Glam It Up
PYR channels Art Deco in a luxurious new-build
By JoAnn Greco

Although it's unabashedly a new-build, the 170-key Waldorf
Astoria Beverly Hills doesn't take its iconic position at the corner
of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards lightly. Its nod to the
city's Art Deco heritage begins with a prow-like limestone exterior
(jointly designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, Perkins+Will, and Gensler)
that bursts into bloom as the visitor steps into a double-height
lobby. Before her: a vision of creamy
marble pillars and flooring, sleek
black lacquer furniture, touches of
celadon and gold, and accents of
Lalique crystal and bronze.
Upstairs, guestroom interiors-by
PYR-further carry the lobby's muted
palette into airy abodes where the
beds are outfitted with curvy padded

headboards and marble baths feature gold accents and standalone
sinks that resemble a starlet's dressing table.
Elsewhere, the public spaces skew darker. An injection of rich
cherry wood, plantation shutters, and palm-leaf patterned toss
pillows moves Jean-Georges Vongerichten's fine dining restaurant
into a warmer, but understated, tropical ambience. The La Prairie
Spa proceeds further along that
scale, with a moody reception that
emphasizes bold black and glittering
gold tones.
The sense of glamor reaches
its apotheosis in the ballroom
prefunction, which is one of PYR
principal and global design director
Pierre-Yves Rochon's favorite areas.
