As the Baccarat brand celebrates its 250th anniversary this year, devotees of the French crystal company will have the opportunity to experience the brand’s exceptional lifestyle on a grander scale with the opening of Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York in late 2014.
Located on 53rd Street just off Fifth Avenue, directly across from the Museum of Modern Art, Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York combines sophisticated design with the highest level of service and exceptional quality that exemplifies the glamour, prestige and history of the brand. The residential tower, a joint venture between Starwood Capital Group and Tribeca Associates, is now over 60% sold and will be available for occupancy in August 2014.
Clad in crystal-inspired patterns of metal and glass, the Skidmore Owings & Merrill designed 50-story tower includes 114 large guest rooms designed by Gilles et Boissier and 60 private residences conceptualized by Tony Ingrao, ranging from one-to four-bedrooms, including four full-floor homes and one five-bedroom penthouse duplex with an outdoor terrace.
A long-time admirer of the Baccarat brand, Tony Ingrao brings a remarkable understanding of architecture and an innate sense of elegance and luxury to the residences, which feature refined finishes that combine natural elements with modern concepts including custom bronze-work crackled with crystal, contemporary furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the natural light outside and reflect a glistening brilliance throughout each space. Every residence will also feature a custom crystal chandelier in the foyer, reinforcing Baccarat’s reputation for creating exquisite pieces of art.

This spring, the model residence was unveiled, outfitted by celebrated interior designer Stephen Sills, providing the first glimpse inside the highly anticipated tower. Illuminating from the 36th floor, the residence boasts 2,525 square feet of living space including three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows featuring awe-inspiring views. Sills masterfully combines neutral tones that change with the light, creating a warm and sophisticated ambiance. The living room features subtle architectural molding details that are wrapped in shimmering gold silk. Theserene bedrooms appear to float in the sky and are complete with contemporary furniture accentuated by Baccarat crystal lighting.
