Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York today announced the completion of its model residence, offering the first glimpse inside the striking 50-story Skidmore Owings & Merrilldesigned glass tower. Conceptualized by Stephen Sills, one of the design industry’s most celebrated talents, the residence combines modern French design with a contemporary New York aesthetic. Every aspect of the home is meticulously finished with jewel-like details, in an appropriate nod to the brilliance, beauty and legacy inherent in the Baccarat brand.
The residential tower, now over 60% sold, will be available for occupancy in August 2014. The landmark tower is a joint venture between Starwood Capital Group and Tribeca Associates and features 60 private residences atop a 114-room luxury hotel, the global flagship for Baccarat Hotels. World-renowned interior designer Tony Ingrao conceptualized the tower’s private residential lobby as well as the interior layouts and finishes of the 60 residences, while Paris-based Gilles et Boissier designed the interiors of the hotel.
The residence, located on the 36th floor, boasts 2,525 square feet of living space including three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Central Park. Sills masterfully combines neutral tones that change with the light, creating a warm and sophisticated ambiance. The living room features subtle architectural molding details that are wrapped upholstered in shimmering gold silk. The serene bedrooms appear to float in the sky and are complete with contemporary furniture accentuated by Baccarat crystal lighting.
“I am deeply honored to partner with this legendary brand to design the luxurious interiors of the model residence,” said Stephen Sills. “The unparalleled quality, grandeur and beauty of Baccarat was my inspiration for this remarkable space.”
