Lambart & Browne, the team behind Loulou’s at 5 Hertford Street, Bagatelle on Dover Street, London, and numerous residential projects around the world, will design the bar at Decorex 2018.
Lambart & Browne was briefed to design a space which would provide a fresh direction for Decorex’s new bar, an evolution of the champagne bar featured in previous years, which will offer a selection of botanically infused drinks.
The starting point for the design was the expression “bon viveur”, derived from the French phrase, “bon vivant” - one who lives well - adopted by the English in the mid 19th century. Lambart & Browne will evoke this mood at Decorex with an elegant, refined, colonial-style bar.
We have designed the bar in a contemporary British style, classic eclectic. With this design we are inviting visitors to take a moment to reflect on the inspiring designs they have seen at Decorex in appropriately comfortable and elegant surroundings

The tent-like structure will be mounted on a raised platform. Each corner will feature rope-wrapped pillars, supporting a sailcloth ceiling. Sheer curtains on three sides of the bar will offer privacy and softer ambient lighting.
Inside the bar, visitors will enjoy a space adorned with decorative screens and luxurious furniture. An elegant lighting features are set to provide impactful focal points. Lambart & Browne’s design will include recognisable pieces from a number of the show’s exhibitors, contributing to a lavish yet comfortable experience.
