We raise the bar for luxury boutique hotels in NYC
Gramercy Park Hotel's Haute Bohemian heritage represents a sensuous vision of artful diversity. Bohemia reinvented for the 21st century with an original combination of styles, with great pieces of furniture and artwork and the extraordinary use of color.
Guests will find exhibited 20th century masterpieces by artists Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Richard Prince, Keith Haring, and of course, Julian Schnabel. The exhibited works will change periodically and guest curators will be invited to exhibit art of the same caliber and excellence.
what inspires you?
We can't help but be inspired by the art, vivid and operatic feast of visual tension — an enlivening mélange of the "new" High Bohemia. Seemingly haphazard combinations of surreal contemporary pieces and centuries-old furnishings create an alternative universe in this 5 star NYC hotel that's like stepping into a 3-D painting — a classical vocabulary transformed into an edgy new language.
Epic canvases dance around richly-textured rooms of rough plaster, Moroccan tiles, hand-woven rugs, and reclaimed lumber. Hand-carved 10' Italian fireplaces and lush red velvet curtains frame otherworldly objects designed by Julian Schnabel. A custom Venetian glass chandelier hangs above surreal lanterns. It is a study in careful contradictions — jazzy but purposeful — an emotional and synergistic balancing act. A style that always dances up to the edge of being too much without ever going over.
