The Finer Points: wynn is in The details
The whole may be greater than the sum of its parts—but what parts!

1. golden touch: Wynn’s designers opted for handmade gold wallcoverings over gold leaf to give the quatrefoil ceiling detail in the Salon Suite Living Room its warm, opulent tone and eliminate reflections of the light source. 2. please enter: Koi fish tiebacks at the entrance of Wing Lei Palace were sketched in-house at Wynn Design & Development, then sculpted by Dreamcatchers in Hong Kong. Draperies were hand-embroidered and peacock feathers hand overlain. The glimmering capiz shell wall is lain in a fishscale pattern, and layered with capiz floral motifs. 3. what’s up: The chandelier at Wing Lei Bar is a rare antique Italian rock crystal piece reminiscent of Louis XV designs. It’s left unwired and reflects ambient lighting. 4. we’ve got your back: The green and gold custom designs of each chairback in Wing Lei Palace were designed in-house and meticulously hand-embroidered.
Inside secrets: In Pacific Cigar, a series of secret doors conceals humidor rooms and invitation-only lounge areas.
5. curves ahead: The curved metal and glass entrance to Pacific Cigar is inspired by one of Manhattan’s most prestigious entryways—the ladies’ shop at Bergdorf Goodman and its pilasters, itself inspired by the great council chambers of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice. Secret doors within cleverly conceal invitationonly lounge areas and humidors. 6. light fantastic: One of the great pieces of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton inspired this custom chandelier that graces the Garden and Penthouse villas, also taking cues from 1920s Art Deco. The original design’s individual petals are metal framed and hand strung with rows of crystal beads. 7. wall power: The design of a wall in Mizumi’s Private Dining Rooms is based on Japanese Tansu chests— traditional mobile storage chests for highly prized items—each one intricately fitted into the next. 8. prosaic mosaic: A hand-cut Italian mosaic rosette on the front of a bathtub in a Salon Suite conceals an access panel to the bath, beautifully in keeping with the Wynn ethos of pairing functionality with elegance.
