PHOTOS: Recently Installed Tomorrowland Art Removed, New Furniture Arrives at Remodeled Lobby of Disney’s Contemporary Resort
It’s been less than two months since the Contemporary resort debuted a newly reimagined lobby featuring the art of Mary Blair. Now the space is seeing changes to the furniture and art work.
In the seating area across from the bell services desk, the wall mural featuring the Monorail traveling through the resort is still there. Some of the furniture is different.
The chairs in this area have been switched out. The new chairs are white with a red cloth section on the back support. They appear to be faux-leather.
The tables have not changed.
There are also several red cloth chairs here. These chairs have a thin pillow that sits in the lower back support portion.
This is a photo from September showing the previous furniture.
Around the corner is another small seating area. A photo of Mary Blair with her Contemporary Resort mural hangs on the wall, surrounded by more of her artwork, including the art that would’ve been found in guest rooms back in 1971.
The furniture in this area is mostly unchanged except for these kid’s chairs.
Previously, the chairs in this spot looked more like little stools. The new chairs are the same color, but have some back support.
These chairs are set up in front of a TV showing classic Mickey Mouse cartoons.
New softer chairs have replaced the wood versions in Contemporary Grounds, the resort’s Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company.
The old chairs were all wood, with a blue seat cushion. The new chairs have a red seat cushion with a red and white back support.
Changes have also been made in these two small seating areas.
In this spot, a white marble top table has replaced the wood table.
These cane back chairs have replaced the old chairs. The new chairs have a lower back support, but a thicker seat cushion.
The Tomorrowland concept art for Disneyland no longer hangs behind the table. Instead, there are three pieces showing images of what the resort may have looked like in 1971.
The chairs in this seating area have also been swapped out.
These blue cloth chairs have replaced brown leather ones that were there previously.
These green cane back chairs now sit where burnt orange chairs were once found.
The art work on the wall in this seating area has not changed.
