does the ceiling also serve as the floor above, if so where do the wires to the lights run ?

these beams serve the roof above, we ran conduit on the roof ( under the roofing membrane) and then penetrated into the space for the lighting boxes. On the floor below this, we ran the conduit in the mud job along side the radiant tubing.

The sectional is from Suite NY, its called the LINK sofa. The swivels are Poltrona Frau, and you should get those through Poltrona directly. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Narofsky kept the living room ceilings open to give the impression of greater height. Steel beams are capped with reclaimed wood from New York City brownstones. "The rich quality of the wood adds a lot to the space and refers back to the Pacific Northwest look," Narofsky says. The fireplace wall has two cold-rolled steel boxes that intersect a panel of Sentousai stone tile by Inax. But in a bit of a trompe l'oeil effect, things are not necessarily what they seem: The left portion is a gas fireplace, while the right box conceals media equipment. The floors are waxed concrete.The interior design throughout the home is by Naroksky's wife, Jennifer Rusch, and her assistant, Katrina Hermann, of ways2design. Kenneddee club swivel chairs from Poltrona Frau anchor the far end of the room. They flank Caste Design's Powell occasional table and a sliding-glass door that opens onto a Juliet balcony. Sofa: Link, Suite New York; cocktail table: LNA, Holly Hunt; rug: Lepere; console: Frank, B&B Italia; painting: Frank Arnold
Narofsky brought in reclaimed wood from New York City brownstones for the ceiling. Its beauty and texture allowed him to leave the ceiling open to the beams, adding height.
Architect Stuart Narofsky really enjoys incorporating salvaged lumber into his designs. His use of these reclaimed materials adds warmth to many of his modern designs. And Narofsky likes these materials left exposed, saving on the expense of paint and drywall.
