Celebrity interior designer Kenneth Bordewick, who's decorated the homes of Paul McCartney, the Jonas Brothers, and Mariah Carey to name a few, has been pegged to design this year's Golden Globe Awards Presenters Lounge. The room will be visited by a few dozen of Hollywood's favorite celebrities Sunday night before they walk onstage to present the award show's iconic golden globe statuettes. So Bordewick's theme, "the glamorous luxury of Hollywood's Golden Age with the glitter of today's top stars," is only fitting.
Although the room will only be used for one evening, he's working with a big budget. Some of the furnishings include vintage Renea Lalique pieces valued at $800,000, a Moura Starr leather sofa and black crystal coffee table valued at $400,000, a bronze sculpture by famed artist Gilad Ben-Atzi, and hand-embroidered black and white silk drapes valued at $25,000. He's also borrowed a few pieces of artwork from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation and the Yehoshua Kovarsky Family Trust estimated to be worth more than $1 million. All in all, the room's furnishings will be outfitted with more than $2.2 million in furnishings! And I thought red carpet dresses cost an arm and a leg!
