Soho Grand Springs New Surprises

The Soho Grand has never looked, well, grander, with the transformation of its 16th floor and the addition of activities tailored to the warming weather. In a partnership with Bowery Lane Bicycles, the hotel will feature vintage-inspired pieces this June, alongside a new take-away picnic by the property's newly appointed chef, Richard Farnabe.

Designed by Bill Sofield, 24 rooms have been renovated to create 10 suites on the 16th floor. Spanning up to 800 square feet, the suite's separate living and sleeping areas complement the bathrooms featuring the neighborhood's industrial materials with fabrics including velvet and silk.

Throughout the suites, colors ranging from chocolate, champagne and taupe accompany solid steel, marble and wood, furnished with velvet, silk and supply leathers. Vintage area rugs lay across ebonized ash plank wood flooring, while custom and vintage pieces, including cabinets, wire-glass mirror, and coffee table made of recycled newspapers, populate the rooms.

Other touches include tables inspired by renowned artist Jasper Johns and the cartoon city scene wallpaper of the master bath by New York illustrator Saul Steinberg.

New York-made through and through (welded, painted, assembled, packed and shipping in the Big Apple), Bowery Lane's family owned and operated company dates back to 1891.
