“It’s charming, beautiful, witty,
friendly, stylish and very cool,”
- London Financial Times

The Charlotte Street Hotel in London is in the centre of an area known
for where the Bloomsbury Group lived. Charlotte researched their style
to create bespoke lamps which would be used for the bar, reception area,
library and bedrooms.

An industrial feel yet retaining the elegance and decoration from the late
Edwardian period with reference to the local Bloomsbury Group.

In keeping with the period of the property.

Hand spun aluminium discs were annodised with different finishers -
old gold, bronze, nickle silver. and a soft ruby pink.
Hand turned wooden bases made from farmed american tulip wood.

Bases stained charcoal and natural beeswax finish.

Some decorated with patterns from the era.

All designs were hand made in the cpd workshops and unique to
the client.
