Imagine sitting at a coffee shop with your fave warm drink and you’re staring outside and suddenly someone taps on your shoulder. When you turn around, you see it’s your tc and they ask you with a warm smile if the other seat at your table is taken.
The Italian fashion house Fendi restored its Palace in Rome and opened there its first luxury hotel-Fendi Private Suites- and a roof restaurant. Downstairs, the 17th-century palazzo was completely refurbished by French architect Gwenael Nicolasseven and includes an atelier where clients can even watch the artisans at work. Designed by DimoreStudio, the second floor features the privee Fendi VIP Apartment, a luxurious private and exclusive space to welcome and host FENDI’s top clients. According to DimoreStudio aesthetics, its style turns out dramatically sophisticated, with a highly curated mix of vintage classics, contemporary design and art pieces: pastel sage and dove colored lacquered walls, baby green paint and dark blue silk fabric wall-coverings, the striking bookcase made from lacquered metal and colored cathedral glass, brass touches, the soaring ceilings and the molded boiserie set a refined yet warm and intimate mood. The 7 room hotel is hidden discreetly on the third floor of this brand’s flagship store Palace and was designed by Italian architect Marco Costanzi, who created a stylish but subtle ambience, using blood-red Lepanto marble and white travertine, custom-designed furnishings from Fendi Casa, Jan Kath carpets and Giò Ponti mirrors. Up above on the fourth floor Rainer Becker‘s upscale Japanese restaurant chain, Zuma, has opened its first Italian location.
