Inside all of the guest rooms, suites and penthouses are original black and white photographs provided by the Howard Greenberg Gallery, shot by famed New York photographers from the 1940s and 1950s. These iconic images illuminate the motif of old New York and artistic legacy of SoHo.
In the guest rooms, an appreciation for artistry is visible in the selection of custom and vintage pieces and in the workmanship of the cabinets, desks and wire glass mirrors. Sofield brought in sculpture tables to sit bedside and corseted leather Eileen Gray desk chairs to sit up along copper penny tables and wire-glass desks. In the bathrooms, towel racks are inspired by Paris metro station rails, and the playful wall coverings are by famed New Yorker illustrator Saul Steinberg. In the suites, inventive coffee tables are made of recycled newspapers and the dining tables are inspired by artist Jasper Johns’s renowned “target” paintings.
Club Room’s permanent photograph collection comes courtesy of SoHo’s Morrison Hotel Gallery and features images from famed photographer, Terry O’Neill. Recognized for his candid documentation of the celebrities and fashion styles of the 1960s, O’Neill’s oversized images in Club Room are mounted directly on bronze metal.
