Nurture psychic connections in the Apollonia Dining Room

Steeped in the moody mythologies of a lost era, the Apollonia startles tradition with supernatural beauty. Its furnishings are rare and ravenous for culture, obliquely elegant with hybrid forms and opulent textures.

Set piece to intimate, idea-frenzied victuals, the Apollonia regales in bohèmian rapture, nurturing psychic connections among intellects, aesthetes, and empaths. Rich lacquered woods, églomisé, and caned mahogany revel in ambient absinthe- and aqua-hued horizons.
