Sinclair Oil Holdings 1929 iconic building in Ft. Worth Texas is now home to The Sinclair, a Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel. Opened in January 2020 this 164-room hotel boasts magnificent historic features well preserved over the past 90 years. Built to serve as Sinclair Oil Holdings headquarters the building was occupied as an office building until the time of the renovation.
The interior design draws on Ft. Worth swagger yet is elevated for a luxurious modern experience. Drawing inspiration from the glamour of the Art Deco period the material palette includes rich walnut, velvet, sleek marbles, and rich gold metals. Cowhide and leather are juxtaposed against the elegant finish palette and create a distinctly Ft. Worth experience. Art provides a surprising twist in the elegant property showcasing pop-culture icons and iconic Texas characters in cartoons. Guestrooms provide a modern, sleek aesthetic with Italian made casegoods, marble and polished stainless steel vanities, and wood flooring.
This project includes the interior transformation of four luxury suites. The four suites are stacked atop two corners of the building, capturing wrap-around views of Manhattan and northward to Central Park. The four suites within this scope are part of a larger suite collection at the hotel and were designed to evoke a classically inspired New York apartment, “it’s like your own personal townhouse in the sky.”
To meet the challenge of working with such vast spaces, and to make it feel more intimate and inviting, the design team integrated libraries and private lounges into the bedroom areas, custom-designed rugs throughout the suites, and carefully arranged seating throughout to create smaller destinations within each penthouse. The seating can be easily rearranged to accommodate larger, socially distanced gatherings. By underscoring a residential spirit, the design captures the feeling of a classic New York City pied-à-terre with bespoke art collections and unparalleled views.
Drawing inspiration from the geometry of an aerial view of Washington DC, ForrestPerkins served as architect and interior designer to transform the lobby, lounge, and outdoor courtyard at the Fairmont Washington, D.C. The theme is woven throughout the new space and is reflected in a geometrically abstracted map of DC behind the front desk, as well as the dramatic undulating chandelier. Comprised of 4,500 individually suspended shapes of mixed metals, the geometric elements create a play of shadows on the original limestone columns that pay homage to the city’s Neoclassical architecture. Sculptural hand-tufted rugs depicting the city grid and Potomac river unify the space.
Once the social and business epicenter for the city’s elite and influential oil money, this project takes inspiration from the Men’s Social Club itself in its rebirth as a luxury lifestyle hotel. Built in 1927 in the Art Deco architectural style, this new hotel honors its history while creating a modern experience rooted in sophisticated style and premiere hospitality offerings.
The success of the three-year design and construction process attest to the cohesive vision of the developers, the design team, the brand and the operator. Accolades began pouring in as soon as the hotel opened, with highest ratings for all categories.
This national historic landmark was completely renovated by ForrestPerkins to celebrate the style of a bygone era incorporating the modern conveniences today’s travelers require. In the 1950’s legendary Interior Designer, Dorothy Draper designed an elegant china pattern for the hotel in a striking parrot green, edged with gold. Inspired by this, ForrestPerkins wove these bold signature colors through the public spaces and guestrooms.
Designing the interiors of the Read House to convey the essence of a glamorous 1920’s era while interpreting the story of a mysterious tycoon and his lavish, slightly dangerous, and always alluring lifestyle was a memorable experience.
The hotel has wonderful existing interior architectural elements and embellishments, particularly in the Lobby, the Promenade, the Green Room, and the Silver Ballroom, now dressed in new finishes as a stage for the events and experiences that each guest has when they visit or stay in the hotel. Likewise, the spaces we created such as the Lobby Lounge, the Billiard Room, and Bridgeman’s Chop House have distinct personalities and energy, created with traditional millwork but extravagant finishes and opulent decoration. Every space exudes glamor and feels as if Jay Gatsby himself could appear at any moment.
ForrestPerkins transformed The Jefferson Washington, D.C. into a jewel after working on the historic hotel for three years as the Architect of Record and Interior Designer. The 99-room Beaux Arts hotel, four blocks from the White House, is the first in the nation’s capital to be selected for membership in Relais & Chateaux. Whether stopping by for lunch or dinner or treating yourself for your entire visit, The Jefferson is filled with delightful design ideas.

Columbia Place is a story of duality. This single hotel operates under two flags that harmoniously coexist in an architectural shell that incorporates several historic rowhouses into a new-build architectural shell, serving to enhance the duality narrative. Natural juxtapositions in design and amenities lend themselves to an interior palette of contrasting design elements. A pairing of organic and geometric shapes emerges as a design thread that can be found throughout the space.
Opened in 2015, ForrestPerkins reimagined the iconic One Main Place historic office tower, working with the owner KFK Group to program and masterplan this mixed-use development project. Forrest Perkins transformed the building made up of offices and retail as the Interior Designer and Architect of Record for the Westin Dallas Downtown on the top 10 floors of the 33-story tower. The hotel has transformed the Dallas city skyline and offers a unique luxury hotel experience in downtown Dallas.
Recently named by CNN among “20 of America’s most beautiful hotels,” the Nines expresses an individual, eclectic style. ForrestPerkins originally designed the hotel in 2008, and Boutique Design named it Best Hotel of the Year 2009. The unique, whimsical, effortless charm of the hotel has been enhanced by the recently completed renovation, which included Meeting Rooms, the Ballroom, the Lobby and public spaces. The new owner of the hotel, Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, wanted to retain the original character of the hotel, which is known and loved by guests as well as Portland locals. The rooms and suites were refreshed incorporating the hotel’s signature Tiffany Blue color with new carpets, soft seating, and coffee tables.
