Futura Interiors was fortunate enough to acquire and complete an interior design project for a hotel in San Francisco by the name of Hotel Whitcomb. The hotel was established in the early 20th – century and holds an array of history. The historical landmark’s vision was customization, allowing for a number of suite concepts with the ability to appeal to different consumers and residence of the hotel for the duration of their stay. In order to achieve this, each individual suite was designed apart from another, creating different atmospheres within the spaces.
In addition to the design aspect of the project, Futura Interiors bared the resources to supply all FF&E for the project. Futura Interiors is extremely proud of the outcome and was happy to assist Hotel Whitcomb in the renovation of their suites. On the Hotel’s website, under “Rooms and Suites”, Hotel Whitcomb raves, “The hotel’s 460 spacious and beautifully-appointed guestrooms and 12 parlor suites deliver a luxurious hospitality experience with an array of modern amenities and exceptional value. For an unforgettable experience, the Penthouse Governor’s Suite offers spectacular views of San Francisco.” As well it is described by the facility itself as, “A unique mix of vintage hospitality and urban convenience.”
Here are some photographs of the suites, designed and supplied by Futura Interiors:
In 2011, Futura Interiors had the opportunity of designing an office space for the Million Dollar Baby company and their team. Futura assisted Million Dollar Baby, manufacturer of convenient baby bedroom decor, such as baby cribs, railings, dressers, storage units and more, in transforming the company warehouse located in El Monte, California into a fun and inspirational yet professional working environment. The Futura Interiors design specialist utilized a variety of colors, such as yellow, purple, orange and green on the walls throughout the entire facility. In order to assist the Million Dollar Baby team with the creative process, in the conference room, a multicolored abstract striped carpet was laid as well as Idea Paint, a product from MDC Flooring, was utilized on a select wall allowing the wall to double as a white board. The combination of these two tactics will aid in the expansion of team and product ideas and allow endless space to map the ideas out.
Along the stair case, Futura Interiors opted for a mock brick wall to create texture and personality in the office, as the employees transition from the first to the second floor of the facility. As well, the stair case consists of suspended Mahogany wood, creating a very modern appeal that is pleasing to the eye. With hanging oval shaped lights shining down onto the wood, to compliment the material, the stair case is an all around beauty.
For the open cubicle area of the Milllion Dollar Baby warehouse turned office, Futura Interiors utilized a simple brown carpet to coincide with the mock brick wall from the stair case leading down into the area. With a green based paint on one side of the stair case and a purple color and floral decal on the opposing side, this area of the office bares a vibrant visual.
The Futura Interior team is extremely proud of the Million Dollar Baby project outcome. Allow the photographs to further illustrate the work.
