We’re giving away some signed copies of Jay Greene’s book, Design is How it Works. He likes the way we work design, and did us the honor of including us. Send your best photos of your favorite design and vintage aspects of any Ace Hotel. We’ll confer and nail-bite and debate passionately late into the night, and then we’ll send the winners their booty. Godspeed!
Loft Room 1011 at Ace NYC features two pieces from Timothy Liles’ new collection through May 20th: the Crested Comb-Back Chair and Sweetser Lamp, made in collaboration with Lilies and local craftspeople and artisans. Find out more about the pieces on Design Mouth.
at Ace Palm Springs. They’re solid chums of Ace, and their party was amazing. Parra from Amsterdam created the look and feel of the wedding and this incredible cake. And guests received these custom bamboo towels by Luxurious Organics (check out their shop). Everything was very YES. Goro’s in Harajuku made a special tie pin for the groom and the wedding party wore these top-secret custom shoes. Afterward, there was an dance party in the Amigo Room that none of us will soon forget. See more on Jarrett’s blog — he’s on a honeymoon right now, but stay tuned for more.

Johnne Eschleman is the resident artist at Ace Hotel New York. He also made the walls and signs special at Ace Hotel Portland. Johnne tears up old dictionaries and uses heavy equipment under the influence. He has a good eye for straight lines and lyrics unfurling backwards. He keeps hours we could call odd, but they are our hours, too.
If you’re ever standing around in New York or Portland, look at the walls, and look for Johnne. He might be around.
