Luxury Condo on Longboat Key

MLI is in the final stages of completion of a luxury contemporary vacation condo on pristine private beaches with breathtaking views of the Gulf. This project captures the raw beauty of natural materials and the sophistication of a beach house without the usual kitschy references. Clean and modern lines and a soothing palette were developed to be a complementary backdrop for the ever changing colors of the horizon and the sea. This modern, tranquil interpretation of MLI’s love of seaside living features rich wood, clean architectural lines and an elegant palette of crisp shades of beige and white.

New Feadship 114′

This new Feadship, one of the newly launched triplets, has been designed for another veteran yachtsman who knows exactly what he wants and thoroughly enjoys every aspect of the design process which included shopping expeditions in Amsterdam, London and New York. The sleek refinement of a glass encased salon emerges in a mix of smooth leather, stained textural woods, bronze and a minimized palette of grey, cream and taupe.   Floor to ceiling salon windows were maximized by a carefully thought out furniture plan with a dramatic backlit onyx panel as the focal point of the dining space. Throughout the yacht, an interplay of smooth vs. rough, shiny vs. matte, creates a tactile experience that is very much appreciated by this client. The foyer staircase features a large laser etched pointillism panel executed from a photograph taken by the client, an accomplished photographer.  This truly innovative yacht is scheduled to complete this June 2017

New 78′ Sanlorenzo

The sleek lines of the new 78 are enhanced by the minimalistic interior of this vessel. Midcentury modernism is evoked in this ship shape setting featuring a balanced mixture of contemporary styling. Subtly restrained stained oak woodwork and soft lacquers are juxtaposed against a dramatically imperfect and irregular plank flooring which shows the track of the saw cutting creating unique overlaps of color effects and texture.Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 10.57.32 AM

Fashioned with modern elegance and undertones of minimalism, this sophisticated décor features well-tailored furniture and fixtures by Minotti , RH modern, Flos, Zucchetti and Roda. The stone dining table is surrounded by the iconic, award winning DU 3 chair designed by Rinaldi in 1953 and recently reintroduced by Poltrana Frau. Supple leathers deftly layered with luxurious Italian embroidered linens and cashmere add yet another dimension to this rich décor schemeScreen Shot 2017-04-11 at 10.57.41 AM

The deliberate and precise lines of this Sanlorenzo yacht heighten the alluring contrast of the tailored cabinetry combined with the abstract statement of loose watercolors and brushstroke fabrics and the drama of the flooring to form a warm understated ambience.
