Old world Italian cabinetry in… The Plaza Hotel!

One of the most famous hotels in the world (if not THE most famous), The Plaza Hotel, in NYC, is undergoing a complete renovation. The new owners, the Elad Group, had chosen Küche+Cucina to create all the kitchens and closets for the hotel.  The cabinetry for the hotel kitchens and wet-bars, as well as the closets are all made in Italy, in the ‘Plaza tradition’ – the cabinetry is hand-painted with gold leaf accents and the closets are done in Mahogany wood with a ‘diamond shaped’ design. The hotel is scheduled to reopen to the public in early 2008.
