The Bentley Room at Mosimann’s, the renowned private London dining club in the heart of Belgravia, and situated within a converted Scottish Presbyterian Church, has been updated with a new dash of Bentley décor and detailing.
A calming colour scheme of neutrals with accent details of racing green and purple silk evokes a contemporaneous sense of the racing marque’s illustrious history as well as its contemporary design flair.
Mark Mosimann, Managing Director, Mosimann’s, comments: “We are delighted that Bentley will have a new room at Mosimann’s; it is a relationship that has been established over nearly a decade and the synergy between the two Royal Warrant Holding organisations is based on achieving perfection in all the finest details.
“Bentley is at the heart of Mosimann’s and the room reflects what members enjoy about their private dining club in Belgravia. It is warm, cosseted and positively oozes with charm.”
The splendid room, an inimitably British blend of style and tradition, reflects an innovative and fresh aspect of the Bentley brand, combined with unique Bentley accents reflecting the individual essence of the world’s leading luxury carmaker.
Seating 14, with standing room for 28, the room was designed by Caulder Moore, which also designed the Bentley Living Room at the company’s headquarters in Crewe, in 2010.
The walls are decorated with wonderful photographs of great racing moments and Bentleys old and new, to include a mixture of current and heritage imagery together with original art from the styling team based in Crewe.
The update features a new table and wall unit made by Matthew Collins Furniture, chosen for its high quality furniture, and originally a company founded by the Prince’s Trust, one of Bentley’s chosen charities. The centrepiece table is surrounded by classic green leather dining chairs, each seat handcrafted along the original designs for a 1926 Bentley. The table is finished in Bentley burr oak, burr walnut, and stained burr walnut veneers with picture framing marquetry to echo veneers used in the flagship Mulsanne model.
In addition to the new table, the room boasts an array of accents and accessories designed to reflect Bentley’s passion for craft and quality. A new wall unit employs dark stained burr walnut veneer with Mulsanne handles for drawers and Bentley leather lined shelves (shortbread hide) to echo details on the flagship four-door saloon.
The new mirror is finished in Burnt Oak Bentley hide with shortbread stitching; the door panel panel is finished in Burnt Oak Bentley hide with shortbread stitching, with Bentley logo embroidery to echo the personalisation of the model.
The door handle has been made at Crewe with Bentley knurling detail to echo the gear knob and switches; while the Pendant light encompasses sketches depicting Bentley’s coupé and four-door heritage from the earliest Bentleys to the new Continental GT and Mulsanne.
