Designer Spotlight: An Inside Look at The Harrison’s Model Residences
The Harrison is undoubtedly a beautiful building in a beautiful location, but it’s the interior design that really brings its residential and community spaces to life. The expertly curated artwork and the strategic white space, the couches that demand your attention and those that let other pieces take the spotlight. Below, meet the designers who have helped bring The Harrison to life.
World-renowned for his exquisite ways of marrying vintage and modern elements, Ken Fulk played a major role in shaping The Harrison’s visual identity, selecting all residence finishes and designing four models. The designer can be credited for the eclectic, sophisticated vibes of private social club The Battery, Leo’s Oyster Bar and our very own amenity spaces at The Harrison, from Uncle Harry’s to the Grand Salon and The Pantry. Here’s how to bring the Ken Fulk vibe into your own space.
With offices on both coasts, boutique firm SFA Design employs collaborative methods when crafting tailor-made spaces. They are known for their cozy yet sophisticated beachy interiors. In their two model residences at The Harrison, the team embraced the trend of comfortable minimalism: function at the forefront, without sacrificing style. Inspired by the stunning views of the San Francisco Bay, SFA Design used a palette of neutral, warm tones to softly complement the backdrop.
Following his creative start in New York, Michael Friedes brought his interior design business to the Bay Area in 2009. Over the last decade, Friedes has specialized in curating elegant yet livable residential spaces. Within The Harrison, Friedes is the creative force behind the Steinway Suite—the 49th floor penthouse, which comes fully furnished (including a $100,000 Steinway piano). The designer uses key statement pieces situated among modern minimalist furniture to add a touch of pizzazz, while letting the views of Twin Peaks and the San Francisco skyline take center stage.
Premier Stagers founders Summer Chàpin and celebrity interior designer Maxime Jacquet partner with furniture and art creators and curators from around the world to bring one-of-a-kind experiences into each interior project. The duo is the force behind some of the most iconic luxury projects—including The Carlyle Residences in Los Angeles and two of The Harrison’s model penthouses.
Jean Larette of Larette Design is an acclaimed interior designer who has been included among House Beautiful’s list of top designers in America multiple times and is consistently featured in the nation’s most prestigious magazines, from Elle Décor to California Home & Design. She is responsible for designing model 39C at The Harrison, which is beloved for its coastal details that accent modern finishes throughout.
