    As part of a complete multi-million pound restoration of The Grosvenor Hotel, part of the Guoman Hotels collection, a magnificent crystal basket chandelier from Chelsom takes centre stage; an elegant addition to this spectacular listed interior dating back to 1862. Suspended from a silk covered chain within the vast entrance void, the chandelier has an overall drop of 8 metres, comprising over 300 individual strands of Egyptian crystal secured onto a slim metalwork structure finished in French Gold. Lit from within by sixty-five E14 LED lamps, the fitting adds sparkle and glamour to the reception area whilst subtly highlighting the restored ornate plasterwork and rich marble columns with gold leaf capitals.

    Initially created as the first of London’s great railway hotels, The Grosvenor Hotel was a stunning example of Victorian architecture and opulence. Under the careful guidance of English Heritage the restoration, along with the new interior specification by ADS Design, has ensured that this spectacular 4 star, 346 guestroom hotel meets the client’s intention “to skilfully blend the ambition and confidence of a bygone age with the comforts and technology of today”
