Glass previews a magical festive season at The Upper House, Hong Kong

THE UPPER House, Hong Kong, has been transformed for Christmas with a one-of-a-kind tree, and a vast array of delicious festive treats from in house restaurant, Café Gray Deluxe.

Festive treats from Café Gray Deluxe – Level 6

Continuing their strong commercial partnership with The Upper House, Fiona Barratt Interiors once again contributed a truly unique Christmas tree, eschewing green branches for a sleek, silver and gold interpretation. This year’s tree perfectly reflects The Upper House’s aesthetic, combining sharp modern lines with classicly warm colour palettes, evoking a cosiness that often eludes 21st century design concepts.

Fiona Barrat-Cambell, one of Britain’s preeminent figures in the international interior design world, was on hand to unveil the tree on November 27 as part of the Up Close speaker series.
