Refurbished in collaboration with interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, both suites were designed with the idea to create unique luxury spaces, characterized by a defined look and feel. The suites are located in the Hotel’s casa ringhiera wing, arranged around open balconies that overlook a glass-covered atrium.
Positioned as the Hotel’s most prestigious luxury suite, the Royal Suite occupies the entire fifth floor of Four Seasons Hotel Milano. Opening up the design of luxury apartment style private sanctum, Pierre-Yves Rochon has instilled an airy and timeless look.
“We tried to give a intimate residential feeling to the Royal Suite by adding a library and marrying together different styles of furniture like people do in private apartments,” Rochon said.
Resplendent in light beige, silvery and white tones, the suite’s apartment-style layout flows fluidly from one zone to another. An elegant white leather partition discreetly divides the bedroom area from a cozy lounge space. The bed is now positioned to face the suite’s step-out balcony that offers sweeping spectacular views across the neoclassical rooftops of Milan. Elegant bright floral fabrics decorate the suite’s sitting and reading room with a fireplace that overlooks a private terrace and garden manicured with iconic Mediterranean plants. The sleek kitchenette is equipped with temperature-controlled wine refrigerators and modern tools for cuisine preparation. Accessible by a dedicated lift, the Royal Suite can be connected via a private internal staircase to a Premium Room and an Executive Suite on the floor below to become either a two or three bedroom residence.
Showcasing a decidedly contemporary look, the Fashion Suite (Suite 444) on the fourth floor of the Hotel is a study in striking design and colour. Rochon selected a bright kelly green with black and white accents for the suite’s palette.
“When I chose the furniture for the Fashion Suite I wanted to remain in the spirit of the 50s and 60s with pieces by Saarinen with strong lines and an intense green colour,” Rochon said.
Providing a stylish contrast, an enveloping green armchair and pouf is positioned on a graphic black and white rug, joined by lacquered black furniture and small grey veined marble tulip tables. Large french doors open up onto a long terrace bordered with hedges and a Knoll table and chairs fitted with cushions upholstered in a chic herringbone fabric.
Both the Royal Suite and the Fashion Suite were restyled as part of the Hotel’s ongoing room refurbishment project.
