Rectifying Rarity


As developers move beyond only collaborating with revered design houses for finished kitchens and bathrooms or curated selections of furnishings for their projects, to expanding designers' scope to include creating custom-made furniture, decor and interior packages, Abode2 takes a look at some standout examples

Individualised to buyers' tastes while still in line with the development's overarching design theme, these packages not only feature bespoke furniture designs that aren't available for sale anywhere else, but invaluable one-on-one time with designers for styling and detail work as well.

Catering especially to the luxury buyer seeking a space that doesn't look like a run-of-the-mill home or already furnished unit, which tends to be sterile, mass-produced and straight out of the warehouse, these new designs add personality and soul to new developments.

Eager to step up to the challenge of transforming a standard "white box" apartment into a masterpiece, designers and artisans are perfecting customisations like shelving and moulding to craft exclusive furniture produced specifically for the condos they are designing, so that buyers feel that their space is their own and doesn't look like any other residence in the building.

Truly exclusive in offerings, Abode2 discovers how the most luxurious new residences in new development come with several options for fully furnished interiors that have been hand-drawn, produced and customized by top designers, providing residents with an original home without the hassle of a long design process.

1508 London's "Tradizionale" and "Contemporaneo" at Cipriani Residences Miami

Nestled in the heart of Brickell, Miami's bustling business district, Cipriani Residences Miami is the brand's first ground-up development in the US that bestows Italian hospitality upon highly personalized and residents-only experiences. Among the boutique experiences offered within the tower's exclusive Canaletto Collection, the limited 74-home assemblage of 68 residences and six penthouses on the top 18 floors of the tower, are custom finish and furniture packages designed by internationally renowned design firm 1508 London.

1508 London's design director and principal, Leo Bertacchini, has curated elaborate packages upgrading the interior architecture of the residences, from the mouldings to the shelving, and completing the interior design, with two distinct sets of furnishing and accessories expertly crafted to fit the style of Cipriani. The 'Tradizionale' was created in the signature Cipriani aesthetic, complete with leather inserts to console tabletops, decorative piping to ottomans and signature timber to joineries and furniture, while the more contemporary, 'Contemporaneo' features boucle fabric to upholstery, alabaster finish to wall lights and more. Completion is expected in 2026 and pricing starts at $1.7 million.
