Hammocks, bicycles, a croquet lawn, and a pool (with inner tubes): you’ll find all of these at The Graham & Co. in the Catskills. What you won’t find is a TV on the premises.
The Graham & Co. is located just off the main street in Phoenicia, a small village in the Catskill region that’s about a three-hour drive from New York City. The design collective behind the revamped hotel (once a closed motel) is a small group of friends: Bianca Barratini, Jason Gnewikow, Amanda Bupp and Jeff Madalena–who all live in Brooklyn and work in the fashion and design industry in NYC. The team share a common love for the Catskills, and The Graham & Co. is their first collaborative project; they hope to bring their design aesthetics to other off-the-track locations in the future.
