Celebrity designer Nate Berkus is known for his ability to transform rooms into cozy and comfortable dwellings. That’s why Loews Regency Hotel Suite asked him to design a room in their Manhattan location on Park Avenue as part of a $100 million renovation. Berkus turned a 1,000-square-foot suite into a room with a view – inside!
“The challenge in designing any hotel suite is for it to not feel generic or staid,” Berkus told In Style magazine. “The goal is always to create a space that feels fresh and new and unexpected, like you’re stepping into someone’s home, where every detail—from the art, to the accessories on the hall table—is thought out and deliberate.”
The space is chic and sophisticated, and while it might be more sleek than cozy, it’s got a New York vibe that’s full of energy. If you love Berkus’s room, we’ve got the look:
Start with a sophisticated sofa that makes a style statement. Berkus chose a rolled arm, tufted sofa in brilliant green upholstery. He told In Style that green is a great neutral, and it choosing this bolder color creates a great effect. “It feels important and works so well when you layer in metallics, brass, woven materials, and all those kinds of things,” he said.
Our Riviera Sofa from Thread & Feather has similar lines and is available in custom order, so you can duplicate the shade.
Next, choose an assortment of chairs to create a conversation area. An oversized upholstered chair in grey beckons you to sink in and relax. Our Coral II Chair is a match, and features an English arm style with turned legs that mimic the legs on the sofa.
Two sleek chairs on the opposite wall introduce a contemporary feel. The black seat and chrome base feels edgy and modern. Our Tully Chair is a good choice. It’s upholstered in top grain 100% genuine black “vintage” leather in a distressed look.
An oversized cocktail table anchors the seating area in a trendy concrete grey color. While not a perfect match, our Portland Cocktail Table features the same clean lines and weathered patina for a cool, urban feel.
On either side of the sofa are matching end tables that are made of wood and metal, helping bridge the contemporary and traditional elements of the room. A pair of our Huntington End Table is a great choice, bringing a transitional feel with its mahogany veneer table top and sleek metal base.
Finally, two bold contemporary lamps bring light and symmetry to the sofa wall. Our Simone Table Lamps are a great choice. In brown faux crocodile base with a taupe shade, their chrome accents mirror the base of the chairs and bring more light into the room.
