Classic Design sighting: American Trade Hotel, Panama

This is a project we worked on late last summer (seems so long ago now!) - Classic Design fabricated the back banquette cushions for recently renovated American Trade Hotel in Panama (part of the Ace Hotel chain).

This was a little complicated in that, as you can see, the back cushions are hanging from a rail. All the cushions have to be hanging in the same place; we fabricated the leather lacing and leather tabs, making sure every cushion would align properly. It's difficult to see in the photos, but the cushions are not flat; the lower 8" of each cushion has a built in lumbar roll. Here's our little mock up below - the ends of each leather rope is finished in a 'noose' tie.

There are some beautiful photos of the completed hotel project, as well as the story behind the restoration here, here, and here.
