The 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel London is a part of Hilton’s Curio Collection which is a collection of unique hotels that offer travelers a one-of-a-kind experience. When it comes to the design of the hotel, every detail has been carefully considered and no expense has been spared. The same can be said for the lighting fixtures from Aerin Lighting UK, Alexa Hampton and Thomas O’Brien that were used throughout the property, held within the Visual Comfort ranges.

The Hampton Large Chandelier

The public spaces within a hotel can often be large and sprawling, so the challenge is to create interior spaces that create defined more intimate areas for waiting and relaxing in.

The Hampton chandelier from the Aerin Lighting UK range was used to great effect in the library of 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel, creating more intimate seating areas within the large space sitting central to facing seating. The traditional form of the chandelier is given a modern twist with its sleek lines and gild finish.

AERIN has translated the traditional acanthus leaf shape into a design that embodies the classicly modern. This shpae and style will fit into the genres of traditional, classical, modern and even whimiscal.

If left to be the centre piece of a space and given a complimentary backdrop, as seen here with the teal coloured walls, like all good feature lighting it lifts the space whilst delivering useful uplighting that provides reflected diffused illumination into the room.

The Robinson Medium Pendant

The public spaces within a large hotel’s restaurant with a high number of covers can also be large and sprawling, so the challenge is again to create interior spaces that create defined more intimate areas for dining in. One method of doing this is to define a space by repetitive ceiling lighting.

The Robinson Medium Pendant in Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass from the Thomas O’Brien UK range from the Visual Comfort stable, was used in repetition over tables within the restaurant. This medium-sized glass and brass pendant have a contemporary line whilst keeping a modern classic aesthetic with the restrained use of detail and brass finish.

Another lighting technique to help divide up large public spaces is to subdivide ceilings into smaller parts, some of them as raised-up coffers, lit around the edges, and finished off with a central lighting fixture.

The Randolph large flush mount in a hand-rubbed antique brass finish and glass rods does just this. This flush mount has a strong traditional form with an ornate brass finish and glass rods.

The Randolph flush mount is a useful ceiling light because:

The Randolph large flush mount is a great choice for anyone looking for an elegant and stylish flush mount. It is also very well made and will last for many years with proper care. With all of these factors considered, it is easy to see why the Randolph large flush mount is such a popular choice among homeowners.
