The Sir Paul Smith Suite is a stunning combination of custom and vintage furniture, hand-picked artwork, and soft furnishings from Paul Smith’s personal collection. The suite is inspired by Brown’s Hotel’s history as a favourite abode for literary greats, and it provides a haven for rest and relaxation while also encouraging creativity through art and unusual artefacts.
A portrait by Christopher Simon Sykes of the library at Chatsworth House and a leather desk chair by Mario Bellini from the 1970s are just two examples of the varied furniture and art that can be found in Smith’s Covent Garden headquarters and may be seen in the suite. The suite also features the work of Maharam, a design company, alongside Anglepoise (a British lighting company) and DePadova (a luxury furniture manufacturer).
Door knobs in the shape of bananas and fireplace trimmings based on Smith’s dog, a former shopkeeper, are just a couple examples of the suite’s unique, eccentric touches. Also, the suite features a range of plush furnishings from Smith’s home decor collection, as well as rare photographs by Julian Broad, a photographer and close friend of the company.
The room is a reflection of Smith’s classic with a twist’ philosophy, with every detail carefully considered to create a welcoming and comfortable space. The suite is a must-visit for anyone seeking a creatively inspiring stay in London.
