There is nothing like going to New York for a few days and just splurge and be completely free, living the lives we have all seen on TV before. But before going to New York, one of the things that should be on your priority radar is definitely the hotel you will be staying at. Going to New York is much more than going on a vacation, it is an experience you should really embrace and get the most of, so it only makes sense that you stay in an incredible hotel. Today we are introducing you to 11 Howard Hotel in Soho, New York, which not only looks absolutely adorable, but it also features some of the best mid-century lighting designs we have ever seen! Check it out!
11 Howard is the name of this dazzling hotel, and this is the first project in the US by Space Copenhagen. The building was a former post office and was overhauled by local architects Beyer Blinder Belle – the firm responsible for the renovation of The Met Breuer.
Located on Howard Street, the 221-room hotel was opened in April 2016 by property tycoon Aby Rosen. Space Copenhagen worked with creative director Anda Andrei to design the spaces and furniture for 11 Howard.

“We’re really interested in materials – stone, woods, leathers,” said Space Copenhagen co-founder Signe Bindslev Henriksen. “We love things that age well. It’s part of our responsibility that a project lives on in a beautiful manner long after we’ve left.”
The studio created a range of custom furniture, handmade in Denmark, for the rooms. Adapted from its Fly collection for Danish brand &tradition, the lounge pieces are made from oiled oak to add to the light color palette of the walls and flooring.
Space Copenhagen also designed a range of lighting for 11 Howard, while plaster wall ceramics by artist Katie Yang also hang in the bedrooms.
In contrast, The Blond bar downstairs is decorated with dark woods and golden metals. It is designed to accommodate guests during the day, visitors in the evening, and transform into a nightclub later on.
“Most importantly, everything we create revolves around the human factor,” he added. “We’re always thinking about the impact space has on people.”
