Let’s Plan a Trip to One of These Sight Unseen–Approved Design Hotels
Though summer is typically the season of travel, maybe you’re like me and haven’t gone further than a few miles from home since spring. If that’s the case, and you’re experiencing a very serious bout of wanderlust, here are three design hotels that have caught our eye lately for their very Sight Unseen–like qualities. The Marram Montauk, a cedar-clad building overlooking the Atlantic designed by Studio Tack, has rooms featuring fiber-strung pendant lights, Noguchi light sculptures, naturally dyed jute rugs, and paintings on vintage canvases by Sean W. Spellman. The Hotel Kinsley in Kingston, New York, spread out over four historic buildings dating back to the 17th century, was designed by SU fave Robert McKinley and employs — among other wonderful things — that brocade fabric we’ve been stalking since Stockholm (WHO MAKES IT?? DM us on Instagram if you know!) And the Il Palazzo Experimental in Venice was designed by MVP Dorothee Meilichzon with an assist by Cristina Celestino in the cocktail bar — they had us at arched doorways and cone-topped finials in a renaissance-era palace. Scroll through for some serious travel inspo.
