Suites

On the third and fourth floor there are 4 duplex suites designed by Sir Terence Conran, Lady Conran, Priscilla Carluccio and Benchmark. A further double-width suite has been designed by Sir David Tang.

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 theModern Italian suite by Priscilla Carluccio

A very simple fresh and modern room and mezzanine bedroom. The room is dominated by the free form of the red Koochy sofa which immediately makes it feel very comfortable. The Paola Navone Ghost chair and armchair with their loose white covers give the room an easy feel. When the angular formality of the Quadrant table and the Nihau chairs make you feel that this is a place to get down to work and have decisive business meetings. The place is lit by Ingo Maurer’s desk lamps and the charming Zettel pendant lamp. The mezzanine bedroom and bathroom clad in carrara marble are comfortable and very relaxing. Just the place to be after a hard day’s work in the main room below.

Suite details: 52sqm, duplex, corner room, bath & shower.

Founded by Terence Conran and Sean Sutcliffe, Benchmark are based in converted farm buildings in the grounds of Terence’s country home in Berkshire. Each piece is designed and made with thought and care by skilled craftsmen. Their love of making in combination with the best quality natural and sustainable materials results in a light and restful space that is good for the soul.

The attention to detail and rarity of the furnishings in the living and bedrooms and bathroom make this a very special place to stay and to entertain.

Terence Conran on theBeach suite by Vicki Conran

Unlike many of the rooms, this low concept room has no design pedigree; it has, I hope, a rather informal, relaxed appeal. I thought a whimsical touch of the seashore would be a quirky counterpoint to the urban grittiness that is Shoreditch. With a palette of blues and chalky whites, together with Lloyd Loom, sea grass, canvas and cotton, the room has an airiness that maximizes the lofty double height aspect.

The framed prints in the bathroom are from a rather racy French magazine, La Vie Parisienne, wistful reminders of stolen moments on the beach at Deauville and Le Touquet. Upstairs the comfortable bed is covered with an antique white cotton appliqué quilt. On the wall is a serene still life, a wave breaking on a sandy beach by Dawn Reader “I aim to capture a poignant moment, a distant memory, a sense of peace and freedom in the seascapes I paint” is what she says of her work.

Suite details: 43.5sqm, duplex, bath & shower.
