The Beekman Hotel
A New (York City) Icon
The recent soft opening of The Beekman Hotel in New York marks a new milestone for the team at Projects by Resource Decor, who worked alongside prestigious design firm, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, McLaren Furniture Ltd and procurement house The Cardy Group, on the ambitious Thompson Hotels development.
Described as one of New York City’s most exceptional landmarks, and celebrated for its epic nine-story atrium and pyramidal skylight, The Beekman Hotel is located in a once-abandoned site in lower Manhattan, surrounded by some of the city’s most beloved and iconic attractions.
For over 12 months, our team worked with Martin Brudnizki on developing products, crafting unique finishes and sourcing exceptional materials for the landmark 287 room hotel. The result is over 4,000 exceptional vintage and bespoke pieces; an incredible array of styles and finishes which reflect the rich architectural history of the building.
While much of the furniture stays true to the building’s Victorian heritage, other pieces represent a fusion of different periods, deliberately mismatched: a 20’s lamp sits alongside a mid-century bedside table, which sits next to a contemporary desk. Waxed, antiqued burr walnut, hand hewn oak, industrial iron and opulent marble are just a few of the magical mix of materials that were used to bring Brudnizki’s vision to life.
In total, more than 67 styles of bespoke hotel furniture were produced for the project, the scope of which not only included rooms and suites, but all public areas, including the lobby and bar, and two restaurants helmed by celebrated chefs Tom Colicchio and Keith McNally respectively.
