The Sundown Lounge

A retreat by day, a mecca by night, the Sundown Lounge smolders with a timeless mystique, easeful but edgy.

Sensate, nocturnal, mysterious, the Sundown Lounge vests in unbridled escape—villa-stile via Ponti in San Francisco. Its contours treat the eye but are tendered for the body with poetic precision.

Under the gaze of a Noam Rappaport acrylic work, a vintage c. 1940s Palle Suenson cabinet plays host.

Vividly hewn vintage and contemporary works—a Jorge Zalszupin Brazilian mid-century credenza, a tambour-doored Palle Suenson cabinet, a curvaceous custom Chroma settee, and Analog Manufaktur’s bleeding-edge audiophile tech—parley modern design minds with emergent visionaries. Moody teal, sanguine red, patinated bronze, and blue velvet trip a tantalizing experience—a breathy whisper, a wink—as prone to zoning out as tuning in.
