2013-02-18 21:54:52 - The high-end Riche Bobois furniture helps to showcase the spaces and how they function. The brand appeals to the sophisticated tastes of many One Thousand Ocean buyers, and the building’s developer has found that having this luxurious furniture in select residences is instrumental in making residential sales, whether buyers choose to purchase the furniture or not. If they do buy the furnishings, it is a great turnkey opportunity for them.
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Continuing its successful collaboration with Roche Bobois, One Thousand Ocean is offering an optional furniture package from the international home furnishings firm for its last available two-story Beach Villa. Roche Bobois furnished the unique residence, enabling prospective purchasers to better envision themselves living there.
Two other residences in the 52-unit ultra-luxe condominium building sold soon after Roche Bobois installed other of its fine European furniture, resulting in buyers making a quick transition as One Thousand Ocean residents.
Along with the final two-story Beach Villa, a single-story residence also affords buyers the option to purchase all or some of the Roche Bobois selections within them.
Jamie Telchin, president of development for LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels, said, “The high-end
furniture helps to showcase the spaces and how they function. The brand appeals to the sophisticated tastes of many of our buyers, and we have found that having this luxurious furniture in select residences is instrumental in making residential sales, whether buyers choose to purchase the furniture or not. If they do buy the furnishings, it is a great turnkey opportunity for them.”
“The residences at One Thousand Ocean are very large and dynamic, so seeing them empty could be overwhelming for some buyers who find it difficult to visualize how they can live in their new home,” added Julien Bigan, Roche Bobois’ South East U.S. general manager. “Our selections offer a richness and contemporary elegance very much in keeping with the carefree lifestyle of One Thousand Ocean residents.”
Commenting further, Bigan noted, “The uniqueness of Beach Villa 101 and its varied volumes were the inspiration for our designer Patrick Cabaroc’s selections. Patrick mixed some very comfortable and luxurious pieces together with some spectacular ones. The blending of our two collections, Les Nouveaux Classiques and Les Contemporains, is a cocktail that seems to work well and please more and more of our clientele. Likewise, colors were used to contrast neutral tones on the main pieces of furniture, which explains why the more splashy tones are on accessories, lamps, rugs and artwork.”
Because the open kitchen area overlooks the coast on the south of the building, Cabaroc decided to make the adjacent space the priority for dining, instead of placing the dining table in the entrance area of the residence, where it would have blocked the view to the living room and waterway beyond.
“With 240 worldwide Roche Bobois locations, many One Thousand Ocean residents and prospects are familiar with the brand. Furthermore,” Bigan noted, “this is now the fourth unit we’ve furnished at One Thousand Ocean, indicating that we both chose the right partner from the start.”
For over 50 years, Roche Bobois has crafted home furnishings in Europe with exceptional originality and skill. Each piece, customizable to suit any taste or mood, has a character that is truly unique and exclusive, resulting from a group effort between designers, manufacturers and Roche Bobois. Roche Bobois furniture is available in multiple compositions (e.g., materials, colors, finishes, sizes, shapes). The company’s talented team includes designers, artists and architects who blend pleasure with practicality and pair creativity with functionality as they bring visions to life.
An LXR affiliate developed the iconic, nautilus-shaped, One Thousand Ocean landmark which is located on the tip of a private peninsula at the Boca Raton Inlet, adjacent to the Boca Raton Resort’s Boca Beach Club. It is surrounded by water on three sides: inlet, ocean and Lake Boca Raton/Intracoastal Waterway.
A total of six residences remain, include three residences ready for immediate occupancy, and three unfinished, customizable penthouses. Prices are from approximately $3 million to $15 million. Residents who elect private membership at the neighboring Boca Raton Resort & Club enjoy access to the numerous amenities and services of a world-class vacation destination.
