East Parlor came about as a way to explore the world of Fiber Arts. Owner Sarah Parys has always felt the need/connection to create with her hands and weaving provided the perfect outlet.

When it opened in 1954, the Fontainebleau was the largest and most luxurious hotel in South Florida. Morris Lapidus, the hotel's architect, included signature features like a 17,000-square-foot lobby with a now legendary staircase to nowhere, six acres of formal gardens designed to replicate Versailles, and antique furnishings to authentically convey the hotel's French period theme. In 2008, the resort completed a $1 billion renovation and expansion. The resort's 1,504 guest rooms include 846 rooms and suites in the original buildings. The 37-story Tresor and 18-story Sorrento, two new luxury all-suite towers located at the south end of the property, have 658 junior, one- and two-bedroom suites.
