Boodles, Sloane Street
‘The Garden Room’ is born out of Boodles relationship with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, having in ’21 showcased their ‘Secret Garden’ inspired by the Francis Hodgson Burnett timeless novel of the same name, and a collection
of exquisite jewellery dedicated to the cinematic adaptation. The Garden Room takes its design inspiration from these, and a ‘journey to an enchanted sanctuary’.
Of particular noteworthiness, one of the key features in the space is an extensive oak screen, as a wall finish and sub-division between dining room and bar room. Made from an oak tree that was felled as part of a major UK civil engineering project, it was salvaged and given new meaning by Boodles, through Tom Hoblyn Garden designer and sculpted by Jan Hendzel (for Boodles Secret Garden at Chelsea Flower Show in ‘21). Now entering its ‘third life’, only a few miles from where it was first planted and believed to be 300 years old, complete with a musket shot in one section. The stories it could tell…
The rawness and beauty of the natural oak is juxtaposed with bespoke hand-painted floral wallpaper and sourced furniture supporting UK artisan craft workshops. The designed bar includes a glass-topped jewellery showcase, to tempt guests to adorn themselves with pieces from the Boodles jewellery collection.
This new space builds on Boodles reputation for craftmanship, design, passion for jewellery, and creating lasting memories and legacies, all sustainably considered.
