Loews Hotel

Loews Annapolis Hotel is a luxury destination located near the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, Maryland. Littman Brands Contract assisted with their lobby renovation, manufacturing a chandelier for the space with their Troy Custom Design Studio arm. The design goal of the centerpiece was to complement the lobby’s contemporary décor and nautical black, white, taupe, and navy blue color scheme, as well as help anchor the orientation of the front desks to the entryway doors, according to the design team at RTKL Associates. The result is a 9’-diameter drum-shaped lighting fixture with see-through metal mesh surrounding the exterior. A 4’-diameter inner ring holds fourteen visible 40W filament bulbs with white candle covers. The chandelier is done in a bronze-like, dark graphite finish. The fixture is visually impactful, said the RTKL team, yet not so heavy in appearance that it overwhelms the space. It also complements a glass tile mosaic set behind the front desks. The piece was built at Troy Custom Design Studio’s 200,000- square-foot manufacturing facility located in City of Industry, California.
