Race to the Top: 51 Buckingham Gate Opens New Luxury Jaguar Suite

October 12, 2011 By:Christopher Roney

51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences, in London has opened up its newest suite, inspired by the design of one of the finest luxury vehicles, the Jaguar. Though it’s not a Mustang, the new Jaguar suite is bucking trends: It’s sleek, modern, and one of (if not the first), rooms to bring a sports car aesthetic into the lap of luxury. Buckingham Gate is bringing the cool Jaguar vibe indoors with sleek wood paneling and custom wallpaper. Minimalistic design choices hint at the unique curves of the vehicle itself, and they go so far as to shape the fireplace in the form of the iconic rear window. The devil is in the details, and Buckingham Gate has gotten it all right. From the dark leather to the custom wallpaper, the room evokes Jaguar’s design choices without ever approaching gaudiness. It’s well-crafted, timeless, and minimalistic, and I wish I were staying there right now.

If you have even a passing appreciation for the artistry that goes into a fine luxury car, you are guaranteed to fall in love with the space the Buckingham Gate has crafted in its new Jaguar suite.
