Once a haven for London’s social elite, the old world style of the gentlemans club has seen a welcome revival in recent times with classic accents and traditional materials blending seamlessly with contemporary interior design. This Father’s Day, create a sophisticated space for the gentleman in your life and invest in key interiors pieces that encapsulate the heritage and refined opulence of this very British institution.
The Home Bar
Replicate the experience of an exclusive and intimate gentlemans club with a dedicated bar space. Shaken or stirred, a well stocked bar cart will make any man feel like James Bond- opt for a vintage cart in a distressed leather finish, replete with a bottle or two of his favourite spirit.
Achieve the ultimate gentlemans club feel by acquiring a few bespoke or vintage accent pieces to add character to modern spaces. A old framed map or antique globe are reminiscent of the style typical of the colonial era. For something a little more nostalgic, frame his favourite old photo in a silver frame with a simple, masculine style.
There is nothing quite like the feel of a well worn book. This Father’s Day, add a personal touch to your space and invest in hardback or leather bound editions of his favourite books.
Balance the masculine aesthetic of your room with carefully chosen plush textiles. Pelt, hide and fur textiles work well in feminine and masculine interiors and are the easiest way to add luxury and warmth to any room. Our sumptuous mohair throws in cream or slate grey are the ideal Father’s Day gifts – best draped over his favourite chair. Introduce colour and texture with a selection of throw cushions in jewel blues and soft greys.
Luxurious seating- expertly upholstered in rich materials like leather and velvet- is the ultimate gentlemans club staple. The leather wing chair and the deep-seated fireside chair were the original club chairs, often designed with generous buttoning for style and comfort. Perhaps most recognisable of the original club sofas is the Chesterfield- a timeless piece to suit traditional and contemporary interiors alike.
