The trend of two luxury brands coming together to create something new has been there for some time now but we can see more examples in the recent years as the experiments generally prove to be a great success. St. Regis Hotel New York and the luxury car maker Bentley have collaborated to create a new luxury suite in the hotel. For St. Regis the initiative is not new as it has had fruitful relationships with Tiffany’s and Dior and have suites in their hotel that embody the essence of these luxury brands. The Bentley suite is the latest in the series and will not be the last as the hotel has planned two more similar partnerships with other exclusive brands.
Wimberley Interiors Have Done the Interior of the Suite
The Bentley suite has been designed for two adults or a family of four. It has been packed with features and at times looks more like the interior of a large luxury car. As you enter the suite there is an entryway foyer with leather stitched wall and an abstract table resembling Bentley’s logo. Wimberley Interiors was commissioned to do the interiors of the suite reflecting the exclusivity of the hotel and the car brand. The suite boasts of 14 feet high ceilings which allowed for lot of innovations in terms of interior design. Practically every item in the suite is exclusive. For example the TV stand is hand crafted from wood imported from UK. You never see another piece like that anywhere else.
A 2013 Bentley Mulsanne has Been Built for the Hotel
The unique and exquisite suite features one bedroom, an expansive dining room and a living room with ceiling to floor windows. The suite is spread over 1,700 square foot and located on the 15th floor of the hotel. The design of the suite reflects many of the defining characteristics of the luxury automobile brand. A bespoke 2013 Bentley Mulsanne has been created from ground up and customized exclusively for the hotel, with a bottle cooler and crystal champagne flutes, St. Regis crests on the headrests and personalized tread plates. The suite has been thrown open for the guests who will have to pay $9,500 plus applicable taxes.
