In 2017, Studio DA architectural firm asked us to partially furnish the interior, but in the end we worked to fit the interior out down to the last detail, including crockery and cutlery. This was Yurta Interiors’ first major project.

The living room is an important area in any house, and we used natural colors—like creamy deep brown and cool white marble with gray veins—and shapes inspired by its sparse architectural design. A chandelier by Paolo Castelli, made of Venetian borosilicate glass tubes encircled with a metal band with a multi-layered plating of matte gold, accentuates the interior. The inner supporting frame is made of nickel-plated metal.
The second floor houses a gym, a library, a cinema, and areas for reading and for spending time together. We furnished one of these areas with the Caruso “singing” cabinet by Miniforms. This witty design piece plays music and invites listeners to dance. The wall is decorated with a Hermès panel, its colors playing off both the matte black and gold of the cabinet and the overall room palette.

One of the accents in the interior is the iconic B&B Italia armchair. A floor lamp by Aromas del Campo complements this private area — not just an element of décor, the lamp is also a convenient source of light for evening reading.
An airy canopy and a fluffy chair by Sitland Corso add a dreamy, cozy touch to the girl’s bedroom.

The room of the younger son features modular furniture that will grow alongside its owner. A rug by Linie Design pulls the furnishings together and energizes the room with its geometric pattern.

A wall panel in the room of the elder son evokes the snow-capped peaks of the mountains visible from the windows of the house. It was custom made according to the client’s sketches by a carpentry workshop in Almaty.
We decorated the glass wall between the parents’ bedroom and the atrium with pearl-gray Loro Piana drapes so that the owners could choose whether to enjoy the mountain view or instead create a cozy chamberlike atmosphere.

The tobacco-colored chandeliers hanging on leather ropes were produced by Contardi Italia to our design specifications. They add a unique twist to the otherwise austere architectural forms.
