Morgan Furniture, the design-led British manufacturer of contract furniture, has created a handsome line-up of eye-catching and comfortable seating for one of London’s hottest new hotels, The Arch.Located in a tranquil street near Marble Arch and completed in December 2009, this trend-setting boutique hotel comprises seven Georgian town houses and two mews homes which have been sympathetically amalgamated to form what is described as ‘London’s most intriguing luxury hotel.’
Armchairs, footstools and conference seating from three key collections designed by Morgan Design Director, Katerina Zachariades, were specified for the 82 beautifully and individually furnished rooms plus communal areas, including the library and meeting room. Furniture pieces include a bespoke version of the Seville armchair which Morgan created with modifications to the back height and filling in the seat cushion in order to meet the exacting specifications of the design team. Seville was introduced in 2009 and is a modern take on a traditional armchair, making it a perfect match for The Arch which also combines contemporary luxury with classic features from within the Georgian building. The easy style and options of an armless lounge chair and a winged armchair make Seville a versatile choice; with both models characterised by a modest footprint and available with attractive detailing such as nail trim, contrast piping or buttoned back to enhance the design.
Gracing many of the bedroom suites at The Arch, Siena from Morgan is one of the company’s most versatile ranges. The choice of two sizes of tubs chair, desk chair, daybed, footstool and bench, all featuring soft contemporary lines, compact footprints, comfortable backs and seat cushions make the range ideal for achieving luxurious co-ordinated solutions.
The organically styled Chevy chair from Morgan is available in three variants, either with wooden legs, a chrome swivel base, or in the case of the meeting room at The Arch, with a chrome cantilever base. Made from solid beech and upholstered in soft leather, the Chevy provides the perfect mix of function and contemporary form for a prestigious meeting room environment.
The fabric choices in vibrant colours, bold stripes and tactile textures accentuate the elegant lines of every Morgan chair making them stand-out as key design pieces within the room. Each chair invites the guest to relax and forms an intrinsic part of the overall interior design scheme of The Arch which aims to offer the ultimate fusion of style and comfort.
Morgan was commissioned by client AB Hotels based at Sopwell House Hotel in St Albans and also worked closely throughout the project with London based interior designers RDD Plc.
