This New Miami Hotel is Inspired by the Timeless Glamour of Life at Sea
Mr. C Coconut Grove is awash in high-seas style.
15 May 2019
In Miami, it’s not uncommon to see glamorous yachts sailing by on the calm waters of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the frequency of these sightings, few hotels have drawn inspiration from these luxurious vessels.
Enter Mr. C Coconut Grove, a sleek new hotel that brings the glamour of life at sea to land. Presiding over Miami’s Biscayne Bay, the 100-room property boasts an array of nautical-inspired features: a gleaming, hull-like exterior; a timber-paneled, double-height lobby; and vibrant interiors with pops of Bellini peach and sea blue.
Tedeschi USA, a leading company in luxury furniture, has created all the furniture and FF&E of the rooms and public areas.
To learn more about the breezy look, we caught up with the property’s designer, Martin Brudnizki.
Mr. C Coconut Grove captures the timeless charm of Italy’s iconic coastal style. The interiors are inspired by the honesty and materiality of classic yacht, with high gloss timber paneling and a double-height lobby. I wanted the design to hark back to Italy’s golden era, so there are plenty of mid-century details throughout, like Murano glass chandeliers, large-scale terrazzo floors, and sleek mirrored and chrome accents.”
