Sean MacPherson creates penthouse suite for The Ludlow Hotel

The Ludlow Hotel in New York opened a 1,500-square-foot penthouse suite. Located on the 17th floor of the property, the suite was created by designer and hotelier Sean MacPherson. The penthouse suite has furniture and artwork selected by MacPherson, the hotelier whose other projects include The Bowery, The Jane and The Maritime hotels.

The property’s new 17th floor penthouse has various eclectic pieces, including handmade Moroccan chandeliers, bronzed stools in the shape of one’s backside created by Novello Finotti and an entertainment center with a record player and vintage vinyl records.

The space also houses a full kitchen, a dining table with seating for six guests, a living room, a skybox sitting area, two full bathrooms with rain showers (one of the bathrooms also has a window soaking tub), a separate bedroom with a king-sized bed and a 1,000-square-foot furnished outdoor terrace.
