Paper Factory Hotel, Long Island City Wedding Venue: As a homage to the space’s blue-collar heritage, the Queens hotel was designed using as much of the original repurposed material as possible. The foyers and rooms are eclectic and quirky, often incorporating the space’s original elements such as the polished concrete floors or reclaimed materials. Vintage hammered metal doors, expansive factory windows, and exposed pipes seamlessly mesh with modern art and sleek light fixtures. Charmingly rustic furnishings and stylish yet comfy furniture soften up the spaces, while lofty 12-foot ceilings give the 122 rooms and suites a bright, airy feel. Oversized windows allowed more natural light into the factory (for good wedding photography today) and high ceilings ventilated the space for workers during their 12-hour shifts.
