IHG’s InterContinental unveils limited-edition designer suites

Artist Claire Luxton has curated interiors in London, New York and Dubai properties

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts, has collaborated with British artist Claire Luxton to create limited-edition suites at InterContinental London Park Lane, InterContinental New York Barclay and InterContinental Dubai Festival City.

Called ‘The Claire Luxton Experience’, the InterContinental limited-edition suites depict the artist’s interpretation of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts.

Taking cues from her personal travels, Luxton aims to bring the brand to life through her artistic signatures of natural flora and fauna commonly seen in her artwork.

Luxton’s artwork will be complemented by an array of sensory experiences, including a drawn bath, curated mini bar and a soundscape.

Every detail and room accent across the suites has been transformed to reflect the artist’s style with features including bespoke artwork, soft furnishings and butterflies suspended from ceilings. Additional discoveries in the suites include a mini bar with varied drinks and snacks from InterContinental destinations such as Brazil and France as well as a special playlist and coffee table books reflecting Luxton’s travels.

Claire Luxton said: “I’m thrilled to partner with InterContinental Hotels & Resorts again, interpreting the brand’s story of worldliness. Global travel inspires my work, and I hope it shines through in every detail of the collaboration, from the foyer florals and the hotel team’s custom scarves to the drawn bath experience and the artworks themselves.

“Each flower and animal within my work for InterContinental reflects a hotel or resort from its past, present or future. In curating the design of these suites and experiences, I sought to explore the delicate equilibrium between humans and nature while celebrating the magic of wanderlust.”

Luxton has brought her touch to other areas of the hotels too. At InterContinental New York Barclay and Dubai Festival City, Claire Luxton-inspired food and beverage offerings will be available, including a selection of cocktails, mocktails and afternoon teas.

She’s tapped into her own global travels to inform and inspire her interpretation of the brand’s rich heritage and pioneering spirit. The result is a unique experience of discovery that captures the beauty and energy of InterContinental’s far-flung destinations.”

The Claire Luxton Experience will be available at InterContinental London Park Lane, InterContinental New York Barclay and InterContinental Dubai Festival City until mid-July 2022.
