Philadelphia is experiencing a renaissance as a top tourist destination. The first World Heritage City within the United States, it boasts a rich history, a host of cultural sites and a new wave of beautifully conceived boutique hotels offering modern convenience and old-world charm.

A Lema showroom is located on the ground floor and each of the residences above has been fitted out entirely with Lema furniture. Raw plasterwork and original warehouse windows are complemented by sleek lines and contemporary design.
