Eat, sleep and live design at London’s Boundary Hotel

Editorial Staff Furniture & Decorative Arts

Have you ever dreamed about spending a night inside the Eames Case Study House or a Charlotte Perriand-designed boudoir? The Boundary Hotel, which opened this past January in East London’s Shoreditch neighborhood lets visitors do just that. Designed under the direction of Terence Conran and his studio, Conran & Partners, the Boundary was transformed from a Victorian-era warehouse into a boutique hotel with seventeen guest bedrooms, three restaurants (including one on the roof), a bakery, and specialty grocery store. Each of the hotel’s rooms has been inspired by a particular designer or design movement—among them are the Eameses, Mies van der Rohe, Josef Hoffmann, Andrée Putman, Scandinavian design, the Bauhaus, and various young British designers including Conran and his wife—and incorporates reproductions of iconic furniture, textiles, and decorative accessories. The results are whimsical yet sophisticated interpretations of many of the 20th century’s most beloved styles.  While I’m partial to the modern chinoiserie suite designed by David Tang, the Eileen Gray room with its white leather Bibendum chair and “Blue Marine” headboard is a modernist’s dream come true.
