Contemporary Penthouse Design Project in Sacramento, California

The penthouse designed by Benning Design Construction has a stunning view of the city of Sacramento, California, and design brand Brabbu created designer lighting fixtures for the main area of this house – living and dining room. The build-company was created by father and son that originated from two of Sacramento’s established and successful interior design and construction firms.

This penthouse was designed with a comfortable contemporary aesthetic. “Citified with a bit of glamour” was the mantra – and it was a huge challenge for the designers. The highest priority in this interior design project was to allow the sight to remain free and able to speak for itself. To still be able to provide interesting design elements, products were intentionally kept either low to the ground or high to the ceiling.

Upon entering the penthouse, the immediate artistic focal point is a bold bronze sculpture at the window, drawing the eye to the glass and the view. The entryway design features a bronze stainless steel and wood console against a backdrop of precious stone. The walls and ceilings were given a faux finish of metallic woven, grass-cloth texture, bringing an element of glamour and drama to the interior space.

The house is glass-surrounded and to avoid issues with glare, every lighting element is dimmable and soft. Horus suspension light from Brabbu crowns the great room with a hint of European sensibility and charm. The shape of this lighting product has the perfect height as it hugs the ceiling, providing glamourous detail while not blocking the view.

Horus Suspension Light promises to be a reference in any modern interior design. In this penthouse, it is amazing how this lighting fixture embraces the living room and gives it the contemporary touch that the designers were looking for. Featuring a structure in matte black lacquered brass and shades in crackle glass, this chandelier creates the grand reveal over this fierce living room.

To contrast the linear aspects of the great room, a large irregularly-shaped sectional seating was placed. The sectional provides flexible seating with opportunity for both internal and external views, conversation, or reading. It was paired with two iconic Mario Bellini lounge chairs that provide an elegant designer vibe to this interior space. The great room is anchored by a 20’ round wool rug, which also serves to establish a separate area within the larger scope of the penthouse space.

Moving into the dining room, individual pendant lamps adorn the split dining table. The custom dining table top became a true piece of art. It showcases a laser-cut brass panel with a map of Sacramento, the client’s hometown, speaking to his passion for maps and adding another layer of dimension and interest.

The interior designers wanted to give the penthouse a special touch, with the tastes, preferences, and memories of the clients. For this, in the Master bedroom, an art piece was placed above the bed, blending a lifetime of poems, photographs, and song lyrics into a visual representation of a classic love story.

Adjacent to this art piece is a full-size print of the client’s photography, backlit and custom-framed to add personality to a bedroom full of exquisite art. A collection of outstanding pieces, that would make any art collector proud, complete this couple’s penthouse. By taking into consideration customers’ preferences, Benning Design Constructions created a perfect house for a weekend getaway with stunning city views and relaxing spaces.
