Samuel Heath’s Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers have been used by the Rocco Forte group to retain the high-end aesthetics of rooms and suites at Brown’s Hotel, one of London’s most elegant boutique residences.
Opened in 1837, Brown’s Hotel is made of eleven Georgian houses on Albermarle Street in the heart of London’s exclusive Mayfair. Famed for its decorative style and impeccable service, the hotel has been home to presidents, prime ministers, royalty and writers, with Rudyard Kipling among its most famous guests.
The suite comprises an impressive living area, two bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms and large walk-in wardrobe, providing guests with the ultimate in comfort and luxury. Access to the suite is via a double-door entrance which leads onto a central foyer, connecting the lounge and bedrooms.
Led by Olga Polizzi, director of design at Rocco Forte Hotels, The Kipling Suite renovation took three months to complete. It makes extensive use of English wallpapers, fabrics and furnishings to deliver a contemporary feel whilst remaining true to the hotel’s heritage and the era of Kipling.
Commenting on the project, Ms Polizzi says, “We designed the Kipling so that you can feel you are in London. This will be a grand classical suite of great comfort, with a combination of antique pieces and contemporary designer items. The English theme carries on and is maintained, as in all our rooms at Brown's Hotel, with English wallpaper, fabrics, colours and objects.”
