With a new name comes brand new interiors: Pavilion on High Street Kensington, previously known as Dryland, has just undergone refurbishment by the team at designLSM, creating a contemporary, elegant restaurant and delicatessen catering for its discerning club members as well as the general public.

designLSM redesigned the ground floor of the venue, combining the existing Drylands café with a neighbouring retail unit to create one space that offers customers a delicatessen, a refined classic champagne bar, a fine restaurant with dramatic open kitchen and additionally, a beautifully presented florist.

The florist greets guests as they enter the restaurant, displaying tailor made bouquets by Paul Morris along brass shelving, offering a charming visual impression. The champagne bar can then be found at the centre of the restaurant, designed with Marquina marble, brass inlays and a delicately profiled pewter top. The bespoke bar also features a brass wine gantry and dramatic illuminated glass pillars.

Framing the bar is the Carrara marble delicatessen counter on the left, home to an abundant display of produce, breads and pastries freshly baked in the on-site bakery. An open kitchen is on the right of the bar, which allows diners to watch their dishes being prepared by head chef Adam Simmonds and his team.

Final touches include privately commissioned oil paintings by renowned British artist Simon Casson, hand crafted furniture made with opulent leathers and bespoke copper light features all designed by designLSM, bringing together the overall design scheme with its striking visuals and stylish atmosphere.
