Updated 'Bentley Room' at Mosimann's private dining club
Having stepped out of the luxury and comfort of a motor car graced with a 'flying B', an owner may feel a little less than well-looked-after in a regular restaurant. That could never happen in the recently updated 'Bentley Room' at Mosimann's private dining club in London.
Designed by Caulder Moore – who also created the Bentley Living Room at the firm’s headquarters in Crewe – the room's new look includes a new dining room table and wall unit by Matthew Collins furniture. The former is finished in veneers which echo those used in the flagship Mulsanne saloon.
The majestic centrepiece is surrounded by a fleet of green leather dining chairs, in the style of a 1920s Bentley's seats.
It’s not only the furniture which pays tribute to Bentley history, ancient and modern, it's also the detailing. The walls are decorated with photographs of moments in the company's racing history, while the pendant lightshade is illustrated with sketches portraying the timeline of Bentley. Not even the door-handle escapes the latest treatmen, its knurled detailing being inspired by the gearknob and switches from current road cars. The mirror and door panel use Burnt Oak Bentley hide with Shortbread stitching.
“Bentley is at the heart of Mosimann’s and the room reflects what members enjoy about their private dining club in Belgravia,” said Mosimann's Managing Director Mark Mosimann. “It is warm, cosseted and positively oozes with charm.”
The Bentley Room at Mosimann’s has seating for 14, with standing room for 28. Mosimann’s is situated in the heart of Belgravia, within a converted Scottish Presbyterian Church. For more details, visit the Mosimann website.
