Midtown Manhattan vibes for New York suite

New York-based Stonehill Taylor has designed The Conrad New York Midtown, which was to fashion a 562-suite luxury hotel in the heart of New York city.

The Conrad, New York Midtown features a collection of premium accommodations such as four Apartment suites, six Sky suites, an Atrium suite and one Penthouse suite. The Guest suites evoke the luxury of a private pied-aterre, consisting of separate living and sleeping zones. Herringbone wood floors, hand-tufted wool rugs and floor-to-ceiling cream colored drapery make up the design against a neutral grey and caramel palette. Luxurious materials such as leather dining chairs, a sleek coffee table with sculptured brass legs and a soft woven sofa, add dimension to the space.

A small dining area at the projecting bay window looks out to Midtown Manhattan, and is set with blackwood double doors leading to the bedroom. The beds are backed with a panel with moldings, giving a classic interior luxe setting, in a neutral white and cream palette with jewel accents.

The Sky suites are modern and sleek as they complement the nearby Ivy League clubs with a scholarly resident in mind. An open-concept suite, there is a study, dining area, and living room along with a full-size bathroom, powder room, wet bar and king-size bedroom. Natural earthy tones decorate the suite, with cognac-hued herringbone floors, porcelain countertops, stone accents and brass finishes.

The Atrium suite is inspired by nearby Central Park, where the living house is housed within a greenhouse-like space with glass surroundings looking over Manhattan. A Serge Mouille pendant hangs above a block-marble coffee table surrounded by eclectic seating. The dining room has a marble-topped tulip table with a bespoke chandelier above. Pale pink, dark green, blue, and greytoned furniture symbolize the change of the seasons in Central Park set off with light oak wood. The bedroom has a floral upholstered headboard with integrated
brass shelving.

A split-level Penthouse Suite is situated on the 53rd and 54th floors, houses the living space at the lower level, with seating by Lewis Mittman and Quality and Co, case goods by The New Traditionalists, rugs by Loloey, an original Eames chair and a ceiling-height brass shelving unit. Artwork by Joan Miro, Alexander Calder and Francoise Gilot add to the visual beauty of the space.

A central staircase leads to dark walls with brass-framed artwork, and a mobile-inspired chandelier of blown frosted glass orbs on delicate brass arms by Preciosa. On the second floor, seven-foot-high windows provide views of downtown Manhattan from the bedroom. Linen wall coverings and a ceiling-height dimensional headboard bookended by brass and hand blown glass sconces comprise the design palette.
