A wealthy Icelandic couple is being sued for installing a cheap Ikea kitchen in their Gramercy Park Hotel pad. According to the Daily News, Jon Asgeir Johannesson and Ingibjorg Palmadottir own two apartments in the building, a full-floor co-op and the duplex penthouse above it. The duo rented out the 16th floor to the Paramount Realty Group last year, and now that group is suing them for $52,000, in part because of the "ugly kitchen."
The suit claims that the kitchen "was not reasonably satisfactory... as it did not rise to the level of a kitchen suitable for a property located at 50 Gramercy Park North. The kitchen has also been a source of embarrassment for Plaintiff and the subject of remarks by guests." Rich people!
On top of the design faux pas, the suit also claims the unit had faulty air conditioning, a cracked window and missing appliances... as well as chewed up chicken wings on the 2,000-square-foot terrace! Allegedly they were being tossed there by the couple themselves, who reside above.
