This February, a dash of Zen is coming to the heart of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. Thanks to Wesley Cadle, renowned interior and event designer, this year’s Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge will be transformed into a relaxing and glamorous oasis inspired by the om and aesthetic of the Far East.

Guests of the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge will be whisked away from New York’s hustle and bustle into a tranquil room bathed in a palette of earthy terra cottas, warm cinnabar and blacks paired with natural textiles, like flax and mohair. Cadle’s design is a modern interpretation of Asian traditions including Libeco Lagae terra cotta glazed Belgian linen walls tacked with antique bronze studs, alcove seating groups with dramatic pillows, and traditional Asian consoles. Accent tables made from repurposed moped tires and lacquered stone calligraphy brushes create surprising twists on eastern conventions.

The lighting, linen wall panels, and linen covered furniture combine to offer a relaxed, zen, feel to the room.

Cadle has also teamed up with textile designer Nicolette Mayer to create over-sized patterns of Mayer’s Chinese porcelain images on Belgian linen. The outcome is an inspired interpretation of an old motif that takes a conventional object to a sublimely new level.

This serene alcove sitting area is created using a flax linen panel with prints by the Nicolette Mayer Collection, flanked by terra cotta dyed linen wall panels and beautiful Asian accented wall sconces.

This is the sixth season Mercedes-Benz has tapped distinguished interior designer Cadle to design the star Lounge at Lincoln Center. The Augusta-based event and interior designer is known for his ability to create a timeless aesthetic by focusing on guest experience, comfort and enjoyment while visually adding a twist, surprise or hint of the unexpected. Perhaps a reflection of his genteel southern way, he starts with a single note of inspiration and builds on it, often employing an exciting mix of textures and patterns.
