Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans Design Narrative Chandelier Bar :

New Orleans is a city that embraces a multicultural heritage, and celebrates life, alluring gardens, art, music, and cuisine.

Set on two riverfront acres that will be flanked by lush gardens, the design of the hotel is inspired by the sanctuary and allure of this botanic backdrop. It is this restful setting that the interiors become a foundation to celebrate the multi-cultural heritage of the city through art, food, and threads of historic influence. It is also a city and place of memories filled with cherished heirlooms. It is from this legacy that the interiors emerge.

The Bar is centered in the middle of the lobby and is enveloped by a grand lighting installation that is made up of 15000 varying crystal and glass arrangements creating the hint of an heirloom chandelier shape. The twinkling reflective gentle movement of the chandelier results in an alluring mood. The experience creates a layered story of discovery in a room that is subdivided by contemporary shutter screens made of oak, iron, and curated art that create intimate spaces with their arrangement. The Bar and Lobby is envisioned as a garden pavilion,
