President Donald Trump’s son has praised the work of Matteo Nunziati, who used Italian marble to decorate the newly opened Trump Towers in Pune.
The Milan-based interior designer decorated every room in the pair of 26-storey residential towers, using only furnishings from Italian brands. To mark the completion of the project, Donald Trump Jr attended the opening of the second tower, called Tower B.
“Donald Trump Jr has expressed a strong appreciation for the high level of the interior design project, stating that it could be a London or New York project, and the finishes would still be the best residential ones he has ever seen,” said a spokesperson for Studio Matteo Nunziati.
Italian marble features heavily in the interiors, from the columns of the grand lobbies through to the floors of the apartments.
Silk georgette and silver travertine marble covers much of the walls, floors and columns of the reception area, with traditional Indian motifs carved into the stone. Twisting bronze sculptures are scattered throughout the lobby.
Products by Molteni & C, B & B Italia and Fontana Arte are among the furniture pieces chosen.
The design team said it aimed to produce an “atmosphere of cosy and timeless elegance” in the residences.
Modular linen sofas are set against the marble floors to invoke a European style sensibility. Intricate glass chandeliers by Italian brand La Murrina hang over the dining table, which is separated from an open-plan living area by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors.
A “decorative library” with shelves of wood and glass divides the entrance of each apartment from the main living area.
On the dedicated podium floor, residents can make use of an outdoor pool with fitness and yoga areas, two massage rooms, a reading area, a business centre and a whole room given over entirely to playing poker.
Each one of the 46 residences occupies an entire floor of the tower, offering over 566 square metres of accommodation.
The residential complex is situated in the Kalyani Nagar district of Pune.
The project was developed by Pachshil Realty, which is licensed to use the Trump name.
