The lounge serves as a place for dancers to relax as well as the main entertaining space for the American Ballet Theater to host fundraisers and patron events. The new dancer’s lounge is a sun filled white space warmed by cream color upholstery with furnishings and lighting designed by Thomas O’Brien. The wood floors were painted white and topped with the two custom neutral colored rugs with the simple design made of a mixed textured loop and cut pile with semi-worsted wool and Luxe Nylon that adds a luxurious sheen.
