Luxury hotels use high-end art in suites

Trend is natural evolution in the luxury market

Luxury hotels are increasingly making their public spaces more attractive with high-end art, and now some are putting expensive art in the suites. The trend is a natural evolution in the luxury market, experts say.

A collection of 26 limited-edition pieces by Italian designers and architects called Luxury Is Not a Waste adorns the new Roman Penthouse at the Regina Hotel Baglioni in Rome. The Rome Cavalieri has a suite with Andy Warhol’s 1981 work Dollar Signs.

The Pierre hotel in New York City will hang a canvas from its exclusive collection in the living room of its Tata Suite before the end of the year, while the presidential suite at the Greenbrier in West Virginia has paintings by Edward Beyer and Rembrandt Peale.

The new Aman hotel in Venice and the Saxon hotel in Johannesburg are other examples of museum-quality in the suites.
