The Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace will refresh its guestrooms and public areas with a more modern, residential vibe by the end of the year.
The 182-room luxury, boutique hotel opened in 2013 within the famous resort on the Las Vegas Strip. Rockwell Group, which designed the guestrooms and common areas, is overseeing the renovation.
The goal of the updates is to impart a streamlined, lighter and more luxe aesthetic, according to a news release announcing the project. Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold epoxy to create cohesion, has inspired many of the elements, according to the release.
The new guestrooms will feature a custom sofa in a dozen different patchworked upholsteries, including painterly style prints and muted, textured graphics. A quartzite coffee table will have a gold base and a cracked kintsugi effect.
New carpet will have aubergine (eggplant) hues as well as abstract and painterly-style florals inspired by 19th-century Japanese artist Tsubaki Chinzan. Another addition will be a desk or dining table, which will be connected to the dresser by a quartz buffer.
Guest corridors will feature a custom carpet with rippling forms, reminiscent of a koi fish pond, and patterns inspired by suminagashi, the art of Japanese paper marbling. The lobby carpet will depict slabs of marble and agate surrounded by gold veining with bursts of gray, rust and blue.
