Robb Report Shows Off The Steinway Suite’s $100,000 Piano

Robb Report writes on The Harrison’s famed Steinway Suite, featuring its $100,000 Steinway Model M high-resolution player piano. Gorgeously placed within The Harrison, the piano is described to be a major selling point for musically minded buyers. 

“The smartphone-enabled piano uses high-tech software and sensors to self-play hundreds of hours for music (making it the perfect choice for those who love the piano but don’t know how to play it). ‘The best part is even if you’re not trained to play, you still get the richness of the symphony sound,’ says Bree Long, managing director of Compass Development. Of course, the piano can be played the regular way too. The fully furnished penthouse, which marries swanky sophistication with 1940s-era glamour, is on the market for $3.7 million.”

Inside The Harrison’s Steinway Penthouse with Designer Michael Friedes

The Harrison’s Steinway Suite has garnered a great deal of acclaim since its unveiling, and while the piano and remarkable views are certainly a key factor in its allure, much of this praise can be attributed to designer Michael Friedes’ beautifully curated interiors. We sat down with the award-winning San Francisco designer to gain insight into his designing process, his various inspirations and the unique pieces he decided to integrate into the truly glam sky-high penthouse.

What made you particularly excited about the opportunity to design our Steinway Suite at The Harrison?

I was thrilled to be selected to design the final model at The Harrison. I love the building and how they made a point of giving it such a unique vibe that really sets it apart from all the other new condo buildings. When I first walked into the penthouse I was struck by the dramatic view and seemingly endless wall of windows.

In my head, I immediately thought of a fabulous cocktail party with a stunning sunset sky and a radiance of cool elegance. That is when I knew I had to draw on my relationship with Steinway Piano to be a part of it. Once I knew we had one of their amazing pianos in place, I knew the vision was ready to be set into motion.


What inspired the overall design?

The look and feel I went with is an updated 1940’s glamorous New York penthouse. There is a sophistication that is balanced with whimsy; there are neutrals that are juxtaposed with pops of colors and textures. I wanted to show in the large main living area that you could easily accommodate a baby grand piano and two distinct seating areas.

Are there any pieces that you’re particularly fond of?

The sitting area by the piano is anchored by two custom barrel swivel chairs that are made up in a charming black and white abstract fabric. I chose this fabric because it reminded me of an abstracted version of piano keys, as an interior design who also is an abstract painter, the visual was spot on. I love the idea of swivel chairs in this area so one could take full advantage of the incredible city views, or easily turn and be a part of the conversation within the room.

You’ve included some beautiful art in the penthouse, including pieces of your own. Can you tell us about them?

One cannot miss the beautiful bar cabinet in the foyer area which has a charming tuxedo clad mannequin photo above it that I took in Los Angeles. The original artwork above the sofa in the main seating area are two of my latest pieces that I created specifically for this room. And, as you can probably tell, the bold colors and movement I’ve included throughout are my interpretation of music playing. I sorted through hundreds of album covers, and on another wall are enlarged album covers that continue the musical vibe to the penthouse. The piece of artwork above the banquette in the kitchen is likewise a whimsical nod to a symphony conductor and was done by an artist from Europe.

Living Room

What was your inspiration for the vibrant guest room?

The guest bedroom was inspired by the 1960’s lucite and turquoise chair that I found in Palm Springs. I wanted this room to feel fun, yet light. I loved the idea of bringing in all sorts of blues, grays and silvers. The 1970’s acrylic lamps are also a Palm Springs find specifically for this project. The room comfortably fits a queen bed and I love the idea of laying in bed and enjoying the views from the corner walls of glass.

How do you imagine the Steinway Suite’s future owner living here?

I can see the future owners spending a great deal of time in the beautiful kitchen; the dining area is a charming spot to multitask in. The banquette creates a space for intimate dinners or enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning with ones laptop while gazing out as the city beneath is on the go. Overall, though, this penthouse condo is the perfect home to enjoy—whether you’re entertaining or relaxing with the incredible sound emanating from your Steinway Piano. And the decor is meant to echo it all!

Dining Room

Top Dog at The Harrison: Coco

Nickname: Coco Loco

Breed: Pomeranian

Treat Of Choice: Mini-Dingos are my favorite…also Greenies.

Greatest loves: My mom is definitely my number one love. But I also enjoy running wildly down the hallway, quacking at the slightest provocation; anything that even smells like a treat; a freshly-washed fluffy bed; and trips to Carmel where people dote on me and tell me I’m adorable.

Pet peeves: More than anything in the world, I hate when my dad picks me up and holds me in the air like a stuffed animal. Other pet peeves include knocks on the door, or the ring of a doorbell; when someone tries to take any of my (many) toys; knots in my fur; attempts to brush my teeth; and not being the center of attention when my brother is around.

Favorite neighborhood establishments: The Embarcadero (EmBARKadero); birthday parties next door at 333 Harrison with my friend Scooby; and The Harrison Grand Salon—everyone there is nice and gives me a hug.


Favorite spot in my high-rise home: My absolute favorite spot is the little crevice between the column and the wall in our living room, where no one can see me. I also like my little yellow Ferrari car bed in the guest room.

Favorite perks at The Harrison: I like the Pantry, especially the crumbs that people leave on the ground, and the staff in the Grand Salon—they always open the door for me and say hello every morning.

Morning routine: I typically wake up the very second that my parents stir in the other room. Immediately, I start to scuffle around and quack. I quack A LOT. Then I tell my brother to get in on the action and make noise. Eventually, after I get food, my mom takes me to the best area for peeing outside One Rincon Hill.

Top tricks: I’m really good at jumping off couches, beds and other high surfaces that give my parents a scare…every time. I’m also great at yoga stretches (by the way, downward dog is so cliche) and organizing my toys into little clusters around the apartment.


Guilty pleasures: Peeing on the white-and-blue carpet (very hard to clean); listening to Carly Rae Jepsen (Call Me Maybe); and staring at myself in the mirror. I find it very soothing.

Most embarrassing story: I’m 5 years old and I wear a diaper. End of story.

Where I first laid eyes on my mom/dad/family: At first I was chasing my brothers around, antagonizing them and trying to bite their tails. Then, my mom came into the room. She picked me up off the floor, gave me a kiss and the rest is history.

Follow me on social media @: My parents manage my social media presence, you can follow them at @GabyDellan and @samuelbrock0116 on Instagram.

Tell us a little about your owner: My mom and dad work on television. My Mom is a weathercaster for Telemundo 48 and my Dad is a reporter for NBC Bay Area. Therefore, I’m a bilingual doggie 🙂
