The brief from the client was simple; they wanted a '21st Century Grand Hotel’.
All Bespoke Lighting for Suites
These new suites are the first product enhancement at the property since its opening seven years ago. They complement the existing suites and seven penthouses that already evoke an elegant residential style, with expansive outside terraces complete with exceptional and previously unseen views across the capital.
Interior Design firm GA Design was appointed to create the new ‘London’ and ‘Garden’ Suites in one of London’s finest Hotels. The brief from the client was simple; they wanted a 21st Century’ Grand Hotel’. GA Design worked hard to create spaces that feel homely, refined, understated and elegant. The new suites are grand in design, using luxurious textiles, bespoke lighting, butter-soft leathers and beautifully crafted woods.
The London Suite is inspired by a day in the capital; the light, the fresh interior pays homage to modern living, with contemporary amenities and state-of-the-art facilities.
The mid-century modern bespoke chandeliers that we supplied to the suites were all designed to suit each room and space. Antique brass fittings with arms spearing off a central brass body at varying angles were softened by organic free-blown transparent spheres which were framed by a decorative “halo” ring detail. These became the bespoke lighting statement pieces in each room.
Stunning oversized glass custom table lamps bookend the sofas. Hand made from brass and hand-blown glass in the shape of an elongated cloche. These impressive mid-century modern lamps are both imposing and elegant. Meticulously worked by our team of skilled artisans; they have a real presence in the room — the silk shade specified by Laura ties in beautifully with the other elements of her scheme.
We worked on a diverse number of designs, including beautiful mid-century modern glass bedside lamps. These were made up of thick pieces of glass, cut, polished, frosted and finally set in a cross formation. Offset by intricately detailed brass elements they are finished with a silk shade and satin glass diffuser further adorned with a decorative finial to the top.
The Garden Suite is designed with a nod to the quintessential British garden and overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Accents of verdant green, in soft furnishings and live planting, create a tranquil setting.
Numerous bespoke brass wall lights were created for the garden suites, finished in antique brass and silk shades. Large silk drums were used as a central pendant to many rooms. These were custom designed to sit flush to the ceiling and with a very soft light source creating a warm and inviting ambience.
We are honoured to have worked on this project with GA Design and to have delivered bespoke lighting that meets the quality of design and detailing required for an iconic hotel.
