Boutique hotel design is all about personality and individuality. Inspired by the 19th century French château once lived in by Napoleon, the story of Malmaison is about bringing flamboyance and indulgence into the heart of British cities, offering a haven of respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The hotel chain has recently gone through a complete makeover with a new interior that is luxurious, warm and comfortable. Working in close collaboration with interior designers from Curious and hotel procurement consultant NJW Procurement Solutions, Northern Lights was tasked with developing a range of bespoke light fittings including bird cage pendants and conduit ceiling lights.
Eye-catching, elegant and sophisticated, each pendant features a traditional simply shaped metal cage with a cylindrical fabric shade inside.The antique bronze finish complements the eclectic interior of Chez Mal Bar, bringing a subtle hint of shabby chic. The luxury finish of the fabric shade echoes the faux fur soft furnishings throughout the hotel.
Combining a geometric shape and exposed decorative lamps, the conduit ceiling lights inject a contemporary albeit slightly rustic element into both the brasserie and conference room. The gentle glow from the exposed lamps creates intricate patterns on the wall, generating a sense of calm and comfort.
Commenting on the projects, Alex Chivers, FF&E Procurement and Supply Chain Consultant from NJW Procurement Solutions said: 'The fittings look excellent in Malmaison Birmingham. Really well designed and executed to give a real wow factor.'
