I was recently invited to the official opening reception for The Metropolitan Suite which has now become a eco-friendly event space. The Metropolitan Suite features retrofitted design elements such as the harvested dark wood floors, without insecticides or laminating adhesives, paired with high ceilings to create a dramatic effect. The space looked amazing and I was excited to tour around learn more.
The lobby tiles and restroom areas are made by Emilceramica S.p.A. and are comprised of 100% recycled content that offers a wood-like look. The flooring of the kitchen and the back hallway contains patent-pending BioStride by Migrations, which is made with rapidly renewable US-grown plant ingredients, which reduces reliance on petroleum and fossil fuels. The 120-low voltage LED track lighting reduces energy consumption while able to create flexible mood setting.
The space looked amazing, the food was delicious and it felt great to know that such an event can be done without destroying natural resources. I'm looking forward to attending more events at the new eco-friendly Metropolitan Suit.
