Once a catalyst for some of the city’s most influential friendships and business ventures, the historic fourth floor Blue Room has reopened its doors, reinvented and remodelled in partnership with British designer Timothy Oulton.
Cozy and relaxing, with an edge of drama and intrigue, the Blue Room retains a strong sense of its erstwhile allure in a fresh, modern setting. Huge comfortable leather wing chairs sit with repurposed Drum side tables, while vibrantly-coloured Chesterfields invite conversation under the glow of a chandelier crafted from real laboratory test tubes. Every nook reveals vintage curiosities, from sporting trophies to Timothy Oulton’s striking Match Point artwork, created from old wooden tennis rackets.
According to LAAC general manager Steve Hathaway: “The collaboration is a blend of two iconic brands that represent heritage, quality, and the celebration of a holistic lifestyle, which balances pleasure and productivity.”
The story of Timothy Oulton began in 1976 with a small antique shop owned by Tim’s dad. Profoundly influenced by his love of antiques, his father’s military background, and an inherent affection for British heritage, Tim created an authentic, visionary brand with a deep commitment, integrity and a passion to deliver the extraordinary. Today, Timothy Oulton is a world-wide luxury brand with a global presence.
