The project contains more than 500 bespoke pieces all designed and created for this particular application. Incorporating many of its signature design styles, Christopher Guy wanted to provide its own interpretation of elegance, for which Harrods is internationally renowned.
Inspired by the glamour of the 1920s and 1930s, Christopher Guy takes inspiration from the sheer elegance of the era whilst achieving a balance between modernism and classicism. When first introduced to the project, Christopher Guy wanted to utilise its skill and craftsmanship to create something inherently special.
Christopher Guy Harrison, founder of Christopher Guy, comments: “I wanted to pay tribute to one of the last remaining historic sections of Harrods by designing original Christopher Guy furnishings, wall art and mirrors, to achieve a stunning, yet functional interior that would last for many years to come.
“This project in particular has been most special to me. Harrods is the global epicentre when it comes to luxury goods and there is no better showcase for these – and now – no better place for me to have lunch.”
The refurbishment coincides with the opening of the Christopher Guy flagship showroom in The Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour.
