Few do glamour as well as the French ─ and pair that with the contemporary, urban style of New York City and you’ve got a recipe for something magnificent.
The Baccarat Hotel definitely falls under that description. Built in New York City by a team of French artisans, the hotel is a stunning endeavor by the crystal company of the same name that was founded by King Louis XV. The crystal company continues to share its mastery of the craft with the world over 250 years later, some of which can be found in the equally impressive hotel of the same name. It is a feast for the eyes that is nothing short of breathtaking.
The website for the hotel describes its unique design:
In white daylight, rainbows cascading, a spectrum of swatches cast from a trillion facets. By night, dimmed shimmer and champagne flutes. Gem-red spheres of fresh roses. This is Baccarat.
Here are some photos of the interior of the luxury hotel that are sure to inspire you.
