Meet The Coveted and Luxurious Baccarat Hotel & Residences New YorkThursday 10 August 2017
Meet The Coveted and Luxurious Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York – Directly across the street from the Museum of Modern Art and steps away from Fifth Avenue’s legendary shopping, Baccarat Hotel & Residences is the first hotel and global flagship for the more than 250-year-old Baccarat crystal brand. Today Covetedition invites you to get inside this amazing hotel and be amazed by its luxury interior design.
Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York features 114 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites and glamorous second-story lobby salons and bar. The Bar at Baccarat, just off the opulent Grand Salon, is an epic space featuring barrel-vaulted ceilings, a bar and an outdoor terrace overlooking the MoMA. It also features an indoor pool, an elite fitness training facility and the first Spa de la Mer in the United States.
Paris-based interior design firm Gilles & Boissier led the creation of the hotel’s interiors, which combine Baccarat’s French classic aesthetics with a fanciful modern sensibility. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill served as architects for the 50-story tower, while the residential design was led by New York-based interior designer and distinguished in the Architectural Digest 100, Tony Ingrao. The tower’s sixty private residences are accessible through a separate entrance and have access to all the hotel’s amenities.
The hotel’s interiors were conceived to combine the classic elegance of a luxury Parisian hotel particulier with the contemporary aesthetic of its midtown New York City location. Gilles & Boissier, alongside Starwood Capital’s own design team, designed many of the hotel’s furnishings including commissioning several unique works from the Baccarat factories. Classic pieces were also curated from the brands’ archival and contemporary collections for the public spaces and rooms. Room categories start with the generous Classic King and ascend to the Baccarat Presidential Suite.
The hotel’s bar, inspired by the stables of Versailles, serves handcrafted cocktails, aperitifs, fine wines and a light bites menu. Guests can also enjoy gathering on the adjacent seasonal terrace overlooking MoMA.
Located at street level, the signature contemporary French private dining room Chevalier takes its name from Baccarat’s long time and most beloved creative director, Georges Chevalier, who was responsible for ushering the crystal company into the modern age. Designed by legendary New York interior designer Stephen Sills, Chevalier is designed to be both inspiring and inviting. The colour palette draws from naturally occurring minerals like amber and mica; the materials used throughout Chevalier are light and luminous with a mix of matte and reflective services. Wooden floors add to the casual yet chic feel.
Baccarat has partnered with the ultra-prestigious skin care brand La Mer to create the intimate Spa de La Mer, its first spa in the Unites States. Designed to recall a luxurious European seaside retreat, the four treatment rooms beckon guests and locals who crave revitalising treatments and soothing respites.
Address: 28 W 53rd St, New York, NY 10019, USA
