Swissôtel - «The Doorman Uniform»
«Your first smile will come from our doorman.
His uniform is inspired by traditional fashions from Appenzell,
and is designed by Ida Gut, one of Switzerland’s
best-known fashion designers. Sebastian Fässler,
a renowned Appenzell-based silversmith,
also contributed to the uniform’s style by crafting the shiny ornaments.»
Swissôtel - The perfect bed
«We got our start in Switzerland and we’ve been sharing our love of hospitality
with the world ever since. Take our pride in making the perfect bed.
A bed is at the heart of any room and our delight in its quiet
perfection reflects who we are more than anything. No matter where we go,
we’ve found that people value quality in life as much as we do.
Our mantra, “live it well,” is met with both a smile and a
global understanding that happiness is life’s true reward.»

upholsterers, rebuild interiors in the original Versailles style.

«It’s a truly wonderful film, managing just
the right amount of attention to detail
without coming across as artificial or trite.
If you can get your paws on this film,
you really should.» - trevorhoppe.com
