Mandarin Oriental Park, London will unveil the first phase of a far-reaching renovation on 1 August 2017, with the re-opening of the Knightsbridge-facing guest rooms and suites. Following the reveal of a dramatic new lobby entrance and reception area in January, the guest rooms and suites are now more luxurious and comfortable than ever before, encompassing details inspired by the building’s Edwardian heritage and the natural beauty of Hyde Park.
Internationally renowned interior designer, Joyce Wang, commissioned to oversee the design concept, sought inspiration from the royal park, and was influenced by the glamour of the early 20th century’s Golden Age of travel. These include curated artworks and custom-designed furniture that together create a warm and inviting environment in each of the rooms and suites.
Suites have their own individual layout including a spacious and comfortable bedroom, separate walk-in closet and a living area furnished with a velvet-upholstered sofa, wing-back reading chairs and a leather-topped writing desk. Taking inspiration from the nearby park, the living room’s centrepiece is a striking gold and crackled glass bespoke acorn chandelier. Bespoke Fromenthal wallpaper, horsehair light sconces and gloss painted patterns that reference the horse-riding paths through Hyde Park provide the finishing touches. Additionally, Knightsbridge Suites contain a curated library of hand-picked books for guests to enjoy.
