Lenny Kravitz’s Design Firm Unveils 75 Kenmare, A Curated Collection of 38 Stunning Homes

You probably know Lenny Kravitz as the father of the beautiful Zoë Kravitz, or as the rebel rocker behind songs like “American Women,” but did you know that he’s also behind a design firm called Kravitz Design?

Growing up in New York with creatives who have impeccable taste exposed Kravitz to some of the most eye-catching homes around, so now he’s taking the knowledge and expertise he garnered and applying that to interior design. Kravitz Design is responsible for luxury suites in hotels in Las Vegas and Miami, as well as a rock-and-roll-inspired collection for CB2.

“Home should be a place where you feel like yourself and where your spirit is comfortable,” said Lenny Kravitz, and now the multi-hyphenate created a place that you can call home. Kravitz Design, along with architect André Kikoski and real estate developer DHA Capital, are the mavens behind 75 Kenmare, “a highly curated collection of 38 homes” located in New York’s Nolita neighborhood. The residential building just announced sales. Seventy-five Kenmare comes equipped with everything one needs. Upon entering guests are greeted by a 24-hour concierge, who stands behind a Portuguese Slate reception desk in an area surrounded by the finest materials — millwork wood, a smoked-glass wall, and custom-cut quartzite, granite and marble floors.

Once inside, elevators with a landing made of quartzite and titanium travertine, and bronze doors with oak paneling await to take you to your place. The residences come with sweeping views of the city and White Oak flooring, custom matte white lacquer cabinetry, marble countertops and integrated Gaggenau appliances. The master bedrooms offer a sense of tranquility so that you can get a restful night’s sleep. While 75 Kenmare comes with a gym and an entertaining area in the building, one of its most covetable features is its parking; cars are stored hidden away until a state-of-the-art system brings them to you to take you on your next journey.

Will there be a season 2 of Shōgun?
Want to know if Shōgun will last more than one season?
Hiroyuki Sanada in Shogun

There aren't many shows that debut with a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, but FX's adaptation of James Clavell's Shōgun is something special. This is the second time that Shōgun has been adapted for television, and it was also a breakout hit in 1980 when it was hailed as one of the greatest miniseries ever created for TV. It took another 44 years before FX's modern take followed, but this version of Shōgun is already among the contenders for the best TV series of 2024.

Cosmo Jarvis stars in Shōgun as John Blackthrone, an English sailor who is trapped in Japan at the beginning of the 17th century. This was during a time when Japan wasn't particularly welcoming of outsiders. And once Blackthrone proved that he had value, he wasn't allowed to leave. Thus, the show chronicles Blackthrone's transformation as he acclimates to Japan and its people in a time of deadly turmoil.
