Design has always been an integral part of the hospitality industry. And luxury properties are relying more and more on it, not only to differentiate themselves from other properties, but also to create a memorable experience for their guests. Lavish interiors regardless of the design aesthetic are the standard and that includes everything from custom furnishings to designer bathroom amenities.
So if you find yourself wishing you had the same velvet sofa at home you saw at your last visit to the SoHo House or the many cool art objects that your room at the Miami Beach Edition was decorated with, you are not alone.
Thankfully, 5-star hotel chains and resorts know that sharing is caring so a lot of them have launched online stores where you can buy a lot of the room decor that their properties are decked in.
Keep scrolling to see what we are shopping from some of the world’s most exclusive hotels.
The Four Seasons
One of the things that keep us coming back to the Four Seasons hotels is the comfort of their beds but most specifically how easy it is to drift off into a blissful sleep—which is not always the case when you are staying at a hotel room however luxurious it may be. But once you get into bed and feel the incredibly warm and soft comforter envelop your body, you doze off almost immediately.
That’s why one of the items we are shopping from the Four Seasons online boutique is their all-seasons duvet filled with light hypoallergenic down. We can guarantee you it will make you not want to go out of bed in the morning.

The Miami Beach Edition
This iconic Miami Beach boutique property has made it so easy to add its modern aesthetic to your home. The hotel, a favorite of guests for its prime beachfront location, has also been keeping its patrons entertained with an on-site bowling alley and an ice rink.
So to remind us of it, we’re adding this bowling bowl to our shopping cart. It’s designed by contemporary visual artist Olivia Steele who uses neon light in her works of art. She designed this one especially for the Miami Beach Edition, an American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property, and its sign says “Future memories.” Some of the other highlights you can shop on the site: a copper pineapple that doubles as a cocktail glass and a pouf that sports a marble-inspired pattern, all pieces you may have enjoyed at the hotel.

This luxury private island resort, another American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property, will take your breath away with its powdery white sand beaches, clear turquoise water, and some of the best sunsets you’ll ever see. Its private villas nestled among lush greenery and palm trees prove that sustainable, nature-inspired design could be incredibly chic.
To remind us of this divinely beautiful spot and add an island vibe to our home, we are buying this set of four water glasses created by hand in the resort from recycled bottle glass collected from the Baa Atoll. The glasses are unique in shape and pattern—they have been submerged in water to create the one-of-a-kind crackle effect.

The Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua offers its guests an upscale getaway in the heart of the Dominican Republic’s capital.

It has a glossy white finish and an eye-catching design.

Rated as one of the best small luxury properties not just in the country but also in the world, Blackberry Farm is an idyllic, fairytale-like estate in the Smoky Mountains foothills in Tennessee. Its guests are treated to wine tastings, gourmet farm-to-table dining experiences, gorgeous views, and luxury accommodations oozing a timeless vibe.
We are definitely adding a few pieces of Blackberry Farm’s sophisticated dinner- and barware like this beautiful wine decanter that sports a swirl pattern. It is designed by Blackberry Farm’s owners and hand-blown in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The Ritz-Carlton’s name has always been synonymous with luxury amenities and sophisticated design. Whether you are in one of their properties in Hawaii or Chicago, you can expect the same level of impeccable service delivered in their contemporary furnished residences that sport custom finishes and designer textiles.
We are especially fond of this chic table lamp that can be found at The Ritz-Carlton Residences on Singer Island, Palm Beach. We love the stylish hourglass shape and hammered brass construction as well as the timeless design of the shade in an off-white hue.

There are few properties in Positano that match the beauty and dreaminess of this American Express Hotels & Resorts property. The family-owned hotel, with its Bougainvillea-covered whitewashed walls, unobstructed views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, and rooms that feature locally handmade tiles, vaulted ceilings, and artworks from the family’s collection, is as much a bucket list-worthy property as it is its location.
Thankfully, the hotel and its owners have expanded the Sirenuse brand to include a range of apparel, fragrance, and home décor items that can be found in the property. You can make your sofa cozier with this beautiful hand embroidered square pillow crafted from woven cotton and inspired by traditional (and extremely intricate) suzani embroideries from Central Asia.

SoHo House founder Nick Jones launched the SoHo Home collection because guests at the famous clubhouses kept asking him how they can get their hands on the comfortable and elegant furniture and décor pieces they saw at the properties.
So whether you are a fan of the Alice sofa you lounged on at SoHo House Chicago or you’d love to add a couple of the jute floor cushions you spotted at Soho Farmhouse to your living room, you can now shop it all on SoHo Home. We can’t wait to install this cool floor mirror that can be found in the bathrooms at Dumbo House. It has a curved brass frame inspired by 1960s Italian modernism.
