    Morgan Furniture, the design-led British manufacturer of contract furniture, has designed and supplied a range of soft seating for the new Mirror Bar within London’s Landmark Hotel. Described by the hotel as a ‘jewel box of a bar’ the sumptuous interior is a nod to the hotel’s Victorian heritage, with the walls adorned in a range of decorative mirrors and the service style intimate. With direct access from the street, the existing hotel bar area was refurbished and re-incarnated as the Mirror Bar in summer 2011 designed to provide a tranquil destination for pre-dinner cocktails or a late night drink. Classic luxury is ensured by the furniture from Morgan featuring bespoke elements and finely tuned detailing to achieve a comfortable, big chair feel which also meets the requirement for seating numbers within the bar.

    Hampton armchairs are a dominant design from Morgan with their classic profile and buttoned cushions. A bespoke Hampton two seater sofa was created especially for the project by Design Director, Katerina Zachariades. Rotunda lounge chairs, in a mix of low and high back options, are also prominent throughout the bar providing elegance and comfort with classic deep buttoning detail and rich velvet upholstery.

    Seville wing chairs complete the picture with their contemporary twist on a traditional design. The distinctive shape to the back and long sweeping curve on the arms is reminiscent of a vintage style and the invitation to sit back and relax is further enhanced by the addition of scatter cushions.

    Morgan was commissioned by London-based design consultancy Proof.
