“The front desk features white sparkle, stacked-ledge stone. The distressed-porcelain floor tiles provide a vintage-factory wood aesthetic, which coordinates with a classic herringbone pattern inset. From the retail area, you catch a glimpse of our hospitality lounge, which invites guests to indulge in little nibbles while sipping fine wine, champagne or cocktails while relaxing on a peacock-colored sofa under our starbust chandelier.”
