests were able to tour the magnificent interiors showcasing approximately $205,000 worth of furnishings while also enjoying the spaciousness of the home itself, complete with The Carlyle’s signature double door entry from the residence’s keyless elevator foyer, stunning floor to ceiling windows in every room, in home laundry room and private den.
“We are thrilled to launch The Cantoni Home, our latest designer collaboration and possibly our last as the building draws closer to full occupancy,” said Samantha Sax, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Elad Group. “Our most recent designer partnership with Minotti has proved a huge success, and with that residence set to open escrow in the next week, we look forward to offering buyers a new design aesthetic from which they can draw inspiration. Cantoni’s elegance and sophistication is very much in line with our target demographic, and therefore, we are confident that this new model residence will help drive the momentum through our final sales push at The Carlyle.”
In addition to impeccable design and a high-floor apartment, the Cantoni Home buyer will also have access to the building’s lavish amenities which include 24-hour white glove concierge service and valet, an all-season pool, temperature-controlled wine cellar with private storage lockers, fully-equipped fitness center, an outdoor fireplace and gorgeous gardens complete with lush landscaping, BBQ and private seating areas. A one-of-a-kind sculpture by Dale Chihuly, specifically commissioned for The Carlyle, adorns the FENDI Casa-furnished grand lobby, and other amenity spaces include a FENDI Casa-furnished lounge and adjoining salon with catering kitchen as well as beautifully appointed private dining room with butler’s pantry, available for residents’ personal use.
Remaining residences in the building range from 2,772-square-foot two-bedrooms to 3,535-square-foot three-bedrooms and start at $2.595 million.
