The Baccarat Hotel, New York City


 

The Baccarat Hotel & Residences is the first hotel of the Baccarat Group, opened in 2015 and located in front of the MoMa (Modern Art Museum) in New York, USA.

 

The impressive façade, featuring a 38-meter high crystal curtain and three jet-black chiseled aluminum canopied entrances, highlights the heritage of Baccarat brand while blending in the urban and modern neighborhood. Works of art, including several on the theme of Baccarat’s signature Harcourt glass, will be on display throughout the hotel.

Designed by the Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier, the public spaces, Spa and 114 Guestrooms & Suites are executed in a striking yet elegant style, reminiscent of the refinement and intimacy of early 1900’s French grand town houses.

Decca teamed up with the French designers to develop and manufacture most case good furniture in these areas to the high standard of the Baccarat Group, subtly mixing solid woods, rich veneers, metalwork, leather, marble and glass. 

Baccarat Hotel was “designed like a Parisian hôtel particulier [private mansion] but also as an intimate and warm 21st-century home. The French touch will be felt throughout, as much in the play on forms as in the way the decor unfolds.” - Patrick Gilles

The bed frames are made of smoked Oak solid wood and veneer, and feature hand carved pineal decorations at the top of each post. The leather upholstered headboards also integrate reading lights and LED lightbox at the back to subtly illuminate the room.
