Seville, Atlantic, Rotunda and Hampton from Morgan Furniture are among the stylish and original furniture collections to be found at the new four-star InterContinental Hotel in Westminster, London.
Noteworthy as the first InterContinental to open in London for over 36 years, the launch of the hotel in November last year followed an investment of £150m by Shiraz Boghani and Supreme Hotels.
Just a stone’s throw from the Houses of Parliament and within earshot of the chimes of Big Ben, the hotel nestles in its historic surroundings set within Queen Anne’s Chambers, a former Government building dating back to the 1800s.
Behind the 19th century townhouse facade, the elegantly-renovated interior provides sanctuary for business and leisure guests in the heart of Westminster. 256 guest rooms are spread across six floors, and include 45 individually-decorated suites with a separate lounge and bedroom.
Seville 755T easy chairs were provided by Morgan for all the guest bedrooms, along with a matching footstool for added comfort. Both products were adapted to have a slightly raised height, in order to be more visible within the room.
Named after Emmeline Pankhurst, founder of the suffragette movement, Emmeline’s bar creates a genteel setting for cocktails and champagne, while the adjoining Lobby Lounge serves indulgent afternoon teas.
Here, Rotunda 313 tub chairs and the higher-back Rotunda 315 from Morgan provide timeless elegance, upholstered in pale fabric and featuring a diamond-stitch, button-back detail.
The Club InterContinental Lounge provides an exclusive enclave on the first floor of the hotel. The space is available to guests staying in a suite, and can be booked for private meetings.
Atlantic 203au chairs with show-wood detailing and fully-upholstered arms were provided by Morgan as an elegant dining option along with Diva square timber tables.
More Rotunda 313 tub chairs and sofas from Morgan’s popular Hampton collection are grouped around the fireplace in the soft-seating area of the Lounge with scatter cushions to make guests feel right at home.
Atlantic 203au chairs were also supplied as desk chairs for a number of the bedrooms. In order to fulfil the designer’s brief, they were adapted to have a slightly wider and deeper seat and feature fully-upholstered leather arms.
Authentic American smoke house techniques are on hand to satisfy hungry appetites at the Blue Boar Smokehouse & Bar, which serves classic comfort food with a distinctly British twist. Milano 2052 chairs from Morgan provide architectural style and generous comfort for the diners.
Morgan worked closely throughout the project with designer, RPW Design, in order to meet exacting standards and adapt some original collections to meet bespoke requirements.
