Best of British
Belgravia-based Soane Britain was founded 23 years ago and in that time
has built a fabulous reputation for upholding the best of British craftsmanship,
designing and making outstanding furniture, upholstery, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers
for clients as diverse as Mick Jagger and The Duke of Edinburgh.
Cobblers Cove as the shoot location for their new range of rattan, fabric and
wallpaper designs, co-owner and designer Lulu Lytle started to get involved in
the details of the refurbishment, eventually transforming the great entrance
hall, drawing room and two signature suites personally. Inspired by the
island’s varied flora, historical architecture and original plantation houses,
the results are stunning. But the collaboration didn’t end there; the extensive
work encompassed all the suites, guest areas, the swimming pool and pavilion,
with several of the rooms decorated entirely with Soane designs.
