The Rabot Estate

The new Rabot Estate café start-up in Borough Market promises to do for Cacao what successful sister company, Hotel Chocolat did for, well, chocolate! Visitors to Borough will find a stripped interior recreating the brand’s St Lucia plantation right in the heart of SE1. Terry Moore Design has employed reclaimed materials including naturally weathered wood, vintage corrugated iron and handwritten manila labels and there’s an ingenious trompe l’oeuil window featuring views of the estate projected onto a whitewashed wall. The Rabot Estate takes its name from Saint Lucia’s oldest cocoa estate dating back to 1745 and was bought five years […]

150 years of Chopard

Chopard is celebrating 150 years and to celebrate they have designed a selection of unique animal-inspired pieces- their largest and most diverse collection devoted to a single theme. Noah’s Ark never looked this good.  Apparently the pieces required 20,000 hours of work and involved setting 250,000 stones. “I really wanted to make them like sculptures,”  Chopard co-president and artistic director Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele told WWD of the pieces. “If people want to buy one, they will have to reserve it and get it at the end of November.” With that amount of time spent on them, we suspect they ‘aint’ going […]

A Room with a View

Like we needed another reason to up sticks and decamp to Hollywood but it was only a matter of time before the Soho House empire set up shop in La La land. Hollywood and LA attract seekers of fame and fortune like moths to a flame but while some aspiring stars are eclipsed by the bright lights and fizzle out into oblivion, the real leading lights are galvanized by their new realm and inspired to burn all the brighter. So to Soho House’s West Hollywood crib. Located in a stunning two floor penthouse suite high above the west end of […]

Erwin Olaf

“A picture paints a thousand words”; yet magnificent pictures, can often render the most articulate speechless. Futhermore, artists themselves are sometimes unable to verbalise the meaning of their work, preferring to let it speak for itself and let the viewer/reader decide its significance. Photographer, Erwin Olaf is one such character. Speaking about his second solo exhibition at Hamiltons ‘Dawn & Dusk’, Olaf exclaims; “I am finally realising what I am saying. Not that I can say in words exactly what this is, but I know it. The best is when it remains a question mark.” The exhibition features models posing […]

Laurent-Perrier Garden

Don’t forget to visit the Laurent-Perrier Garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, designed by award winning Tom Stuart-Smith. Tom has designed a modern garden of subtle and varying texture that is both completely modern and intensely romantic. We’ve done a little research and it sounds incredible. As its centrepiece, it features an elegant bronze Pavilion, designed by award winning architect Jamie Fobert (www.jamiefobertarchitects.com) and constructed from folded sheets of patinated copper. The sculpture of the Pavilion contrasts with the purity and naturalism of its surroundings – an elongated pool of water, richly textural natural stone, curving pathways and vibrant […]
