The Thread of Luxury

Housed in the former headquarters of spain’s cotton textile foundation, the cotton house hotel in barcelona has retained its historical features, while contemporary boutique class is now expressed in its very fabric.

Acclaimed Catalan artist and designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán's sympathetic refurbishment of the 19th-century neoclassical building kept original elements, such as the inlaid parquet floor tiles, boiserie-embellished walls and ceiling frescoes, and the famous spiral staircase, built in 1957, suspended from the metal frame of the upper floor – the only one of its kind in Europe. Cotton also played a role as Lázaro's muse: Fluffy cotton floral displays dot shared spaces, and backlit fabric books shine out from glass bookcases in the hotel’s restaurant, Batuar. The bedrooms take their names from different cottons, and only the finest cottons and linens are deployed throughout.
