The hotel decor is heavily inspired by the Mid-Century modern movement, with all kinds of cool artwork on the walls and furniture from Eames and Mies van der Rohe through out the lobby. I am a huge fan of architecture and furniture from the era, so it was definitely a delight to see. I wish I would have taken more pictures but Marc hates when I act like a tourist.
Mural in hotel lobby:
More art in the lobby:
This piece was so cool. It looked like there was someone or something trapped inside trying to get out.
I wonder if these were authorized reproductions or fakes? The Eames chairs retail $3000 each and the Platner Side Table retails for $665. Pricey stuff for a high traffic hotel lobby. A real Eames Lounge from DWR is very high on my list of things that I must have in my next house. Same for the Platner Side Table. I just love it.
Space Ship Trash Can:
I have no idea if these trash cans have any special architectural or design significance. I just thought it was the cutest thing! They were through out the hotel lobby and public spaces.
More pictures from the mini getaway coming soon.
