In honor of their fifth anniversary, The James Hotel Chicago decided to enlist the help of BassamFellows to give the interior a brand new look. This brilliant renovation sharpened the focus on art and culture, embodying the spirit of nearby attractions like The Museum of Contemporary Art.
This boutique hotel features elegant, minimalist rooms decked out in custom and recycled furniture. The hallways and common areas, on the other hand, go far beyond the expected modern design.
The lobby is a particularly exciting part of The James Hotel, a memorable introduction. The pile of suitcases is actually a sculpture by Joel Ross and each contains the pieces of a hotel room he once covertly disassembled. The jaw-dropping mural is by Canadian artist Andrea Mantin.
If you look closely, you can also see some BassamFellows originals such as the Tray Rack set.
The James Hotel is one of the trendiest boutique retreats in Chicago – met with favorable ratings from interior design aficionados and travelers alike. Do the simple rooms and extravagant gallery-like hallways spark your imagination? Let us know what you think in the comment section below!
