It’s a stunning show of iconic modern furniture design in this luxury Gold Coast apartment

The pinnacle of a luxurious new Gold Coast address, this seaside penthouse apartment is a sanctuary of comfort and design-driven style, thanks to a curated interior design showcasing the very best of DOMO furnishings.

A serene eyrie, high above the waves, beachgoers, and general buzz of Broadbeach, this three-bedroom penthouse pulls focus for its ocean views and seconds-from-the-sand perch. But it’s what’s inside that counts when it comes to this story.

The jewel in the crown of Beach House by Andrews Projects, a new apartment building whose sculpted form has become an instant landmark, the north-facing retreat is bathed in natural light and finished to the highest spec. To complete the picture, interior design studio The Drawing Mill was tasked with creating an elevated styling scheme — working in partnership with DOMO on a premium selection of furnishings, feature lighting, and rugs.

The end game? An exclusive launch event, staged as an intimate dinner party, with an enigmatic invite teasing guests with the promise of ‘ocean views and oysters’.

“It was important for the staging to reflect the calibre of the building and have the high-end purchaser in mind,” notes Carly Morgan, interior designer at The Drawing Mill. “The brief involved luxurious finishes, sculptural forms, and connection to the coastal landscape. DOMO curated a collection of pieces across the entire home, pulling from various exclusive collections to complement each space.”

Ready inspiration came from the beach vistas and the existing architecture and interior design by Bureau Proberts — an exquisite backdrop of textural limestone, washed-back timbers, and fluid lines. The DOMO team set about complementing this elegantly organic scene, drawing on iconic names including Swiss brand de Sede and French favourite Ligne Roset for the bedrooms, living and dining areas, study, media room, and expansive terrace.

The project channels a boutique beach hotel: this luxe iteration balancing extreme comfort with sophisticated design-led style. Sumptuous textures bring cosiness to the generously proportioned rooms while the palette of warm neutrals and flashes of black, nickel, green and brass delivers a cohesive feel. No harsh edges here, just plenty of places to curl up and enjoy the view.

In the dining room, de Sede chairs in whisky leather bring an airy charm to the table with their cantilevered design, while an iconic sofa blooms like soft coral in the living zone. “The de Sede DS-600 sofa, exclusive to DOMO, is a strong presence,” says Carly. “Distinctive segments are curved to create two sides of seating, and the considered layout encourages interaction between zones, adding volume to the interior.”

Lotus planters from KUN Design draw you outside to bask in sunshine and ocean breezes — mix a martini at the sleek bar zone, and you’re there.

Throughout the apartment, slices of sunlight add another dimension, illuminating diaphanous window dressings and framing the first bedroom’s Ligne Roset Ruche Bed adorned in Harald Jade Velvet. In the second bedroom, art selections also come to the fore with a bold Natasha Wright piece, Smokey Eyes. Carly looked to Australian galleries including M Contemporary, Anita Traverso Gallery and Sabu Studio for their selections, adding depth to every room.

As you might expect, the main bedroom suite is a private haven complete with a tranquil ensuite. The Ligne Roset Desdémone bed in velvety Harald 3 ‘Noisette’ fabric was chosen for its cocooning embrace while HC28 Cosmo’s Layer side table brings through luxe accents of marble and brass.

No detail has been overlooked here, right through to the covetable selection of floor lamps throughout the apartment: all art pieces in their own right. And the teams worked down to the wire to ensure their launch event was as exceptional as those ocean views. “There are always spatial constraints when creating furniture and styling packages for apartments, particularly with lift access and delivery challenges,” admits Carly. “We worked closely with DOMO and our delivery partners to ensure the project was ready in time — complete with a little nail-bite moment when a swapped-out rug arrived on the day.”

The project was always intended to find this Broadbeach beauty her family. And it clearly struck a chord: the penthouse was snapped up for a cool $6 million! “We wanted to elevate the already stunning space and give agents and clients the complete experience of living in this exclusive address,” says Carly. “The DOMO package resonated so much with the new owners that they went on to purchase many of the items.”

Our only question: why wouldn’t you?
