Opened just weeks ago, Les Deux Salons is the third restaurant from the critically acclaimed team of Will Smith and Anthony Demetre, who are also behind the Michelin-starred Arbutus and Wild Honey. Situated on William IV Street in the heart of cosmopolitan Covent Garden, Les Deux Salons offers visitors “delicious, simple food in comfortable surroundings.”
Internationally acclaimed interior design practice Martin Brudnizki Design Studio created the elegant interior of Les Deux Salons, evoking the relaxed, informal style of a traditional French brasserie. The restaurant features furniture, interior lighting and bespoke metalwork specified from commercial interior specialist Andy Thornton, designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.
Les Deux Salons features Andy Thornton’s slat back bentwood chairs, customized specifically for Les Deux Salons, together with custom-made tables throughout the dining area. Upholstered in leather, the classic chairs sit perfectly at home in the appealingly classic and cosmopolitan surroundings. The company also supplied leather upholstered bentwood bar stools, for customers to enjoy informal drinks at the bar.
Classical bentwood furniture was the perfect choice for this relaxed French brasserie, where exacting attention to detail achieved the perfect look. The bentwood chairs and oak topped tables were lightly distressed and waxed instead of lacquered, to continue the authentic French brasserie feel. With the timeless appeal of bentwood furniture, which is widely regarded as a design classic, Les Deux Salons is traditional, but also completely on trend.
Andy Thornton also supplied brass post lights with opal glass globes between the seating booths, together with brass hand and foot rails and period style door furniture.
Both clients and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio are delighted with the finished result at Les Deux Salons and feel they have created something different, which stands out from the restaurant chains that cater for the tourist trade in Covent Garden.
