Globally revered British interior designer Martin Brudnizki presents a strikingly vibrant bohemian-beach chic concept that reestablishes the ideals of 1950s glamour, housed inside a historic Art Deco tower fully restored by Kobi Karp Architects.
Thompson Miami Beach’s 380 ocean front, ocean view and city view guest rooms and its 30 suites, are the perfect blend of beach appointments and mid-century international resort style. All rooms offer sitting areas, 1950s-inspired beds, retro bathrooms crafted with nautical accents, and a vanity space with an oversized mirror and terrazzo top. Included in the hotel’s collection of 30 suites, the signature Thompson Suites have private living rooms, dining areas, and terraces, all furnished with an eclectic assortment of vintage furniture that allows each room to feel distinct.
Located on the hotel’s main level, Michelle Bernstein’s Seagrape restaurant has the glamour of mid-century modern design with light oak tables that feature subtle geometric patterns. Seagrape’s horseshoe-shaped, green marble-clad bar is in the heart of the space and an area for guests to sip expertly crafted cocktails and indulge in the modern retro setting. Furnishings in the cocktail lounge include a mix of vintage pieces from the 1920s through the 1960s.
Upon entry to Thompson Miami Beach’s secondary front drive entrance, two sweeping staircases lead to the Crown Room, a library-type setting, where an artistic, creative space greets guests with an intimate nook to enjoy a hand- crafted cocktail, sink into a good book, meet up with friends, and even host a breakout meeting. Crown Room exudes a beach house feel, with a white herringbone patterned wood ceiling, lovingly worn wood white walls and bookcases contrasted against an eclectic and colorful mixture of bright furniture and light fixtures.
The Garden, created by Miami’s famed landscape architect Raymond Jungles provides guests with complete privacy with a walled forest of native plants. Stone paving of varying heights offers built-in seating and a textured contrast to the colorful fabrics of the space. The design continues to the hotel’s beach area, where bright retro-inspired sun loungers and umbrellas are available to hotel guests.
