For holidays 2017, Made Up’s luxury activations team were tasked with designing and building an extensive ‘winter lodge’ structure in the grounds of Holborn’s historic Rosewood hotel. The lodge was to reflect Black Forest Germany and not be confused with either Alpine or ‘après-ski’ lodges. Heated benches were draped with soft furnishings for a vintage feel. On-trend sheepskin was used as a temporary covering for other furniture.
The terrace’s stunning green marble tables provided inspiration for the bar top – an excellent example of our team complementing premium quality permanent fixtures with a temporary-component shaped budget.
The design team also sourced and installed: botanical drawings of Monkey 47’s ingredients and vintage frames, antique model aeroplanes, period silverware, books, crystal and glassware, and working cuckoo clocks (timed to ‘cuckoo’ at different intervals for effect).
