Bedrooms

On the first and second floors there are 12 spacious guest bedrooms. The smallest of the rooms is 31 square metres (others are considerably larger) and the four corner rooms benefit from 6 large sash windows. Each of the rooms has a different design that has been inspired by legendary designers or design movements that the owners admire.

All of our rooms and suites are different, although they have been grouped into five main categories - Boundary Rooms, Corner Rooms, Conran Suites, Large Suites and Tang Suite.

Terence Conran on the Charles & Ray Eames Room

This was one of the easiest rooms to do as there is so much Eames material to draw from. The bed head is a reproduction of the graphic images of their famous House of Cards, the sideboard and built in wardrobe reflects the pressed plywood panels in their storage system as do the bath tiles in the Eames bathroom.

Many more objects either designed by Eames such as his wonderful Lounge chair and ottoman in white leather and walnut. One of the most relaxing chairs ever made and his RAR rocking chair and the classic Aluminum group office chair and the charming little LTR wire frame occasional table are included in this special room and to demonstrate the Eames easy and humorous charm the Hang-It-All coat rack with coloured balls. We have used an Anglepoise Type 3 Lamp on the desk which I’m sure Eames would have been proud to have designed. It is a real Eames room in Shoreditch rather than California.

Terence Conran on the Josef Hoffmann Room

The Austrian designer made a major contribution to the Wiener Werkstatt design movement in the 1920s and continued the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh who was much admired in Austria.

Hoffman’s work is elegantly modernist and quite domestic so it seems very suitable for hotel rooms. We have used some of his stylish life drawings for the bed head. The room is dominated by his Purkersdorf arm chair in white lacquer with cushions in a ‘black and white’ Quadratmuster design. We have also used his two seater sofa and his famous Fledermaus chair at the desk and his AD9 nickel plated light on the desk. We have also tried to reflect the Hoffman aesthetic in the special cabinet work by Benchmark – the wardrobe, the sideboard, the blanket box, the desk and the bedside tables and of course the bathroom.

Terence Conran on the Bauhaus Room

This is of course the school that has had the most significant influence on 20th Century design and architecture. I have tried to reflect this by using many of the classic designs that Bauhaus professors and students produced and which are still in production today. These are the MR chrome framed chair with cow hide sling seat, the Laccio low tables, the MR arm chair with black leather seat and back and chrome frame. The Wassily chair, chrome frame and light brown leather seat and back and the beautiful Wagenfeld table lamps on top of the specially designed bedside tables in panels of colour reflecting the Bauhaus colour palette. This has also been carried through onto the design of the sideboard and blanket box. A chrome Duke floor lamp helps light the room.

Terence Conran on the Andrée Putman Room

Andrée is undoubtedly as far as I am concerned, one of the great stars of the European design world. She has an elegantly sophisticate view of life and has understood the style and quality of her French design predecessors. She understands space and how to use it and achieved some considerable praise for her hotel work – Morgans in New York is a notable example.

I tried to reflect her taste with a French engraving of a perfumeries shop enlarged and printed on the head board. She set up a business specializing in the reproduction of notable 20th Century designs such as Pierre Chareau whose Fan table is used in the Putman room as is the floor lamp by Felix Aublet. The Clair De Jour sofa is by Andrée herself.

Terence Conran on the Le Corbusier & Charlotte Perriand Room

Are grouped together as Charlotte worked in Corbusier’s office and took responsibility for the design of much of the furniture usually accredited to Corbusier. Although, it must be said that Corbusier was the inspiration for much of what was achieved by both of them.

We have used some of Corbusier’s drawings for the headboard and Charlotte’s desk chair, a real star in my opinion and very comfortable. The classic two seat sofa we have used with a green painted frame which is how it was originally produced. We also have the LCI armchair with a pony skin seat and back and a chrome frame. For storage we have used the Pinch Frey Armoire with a Bluebird blue exterior and cherry wood interior which seems to fit the Corbusier aesthetic.

Terence Conran on the Heath Robinson Room

To me Heath Robinson is one of the world’s best pre-war cartoonists but he is much more than just cartoons. He made a wonderful and satirical commentary about the Bauhaus style with his hysterical drawings that we have used on the headboard. We have also found some prewar posters of his work and we have furnished the room with the very Bauhaus furniture that he satirized such as the Wassily chair designed by Marcel Breuer and the MR armchair designed by Mies van der Rohe and the Eames Hang-It-All coat rack. The Alba sideboard would also have amused him just imagine what he would do with much modern architecture – Zaha Hadid for instance.

Terence Conran on the Eileen Gray Room

Probably one of the finest and least recognised talents of the 20th Century design. Born and educated in Eire, she developed her skills particularly in lacquer work in Paris and later developed as a very distinguished designer and architect in the 1920s. Her limited repertoire of work is now recognised with one of her armchairs owned by Yves St Laurent selling at auction for £20million. We have used one of her rug designs as the headboard and I am glad to say that several of her furniture designs are still made today so we have been able to use her very comfortable Bibendum chair in white leather, her height adjustable glass top table and her Roquebrune chair designed for her holiday house in the Riviera. We have also used her elegant Tube floor lamp and her adjustable Castellar mirror in the bathroom. This is a room that demonstrates the best of the elegance of the modern movement.

Terence Conran on the Young British Designers Room

Do not get enough exposure but our creativity is admired the world over and plays a vital role in the economics of the UK. The designers involved in this room are Russell Pinch who has made the Marlow Armoire in tinted walnut which houses the mini bar, television and all the room accessories. Sebastian Conran designed the Beep standard lamp and in particular there is an amazing tiled mural in the bathroom by Dominic Crinson a real work of art.

Room details:

Terence Conran on the Scandinavian Room

Scandinavian design has been extremely influential on post war design the world over so it seemed essential that it should be reflected in our hotel rooms. It is also very peaceful which is an ideal image for hotel rooms. We have used the Finn Juhl designed Poeten two seat sofa, the Arne Jacobsen Egg chair upholstered in fabric makes a really good bedroom chair.

The elegant folding stainless steel stool designed by Poul Kjærholm, the bed head is covered in Marimekko’s blue poppy design fabric and dominates the room and makes it feel very Scandinavian and cheerful. The reissued Jacobsen white Lily chair is used at the desk.

Terence Conran on the Shaker Room

The Shakers in America were Quakers and had an austere vision of domestic decoration. I have tried to reflect this with reproductions of some of their original furniture with the addition of some contemporary furniture by Ercol which seems to reflect the same simplicity that the Shakers sought to achieve in their interiors. We have added Shaker wall pegs in the entrance area and the bathroom so there is always a place to hang up your clothes to preserve an aura for well managed simplicity. A very calm and unpretentious room but slightly more charming than austere minimalism.

Terence Conran on the Mies Van Der Rohe Room

The classic modernist architect of the 20th Century who believed like many architects of his Bauhaus generation that the interior of his buildings were just as important as the exterior and so designed many items of furniture and other interior products.

We have used a picture of his famous Seagram building in New York at night as the headboard. His comfortable Barcelona chair and ottoman take pride of place and his MR side chair is perfect for the desk. We have used a rich walnut burr veneer for the glamorous cupboards which relate to his dramatic apartments in Lake Drive, Chicago. The sideboard holding the mini bar and as a base for the television and audio equipment is in a shiny black lacquer with Carrara marble top. An elegant and rather masculine room.

Room details:
Corner Room, 2nd floor, 36.5 sqm,
bath & shower.
