These are the words that immediately spring to mind when we think of the design style of Waldorf Astoria Chicago:
1. Romantic. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s limestone façade, black iron detailing and old-fashioned motor court hearken back to another time and place.
2. Fashionable. The luxury Chicago hotel’s black, white and gray palette is more Elle Decor than hotel décor. Its details are also more fashion house than hotel. Coco Chanel’s jewels inspired the showpiece starburst chandelier in the lobby, while Christian Dior-like kick pleated drapes dress the windows.
3. Contemporary. We love how the classic elements are given a jolt with contemporary touches — a crimson velvet seat, a bold splash of green in the artwork.
4. Soft. Velvet sofas bring a soft and luxurious touch in the lobby and guests rooms. They also bring in texture to balance pieces like white leather chairs.
