The new luxury skyscraper, in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, is an architectural wonder in both scale and design, with interiors that impressively marry modernity and comfort. When the developers tapped three leading interior designers to craft the model residences, they called us to collaborate and make sure the bed and bath linens were on par with these thoughtfully-designed living spaces.
200 Amsterdam, the new luxury skyscraper in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, is an architectural wonder that needs little embellishment given its spectacular height and stunning design. Breathtaking 360 degree views of the city, and over-the-top amenities—like a spa with a 75’ heated saltwater pool and infrared sauna—are just the beginning. Most importantly, the interior architecture of each residence is an impressive marriage of modernity and comfort.
The developers of 200 Amsterdam tapped three leading New York City-based interior designers to craft the model residences; naturally they wanted to make sure each one showcased bed and bath linens on par with the thoughtfully-designed living spaces. That’s when they called Matouk. And we were honored to be a part of this story.
We recently had the opportunity to speak with these design tastemakers to hear about their experience bringing these rooms to life. Here’s what each had to say:
A 20-year veteran of New York City’s design community, Andre Mellone is a Brazilian interior designer based in New York. His studio, Studio Mellone, primarily focuses on private homes and residences, but has developed a complementary portfolio of retail, commercial and product design projects.
“When I first saw the penthouse at 200 Amsterdam, I knew that I wanted to convey a very distinct point of view. Drawing inspiration from Manhattan in the 1960s and 70s — think Halston’s famed Upper East Side townhouse and the lavish studio headquarters Olympic Tower — I approached the design with the intention of respecting the home’s refined architecture and thoughtful layout while enhancing the spectacular views of the cinematic cityscape that can be seen for miles in every direction.”
“To provide the home with a playful yet timeless character, I curated a cohesive collection of vintage and contemporary items sourced from around the world. In the primary bedroom suite, a bespoke bed spans the length of the room and faces the windows, inviting the resident to wake up to these magnificent views.”
“Created in-house by Studio Mellone, the bed features a Minimalist, Mid-Century-inspired custom design with integrated nightstands. Woven in Italy, Matouk’s Bergamo bedding with honey and subtle accents perfectly pairs with the upholstered bench and neutral tones throughout the bedroom. Matouk’s bedding helps to create a contemporary yet timeless style that seamlessly fits within the penthouse’s sumptuous aesthetic.”
Bennett Leifer Interiors is an award-winning studio known for blending sophisticated color palettes, historical references and whimsical concepts to design uniquely tailored interiors.
“ As we got a sense of who 200 Amsterdam was geared towards, we took into account the beautiful architecture of the building itself, the amazing finishes and also the dynamic nature of the neighborhood. There is a lot of color impact and there are a lot of sculptural shapes but they’re very subtle. You see the texture in the foyer and you begin to see what is going on with the relationship between the patterns and the shapes. For the bedrooms in particular, you have great windows with great views, so we wanted to make those color stories that just sort of unfolded as you experienced them.”
“Bedding is such an important aspect of design for several reasons. But, from a design aspect, it really pulls everything together. Whatever size your mattress is, that's a huge amount of real estate from a design perspective. I like to use bedding as this sort of tool to pull a lot of different colors from the room together. What Matouk does so well is it has all of these different offerings in terms of colors of base materials, but then you can mix and match your accents. In this apartment, I particularly used Lowell and Louise because I was able to use that bounding detail to pull so many colors in. Using Matouk, helped me tie everything together in a very understated way that stuck with my overall vision for the unit.”
Founded by interior designer Jarvis Wong and based in New York City, Jarvisstudio creates modern and eclectic looks using luxurious finishes and materials with bespoke detailing and artisanal craftsmanship.
“200 Amsterdam is perfectly situated in one of Manhattan’s most family-friendly destinations. With this in mind, I envisioned the homeowner to be a young family of five and aimed to create a sophisticated urban oasis that would complement their active lifestyle. I wanted to design a living environment that is child-friendly, but also stylish.”
“Matouk offers a range of designs that are beautifully suited for the elegant primary bedroom, as well as the more whimsical nature of the children's bedrooms. Each linen set has patterns and colors that enhance the personality of each room.”
Matouk is proud to be a part of this groundbreaking addition to luxury living on Manhattan’s historic Upper West Side. 200 Amsterdam is a special place to call home and create memories for years to come.
