Design firm Wimberly Interiors unveiled the interior design of the Bentley Suite at The St. Regis New York. The signature suite represents a collaboration between Regis Hotels & Resorts and Bentley Motors.
Margaret McMahon, vice president and managing director of Wimberly Interiors, said that the design “celebrates the craftsmanship practiced at Bentley’s factory in Crewe, England.”
The suite is said to reflecting Bentley’s aesthetic and vision within the Beaux Arts architecture of the St. Regis New York. The suite features a slate of neutral colors including ivory, charcoal grey and black, punctuated with Bentley leather, highly polished wood and chrome details that evoke the interiors of a racing car.
The Bentley Suite is located on the 15th floor of the Manhattan landmark. Upon entering the 1,700 square foot suite through a set of double doors, guests are greeted by a blend of cream and neutral tones, set against the rich wood finishes of the handcrafted furnishings found throughout the space.
The suite’s black leather tile floor pairs with a linen colored, perforated diamond leather wall, stitched with one of the 42 custom Bentley leathers. A metallic silver mirror, inspired by a carbon fiber wheel rim, sits above an accent table evocative of the dashboard of a Bentley.
The dining room features a media wall including a large TV as well as four Breitling clocks marking the time in New York, London, Moscow and Riyadh. Black trim is set against cream walls with artwork that displays the heritage of the Bentley brand. A crystal chandelier adorns the ceiling; also featured is a leather rug on dark stained white oak floor.
In the living room, ivory walls are accented with black crown molding that line the ceiling, tufted leather sofa and wing chairs, and a crystal chandelier. Menswear inspired herringbone drapery runs from floor to ceiling. The bedroom features a custom sleigh bed with the classic Bentley burled wood, complemented by the color palette of aubergine, warm grays and ivory. The 'root burrow' wood throughout the room is said to be reminiscent of the signature Mulsanne model's exotic natural wood veneers.
