La MaisonThe Internet
Discovering the brands behind the objects that inhabit your favourite hotel and restaurant has taken us on a magical journey from Malawi to New-York, from Marrakech to London; And there was no way we could leave our best discoveries behind: Welcome to La Maison.
Café de la SemainePigalle, Paris
A creative, whimsical café, Café de la Semaine is the brainchild of British artist Luke Edward Hall and online magazine Semaine. There’s a nostalgic, dreamy look to the café’s decor – with a Parisian twist, obviously. And while the serveware and art’s modern, the classic pink meets dark wood design creates a feminine take on the traditionally masculine flâneur aesthetic.
This London-based, avocado-heavy dining concept has a lush look – its interior decor is inspired by California. Think green tones, light wood, and pretty, floral-print accessories. The result is a laid-back, delicate design, where the pink plates and patterned cushions are as appealing as the avocado dishes served.
Frenchie Covent GardenLondon, UK
Celebrated chef Gregory Marchand is well-travelled – and it shows in the decor of his Covent Garden restaurant: Frenchie. As the name suggests, there’s more than a hint of Parisian charm, but alongside the no-fuss styling of London, and the urban grit of New York. Think modern, minimal and muted.
Hotel AmericanoNew York City, US
Mid-century decor meets modern minimalism in ultra-chic Hôtel Americano, a boutique hotel in Manhattan’s Chelsea. This area’s known for its art and gallery scene, and inside, Hôtel Americano is equally cultured in its style. Latin, Japanese, and mid-century American influences mean that warm woods, black grass and concrete are common among the hotel’s 56 rooms.
108 GarageLondon, UK
Industrial interior style meets fantasy styling in 108 Garage, a hip restaurant serving fusion cuisine in London. As the name suggests, the space is a converted garage – evident from the exposed bricks and concrete floor. And furnishings crafted from metal, wood and leather are brightened by bold artworks and one-of-a-kind accessories.
