Rich timber and stone have been combined with silk and leather in natural colours to create a comfortable, contemporary environment. This is complemented by carefully selected, hand-crafted furniture finished in classic leathers and elegant, timeless fabrics. Every finish has been carefully chosen for its inviting appearance and texture, grain, pile, and weave, to provide a tactile quality to each surface.
