The similarities between the Milanese, Venetian and Chicagoan ways of life are more than one may think. Aside from food, we're thinking architecture and design and craftsmanship in luxury. These attributes make this new exclusive collaboration between the Park Hyatt on Michigan Ave and Bottega Veneta scream for attention and reinforce the value these cultures place on understated luxury.
The Bottega Veneta suite, which overlooks the lake and measures a spacious 1,400 square feet, is comprised of a bedroom, an open living room/dining room, a kitchenette, and two bathrooms. The clean lines and modern furniture that characterize Park Hyatt are reflected in the sleek, elegant design of the Bottega Veneta suite. The rooms are spacious and uncluttered, maximizing the light and unobstructed views of Chicago's expansive lakefront framed by the enormous bay windows that outline the space.
The palette is warm and light, made up of signature Bottega Veneta neutrals. Some noteworthy pieces around the the suite employing this palette are from Bottega Veneta's collection of home furnishings from the META collection produced in collaboration with Poltrona Frau. Also from the collection are a double folding camp stool and a folding camp bed, as well as chests of drawers, coffee and end tables, floor lamps, table lamps, consoles, and a dining room table. The floor of the suite features porcelain gres throughout, with exception to the bedroom, which is completely covered with soft, New Zealand wool carpets. Two wool rugs from the Bottega Veneta collection compliment the living area. The cost of this penultimate luxury? Only a cool $4,500 per night.
