HOTEL 1729

Jonathan Anderson | Ruinart

3rd Sep 2019

Set in a townhouse in the heart of Notting Hill lies Jonathan Anderson’s latest creation and first hospitality project, Hotel 1729. Anderson, who is the Creative Director and Founder of JW Anderson of LOEWE has teamed up with Ruinart, the oldest established Champagne house stemming from the Champagne region in the city of Reims, France to create an exceptional one-bedroom hotel that beautifully blends the designer’s creative visionary with an incredible story.

Expressing the fascinating history behind the first champagne house, Anderson drew inspiration from the cellars, vineyards and iconic Cuvees of the region. Comprising of just one bedroom, the rest of the home is occupied by an open-plan kitchen space, formal reception and cosy courtyard garden.

Upon entering, a bright yellow entrance filled with a noteworthy collection of Delftware plates and vases greets guests. Through to the extravagant dining area, the beautiful dining table does not disappoint – piled with Japanese blue and white ceramics, English and Irish Regency period cut glass jugs and original silverware to complete a spectacular pocket within the hotel. Choosing to fill the space with his own personal collections and furniture from his own home, Anderson has carefully curated the space, picking pieces that personally resonate with the designer as well as the Champagne brand. 

The king-sized bedroom spans the entire first floor to create the ultimate sense of serenity and privacy. Enjoyed by just 20 guests, the two-week project meant high exclusivity and a rare opportunity to even pay a visit to the hotel.

Named after the year that the French champagne was founded, Hotel 1729 paired a creative visionary and iconic Champagne brand, who both shared a commitment to create a beautiful space and visualise an inspiring and engaging story. Bravo!
