T
he next chapter. A postcard home.
In all its guises, the written word
is celebrated here. Anyone who can
write... anything... will be inspired by
its comfortable charm.
Not surprisingly, the desk occupies a premier position within the
library-like lounge. Custom-designed and crafted from dark walnut,
the two-metre-long writing table features nickel metalwork details
to the underside and high-quality leather inlay to the desktop.
Around the walls, over a thousand books add to the literary
ambiance, complemented by artwork featuring handwritten letters.
Notwithstanding the wordy allusions, this penthouse suite is not
a mere writer’s den but a stylish, sophisticated London residence.
Any discerning guest will warm to its discreet luxury and easy-going
opulence, as evidenced by the bespoke Makassar ebony cocktail
cabinet. A triumph of understated urbanity, it features mirrored
pullout trays, leather-lined drawers and a fold-down cocktail-making
area. Other elegant touches include a limestone fireplace, antique
writing bureau and unique side table with a mirror-like cast resin
top. Upstairs, linked by a private internal lift, the king-size bed,
bespoke bedside cabinets and bathroom of Fior di Bosco marble
extend the theme of quiet, sumptuous comfort.
