Alexandra Collection, Ritz supplier
Coleccion Alexandra is one of the main suppliers of furniture for the Ritz Madrid hotel, which reopens its doors after three years of refurbishment.
The Spanish architect Rafael de La-Hoz and the French interior designers Gilles & Boissier, have been in charge of restoring this iconic hotel in Madrid to its former glory in luxurious style, counting on Coleccion Alexandra as the major furniture supplier for its vast number of rooms, suites and public areas.
The project has restored the original splendour of this emblematic building which dates from the beginning of the 20th century. Special emphasis has been placed on exclusive design elements inspired by the hotel’s history within the city as well as Spanish art and culture.
Mandarin Oriental entrusted us with the development, manufacture and installation of furniture carefully designed by Gilles & Bossier. Thanks to our business acumen and know how Coleccion Alexandra has been able to fuse together traditional handicraft and the latest technology in the furniture industry for this grand project.
Traditional cabinetry, carved wood or spiral Solomonic columns are just some of the techniques applied in the furniture production using solid oak selected for this exclusive endeavour.
Specially treated metals, Calcutta Gold and Saint Laurent marble for rooms and suites, or high quality porcelain tiles for the hall and 5 culinary spaces, managed by the top chef Quique Dacosta, are just a few of the exclusive materials used for the renovation of this legendary building.
Handcrafted upholstery techniques including traditional cordovan deserve special mention. Exclusive velvet fabrics have been used as well as traditionally embossed leather for headboards and armchairs.
The Ritz Madrid which is a listed historical building, boasts 153 luxury rooms, including 53 suites and can be said to be one of the most luxurious hotels in Europe.opa.
