Ty Warner oversees $120M transformation of Four Seasons Hotel New York

All of the interiors remain true to the modern-deco style of I.M Pei, the architectural mastermind behind the building’s design.

The Four Seasons Hotel New York has completed the remodeling of its suites, junior suites and corridors, a project overseen by Ty Warner, who curated each and every design element for the $120-million renovation.

All of the newly-unveiled interiors remain true to the modern-deco style of I.M Pei, the architectural mastermind behind the building’s iconic design.

New elements include handmade king-sized lighted-pedestal beds with custom linens that appear to float above the ground. Handcrafted furnishings made from rare Japanese tamo ash, cerused oak and bespoke fabrics add to the monochromatic style. English Sycamore wood paneling as well as Lizard Gold and Chabata wallcoverings are also on display throughout the property. There are also custom-woven, 100 percent wool carpets and hand-knotted rugs.

Each of the newly designed 368 studio and suite accommodations have oversized windows that can actually be opened, a rarity in New York City and offer panoramic views of Manhattan and allowing in natural light. All accommodations have custom-designed ziggurat ceilings with variable lighting, and when the sun sets, lighting can be adjusted to suit the mood.

The bathrooms have Italian Breccia Oniciata marble, and include separate glass enclosed showers, deep-soaking tubs, many with Jacuzzis, remote-controlled mirrored televisions and Bvlgari amenities.

Accommodations also have oversized walk-in English Sycamore closets with a separate make-up area. There are also curved 65-inch and curved 55-inch HD televisions. Each space also has individually selected original artwork to enhance the feeling of a private residence.
