A study inspired by the show “Californication,” featuring a mirrored floor and ceiling, along with a couple of the main character’s favorite vices.
While the average writer likely wouldn’t have a mirrored floor — and ceiling — in his study, and your typical cancer patient would never keep a bowl of onions in her bedroom, these touches could mean the ideal abode for some of TV’s favorite characters. And if they existed outside of a TV program, they might feel at home at Cassa NY, which has teamed up with Showtime in the channel’s third Showtime House exhibition. The Real Deal got a sneak peak at some of the newly designed rooms today (see the slide show above).
The exhibition has brought in 14 different teams to design rooms inspired by seven of the channel’s shows: “Californication,” “The Big C,” “Dexter,” “Nurse Jackie,” “United States of Tara,” “Weeds” and “The Borgias.” The installation, which was held at the Tribeca Summit condominium last year, will be open to the public on weekends between Sept. 11 and Oct. 23 at the hotel and condominium development at 70 West 45th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues.
