Soho,  London

Firmdale’s Ham Yard hotel is situated in the heart of Soho. It’s interiors are beautifully designed by owner Kit Kemp. Kemp’s style is eclectic and luxurious which creates a homely and inviting atmosphere. Our challenge was to create a bespoke collection for their library, drawing room and suites.

We supplied over 4,500 reading books for all three locations. The books were hand chosen to create a sense of place featuring titles on Soho, London and its history, culture and vibrant local arts. The collection also includes titles on travel, world history, prize winning literature and classic thrillers so that there is a book to suit every guest. To match the interiors of the room we removed every dust jacket to reveal the colourful textured cloth spines. Using brass shelf plates, we labeled and categorised the library to ensure it was easy to navigate for guests. The end result was a beautiful hand-crafted library made up of colourful hardback and vintage reading books that has become a key amenity and attraction for guests.
