Located in downtown Tribeca, the new opening features bright and bold interiors envisioned by Kit Kemp Design Studio. With its striking blue exterior and bright yellow top, Warren Street Hotel is a celebration of contemporary design by Firmdale founder and Creative Director Kit Kemp, and her daughters Minnie and Willow. Taking inspiration from the area’s history as the city’s 19th century textiles hub, the new Firmdale Hotels opening is filled with Kemp’s own designed and found fabrics, including her latest collaborations with Christopher Farr Cloth, GP&J Baker and Spode.
The 69 guestrooms, suites and residences feature intricately-embellished headboards, upholstered furniture and whimsical bespoke lighting. Several suites include landscaped terraces and gardens with wooden trellising, as well as ferns, cedars and pollinating plants.
Eclectic artworks are spread across the property, many exclusive to the hotel, including pieces by sculptors Tony Cragg and Wendell Castle. Kemp’s own range of ‘Tall Trees’ fine bone china tableware is used in the restaurant, while its pattern also adorns bathroom amenities.
The hotel is home to Warren Street Bar & Restaurant, a modern 150-cover brasserie serving a menu of classic dishes infused with global influences. Large artworks line the walls and lead to the Orangery, which features illuminated handmade ceramic pots.
