Smallbone wins £13 million contract for prestigious Manhattan development

50 West 66th Street, Manhattan

The Lux Group, parent company of luxury kitchen brand Smallbone, has won a multimillion-pound contract to supply bespoke kitchens and bathrooms for 127 residences at a prestigious new development in Manhattan, New York.

The $2 billion project at 50 West 66th Street is Smallbone’s 12th collaboration with Extell Development and Smallbone has also installed its joinery in several complete apartments. A variety of options are now open to the public in the developer’s remote sales gallery.

Commenting on the contract, Lux Group owner Ron Shemesh said: “This is another major achievement for Smallbone in terms of high-end luxury residential developments in the history of its 45 years. Being part of an elegant 70-storey iconic condominium on the Upper West Side designed by world renowned architectural innovators Snøhetta.”

Smallbone says that no economies or restrictions were imposed by the developer on the quality of the kitchens and bathrooms it was asked to provide, and some new bespoke, proprietary finishes and designs were created exclusively for the 50 West 66th Street project.

In the Podium area of the building kitchens feature open-grain Rift Oak doors with drawer and appliance panels hand-painted in white to create a light, bright finish.

In the Tower area, other firsts from Smallbone include horizontal Crown Cut Oak laid by hand and coated in white bronze to create a modern, textured finish.

A Classic option is also offered with a hand-painted frontal finish paired with black onyx metallic trims, accents and surrounds.

For the master bathrooms, Smallbone has designed exclusive vanities, make-up areas and storage plus marble-clad powder room vanities and lacquer-finish secondary bathroom cabinetry.

The building is expected to top off in early January.

Smallbone has also recently completed a project at the Old War Office development in London.
