THE NEW YORKER A CASE STUDY
The design stayed true to the art deco themed building but with a bit of a modern twist. The use of subtle blues calmed the spaces giving it an elegant yet projessional look. S&T chose to use a custom 42 oz tapistron carpet construction for all of their corridors. The simplistic mid-scale pattern added to the ambiance and sophistication of the areas that carries guests to their well appointed guestrooms.
Big Bands played in the New Yorker Hotel's halls in the 30's and 40's when the hotel was one of the main hangout for the socialites.
The designers chose two color combinations for their guestrooms - a blue scheme and a brown scheme. Both are equally elegant and compliment the modern furnishings that were chosen. Art deco design was a major design influence in NYC's architecture and continues to thrive there through revitalized renovations like the New Yorker Hotel.
