Jay Godfrey helps renovate URBN Shanghai

Cachet Hotel Group (CHG) announced the completion of renovations to Shanghai's eco-boutique hotel, URBN Hotel.

Under the creative direction of CHG's celebrity fashion designer, Jay Godfrey, the new interiors provide a modernist Zen experience for hotel guests. A neutral color palette was adopted throughout the hotel, which also highlights the natural beauty of the recycled and reclaimed wood materials. All the guestrooms were upgraded with new Mayair Technology air purification systems.

Re-designed guestrooms have URBN's signature Renewal Bed, made from 100 percent natural materials, including cactus fiber, seaweed and coconut fiber. The Renewal Bed has a four-layer bed system and 600-thread count Egyptian cotton sheet. Light fixtures with eco-friendly origins were adopted to provide sleek lines. Silks and velvets were also used in the hotel's draperies and upholstery.
