Last month I was able to visit The Ritz-Carlton Residences, which had opened with five new model units designed by some of the most prestigious designers in the country. Aside from the model units, the visit was exquisite from start to finish, with staff and services available and ready to cater to every need of its guests.
That sophistication and commitment to a luxury lifestyle was seen all the way through to each of the model units we toured. These ultra-luxury residences were designed by leading interior designers from around the globe. Each of these designers took into consideration the lifestyle of today’s senior executives, who are typically international travelers and require the ultimate in services that are backed by the staff of the Ritz-Carlton Residences. The designers for these models each brought their own aesthetic and signature to each space, all while centering their design around a Ritz-Carlton lifestyle. Designers included:
Frank Ponterio of Chicago, known for bringing a timeless aesthetic to contemporary spaces, balancing elegance with modern ease. Artistry, authenticity and personal style are key tenets of his interior projects.
Doug Atherley of London, who specializes in the architecture, design and decoration of luxury interiors, with projects including yachts and private jets. His design style, while carefully calculated, aims to be relaxed in the end and appear effortless.
Samantha Todhunter of London describes her vision as a fresh take on traditional design, merging classic styles with glamour and wit to complement the building and city that surrounds it.
Julia Wong of Los Angeles has 20 years of experience in the industry and is widely recognized by design enthusiasm for her ability to captivate residential and commercial spaces.
Javier Martin Muriel of Spain uses his innate sense of creativity and enduring passion in each project, creative avant-garde interiors from Europe to Africa to the U.S.
Mick De Giulio of Chicago brought his near-40-year experience in innovating kitchen spaces to the kitchens for the model units. De Giulio has been recognized worldwide for his creative energy and work on premiere projects in the design world.
Each of these model units was a stunner, serving as the ultimate inspiration for what life at The Ritz-Carlton Residences could bring. The designers each built their project around that lifestyle. Seeing these units in person not only reinforces the aesthetics of these beautiful Chicago condos, but the whole experience that comes with being a guest of the Ritz-Carlton–except this isn’t a hotel meant for a quick visit, but a way of life.
