The Ho-O-Kan Rooms located on the 1st floor makes an enchanting statement, raising guest expectations to new heights. The split-level, double height venue features a traditional, wood beamed ceiling and loft space with wrap-around gallery displaying a unique collection of fine antiques, artwork and decorative artifacts. A dramatic black and ivory color scheme in this Asian-inspired venue is completed by hand-painted lanterns with filigree carving, emerald-tone crystals and silk tassels filtering the light to cast a romantic glow on the impressive room. The floors are of European carpeting with a graphic medallion motif. A rich textured wall covering at the grand focal wall is a trio of specially commissioned, exquisitely hand painted panels by DeGournay.
Rendered in their signature Chinoiserie style on delicate gold leaf paper, the nine foot high, gilt framed DeGournay pieces depict colorful birds in an exotic setting, providing the perfect backdrop for the magnificent red lacquered and gold leafed Amitabha Buddha who meditatively presides over the room from his lotus blossom pedestal. The eight foot bronzed dragon is a fine example of bronzed Eastern dragon work symbolizing wealth, wisdom and prosperity. The Ho-O- Kan provides a truly inspiring setting for intimate banquets and cocktail receptions with 40 to 60 guests.
