grand balcony finale

A few weeks ago we left you hanging just a bit (with bated breath, I'm sure) as we shared what's been happening behind the scenes of the 35th floor balcony at the W. Lots of little loose ends have been tied up since then and we are oh so excited to share this outdoor gem with you.

Here is a quick revisit to the 50' blank canvas we were given to love on - 

And here is this beauty today - 

The custom sofa spans a large chunk of the space, offering more than a handful of comfy spots to enjoy the views of Town Lake. Undercover Upholstery worked their magic creating plump, inviting cushions wrapped in Holly Hunt outdoor fabric. 

This sofa turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving. In case you think you've reached maximum enjoyment sprawled out across the sofa - Topo Chico in hand & taking in all this balcony has to offer - do yourself a favor and slip back inside the unit. From there, you're able to see the playful, undulating form of the sofa - a visual delight in the most unexpected of places.

Our cushions were made to be removable and Petrified designed a great space for them to live when they aren't situated on the sofa. The storage cabinet takes its color & material cues from the sofa frame and combines them with teak, which is always a wonderful option to battle the elements. Two shelves line the inside and are able to be moved up or down depending on user preference. 

Who says greenery can't grow in the sky? We commissioned the talented team at Articulture to make a succulent garden grow and give a smidge of life to the 35th floor. And we have to say, we were taken aback by their green thumbs. Our three planters were dotted and lined with cacti and shells and driftwood and succulents of all sorts. These tiny little jungles sprinkled along the balcony were definitely the cherry on top.

And that's a wrap. We hope you've loved seeing this space unfold!
