Hotel Palazzo Zichy, Budapest sets the best stage possible to show off the beauty of these over-sized pendant lights designed by Marcel Wanders for FLOS.
They are gorgeous!!!
I had seen them in showrooms, but this was the first time up close and personal. The combination of the liquid-paint black exterior and the fabulously decorated matte plaster interior was stunning. Especially beautiful was the manner the light bulb is concealed.
This hotel, where we were fortunate to spend four nights was such a treat for the eye: a beautifully restored private Palazzo that must have been practically gutted then restored lovingly with attention to every detail.
Great, great lights everywhere. I was in heaven and couldn’t stop taking photos.
It is located really conveniently close to everything. We walked from there through streets lined with small outdoor cafes and restaurants to the center of town, the Danube river and across the bridge to the castle.
Budapest is a beautiful city, full of history and much more vibrant than I had expected. This will definitely not be our last visit! – and we know where to stay! It was not only the lights and the architecture that intrigued me, but the service, which was so warm and friendly.
