The easiest way to transform a neutral nook into a chic and comfortable party zone is by filling it with (rented) posh pieces perfect for a penthouse. Part 007, part plush Art Deco, this look is created with leather swivel chairs, velvet couches, silvery coffee tables, and one striking chandelier. Add masses of votives to cast a warm glow and a fresh gerbera daisy pillow for a pop art touch.
