Shanghai Elegance

Today livingExclusive travels to Hotel Indigo for a small taste of Shanghai elegance.

This 180-room boutique hotel situated on the Bund features striking interior design by Hirsch Bedner Associates.

Indigo's design is about connecting the space to its historically and culturally rich surroundings – fusing the ancient with the modern. The result is fresh, contemporary, inspired space; one that respects Shanghai’s past, yet leads the way into a design future.
