With the Homewings team based in London, we feel very lucky to have access to some of the most exciting restaurant interiors in the world. We wanted to give you five, but as we were building the list, we realised it was too hard to whittle down. So here are 10.. and even that was tricky!
1. Sketch, Mayfair
This is hands down one of our favourite places to stop by. An absolute design mecca, this restaurant is an imaginative and daring centre for both food, art and interiors. We adore the pink room known as “The Gallery” which has been designed by the artist David Shrigley. It is well worth a visit for the egg shaped, futuristic toilets alone.
2. Bourne & Hollingsworth, Clerkenwell
If you’re a fan of white-washed walls, plants and eclectic vintage furniture, let us point you in the direction of the fabulous Bourne & Hollingsworth based in Clerkenwell. The building itself is beautiful, and the light airiness of the space provides the perfect atmosphere for a drawn out Sunday brunch.
3. Ethos, Oxford Circus
Ethos dishes up tasty vegetarian food at a pay by the weight price. What’s eye-catching about the interiors are the beautiful silver birch trees which are dotted around the main areas. It really gives the impression that you’re enjoying your food in nature. The feel is very much in keeping with the premise of the restaurant.
4. Berners Tavern, Oxford circus
This stunning restaurant is the place to go if you want to get the low down on how to create a gallery wall. Just look at all the art! Very impressive! The design is absolutely breathtaking and cleverly balances the heritage of the building with a overall modern and elegant look.
5. The Attendant, Fitzrovia
The attendant is based in a former public bathroom and it just goes to show what you can achieve with a limited amount of space and a maximum amount of clever planning! Definitely worth a stopover to take in the quirk factor!
6. The Wolsley, Piccadilly
Look no further than the Wolseley in central London for pure grandeur. The towering pillars and graceful arches combined with the dramatic flooring will have you dining in style. We particularly love the chandeliers!
7. Beagle, Hoxton
Get in on some hipster, under the railway arches action over at Beagle in Hoxton. The combination of brick work, black steel and mid-century furniture makes for a real treat for those of you taken by industrial interiors.
8. Hoppers, Soho
Immerse yourself in the Colonial Sri Lankan interiors of Hoppers in Soho - if you can get in that is! This hot restaurant takes no bookings and often has queues lining up around the corner for the tasty food. We love the fantastic tiling on the floor and tables and the vintage images hung up on the walls. It’s amazing how these interiors can transport you to another place.
9. Tramshed, Old Street
Tramshed really shows that all you need is one statement piece. In this case, the dramatic high ceilings and large dining space, simple wall finishings and furniture clear the stage for the huge Damien Hirst art work to sit front and centre.
10. Meat Liquor, Marylebone
For an interior truly dedicated to the restaurant concept, we would recommend heading over to Meat Liquor. Meat Liquor’s interiors are bold and brash referencing butchers and factories with it’s rubber floors and stainless steel tables. They do a mean burger, so go hungry!
