The Mayfair restaurant in London has commissioned four leading florists to create a gorgeous botanical installation that celebrates the British countryside and reference the ongoing Chelsea Flower Show. The designers used birch, roses, foxgloves and lilies to form different, fairytale-like spaces under one roof.
The Flower Appreciation Society decorated the entrance to the restaurant, designed by James Wyatt in 1779, creating a beautiful passage leading visitors to the reception area. Once they reach the restaurant’s gallery dining room via a staircase decorated with roses and various flowers, visitors can enjoy an area filled with vintage furniture designed by Martin Creed, featuring a wall lined with sketches by artist David Shringley.
London florist JamJar introduced a large floral canopy to the Champagne Pommery Lounge, while Carly Rogers Flowers transformed the passage from the stairs to the toilets into a woodland garden. The four installations work together to create a surreal experience, while keeping their own unique atmospheres.
“I feel all four installations work independently and are so magical that you forget the space they’re in,” said Mourad Mazouz, the restaurant’s founder and owner. “At the same time, the gardens only exist because of the room they are in. If you think with this project that each room is a landscape, the installations by all four florists explore their relationship with the building,” he added.
