Hotels & Lodging: Thunderbird Hotel in Marfa

Issue 30 · Into the Woods · July 28, 2010

Ever since iconic minimalist sculptor/furniture artist Donald Judd decamped to Marfa, Texas, the place has exuded an under-the-radar art world cool. So it's not a surprise to find some of the hippest lodging anywhere here, a classic midcentury roadside hotel overhauled by Lake/Flato Architects in 2005, outfitted with custom-made furniture by local designer Jamey Garza, industrial lights from Jielde, Peruvian Frasada blankets, and Indian cotton sheets. For more information, go to the Thunderbird Hotel.
