According to Dan Lubner, Hospitality Design Division President for Robb & Stucky, “We were thrilled to create the furnishings for this property. Our intention was to ensure that the new interiors pay tribute to the historical relevance of the 114-year old resort while still providing guests with the comfort and elegance of today’s contemporary furnishings.
“Due to the historic character of the building, the units were not identical in size,” said Kris Kolar, ASID and Robb & Stucky’s Vice President of Interior Design. “This meant that space planning was a critical element of the project and furnishings had to meet certain requirements to complement the premium taste levels of the resort’s guests. First, we presented The Breakers with a 3-D rendering of our design for the finished room, plus carpet, wallpaper and drapery samples. Then, we manufactured furniture prototypes and completed a sample room, which contained the total interior design, all the way down to the smallest accessories. After approval, we custom crafted every element for these elegant interiors.” The installation of new furnishings began at the end of June with all units completed by the end of August.
Robb & Stucky Interiors (www.robbstucky.com) previously completed various assignments for The Breakers, including furnishings for the landmark property’s residential apartments, located at One North Breakers Row, which resulted in a prestigious Silver PRISM design award for the “Best Living Room for a Low Rise Condominium” by Gold Coast Builders Association.
“The Breakers Palm Beach is extremely pleased to partner with a reputable company such as Robb & Stucky,” said Alex Gilmurray, chief financial officer of The Breakers. “They have displayed a keen understanding of our product and we look forward to sharing these revitalized rooms with our guests.”
