“In the Clouds.” Oscar Isberian Rugs help bring the comforts of home to a sky-high Chicago penthouse.

From the September/October issue of Luxe Interiors + Design Chicago, Interior Designer Brynn Olson helps a penthouse become a dream home. Surrounded by steel and glass skyscrapers, Olson was tasked with elevating the creature comforts of home to new heights. 

The renovation included new baseboards, crown molding, new paneling, custom floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves filled with a curated selection of contents to create a sense of a more lived-in collection. Among the eclectic selections include a stunning cobalt William McLure painting alongside the work of renowned local artists. 

The finished project traded rich, dark materials and finishes for a lighter, warmer palate and furnishing to better suit the sunlit atmosphere and homey ambiance. Included in the redesign, a living room of sophisticated comfort overlooking the Chicago cityscape, featuring custom sectionals and a cashmere area rug by Oscar Isberian. 

Congratulations to Brynn Olson and the homeowner on this beautiful home. To see more, check out “In the Clouds” in the most recent issue of Luxe Interiors + Design, and to view our collection of new and antique rugs, visit our website or visit a Chicagoland showroom near you.
