The Pimp Room

Okay, seriously, let's say you are designing a corporate hotel and have to come up with a design scheme. Dark leather sofas? Neutral colors? Non-threatening art work? Boring ass lounge area with beer nuts and wood paneling? Well, if you are the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel in Iselin, NJ, you might actually decide to go with a funky 70s-inspired bizarre mix of weirdness that includes giant chessboards, 6 foot long red beaded chandeliers, white fuzzy chairs sized for Vikings, and of course, a pimp room. Yes folks, didn't you know that corporate America has been jonesing for a lounge with a disco ball, lava lamps, sequined walls, leopard skin throw pillows and of course love bead curtains. Let's just say the decor at the Woodbridge Hotel, site for the New Jersey RWA conference this past weekend, was....well....extremely unique. Extremely. Unique. And I've got the photos to prove it....

Here is the disco ball:





Here is the lava lamp:




Here we are lounging in the pimp room:

Penny. Love the pics. Sorry we didn't chat in NJ. Megan and I had to take a pic here too. I called it the faux Soho lounge.

Hi Kwana! Faux Soho lounge is a good description. How weird was that hotel?

OMG! Nobody told me I missed a pimp room!!

Dalton, If you're lucky the hotel won't decide to upgrade to the eighties for several years and you can see the lounge yourself.

I dubbed this the Elvis Sex Room as I could just see him having something like this at Graceland.
