A Jewel of a Dining Room

Million Dollar Contractor, Stephen Fanuka was brought in to restore this apartment to its prewar glory, and the crown jewel was to be an oak-paneled dining room. The Fanuka team selected individual quarter-sawn oak panels for the highly-figured grain pattern she desired. They also had custom solid wood moldings cut to replicate prewar details and even wood species. Even the staining of the wood was laborious, but in the end well worth it for the room is warm and honey-toned. Finally added was a vintage fireplace from an architectural salvage company.

Custom Glass Shower Tiles

In this studio apartment, designer Stephen Fanuka's job was to turn the studio apartment into a beautiful master suite, and combine two spaces into one stunning apartment. This required demolishing part of the apartment, the library, to create a doorway into the new suite, but Fanuka's team replicated the old space's details in a smaller space. The master suite is truly luxurious with a master bath, shown here on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, featuring hand-painted wallpaper and a custom shower stall with Carrara marble tile.

Rooftop Solarium and Bar

As featured on DIY's Network's Million Dollar Contractor, host Stephen Fanuka created a solarium and a new bar that runs the length of the room, integrating a sink and beverage refrigerator. He also installed motorized shades, lighting, and carpet, making the space much more livable year-round. The renovation involved the application of quarter-inch slate tiles to the stairway wall. This has the effect of uniting the upstairs and downstairs, and gives the appearance of solid stone when in fact it's only as thick as two quarters.

Impressive Foyer

As seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, this entry foyer is spectacular. A wintery theme art along the walls is one more reason why Stephen said this was the nicest home he's ever built.

A Corner Office

A Livable Living Room

An engaging living space with a big screen TV and couch, a timeless fireplace mantle and table for games, it's perfect for family and friend fun on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor. Stephen Fanuka had a unique challenge in building the custom cabinet under the stairs in the living room. The goal was to maximize the use of space in the apartment, and not an inch is wasted. The cabinet is crafted from walnut, and integrates a wine rack, a desk and workspace, bookshelves, and hidden storage areas. The living room fireplace was also replaced, and fitted with a custom stone mantle.
