Taking its name from local Rhaune Laslett, the organiser of what would become the first Notting Hill Carnival, Living Rooms’ latest, and fourth venture, The Laslett has settled straight into our corner of town.
With 51 bedrooms designed to be modern but comforting – like the home of a fabulous friend – The Laslett is stocked full of antiques, hand selected libraries and treats like Neal’s Yard toiletries to help you feel at home. Plus there’s a ‘Big Bar’ in every room, stocked with ‘good’ and ‘bad’ snacks and ‘help me’ remedies and drinks to replenish you.
Don’t come out west if you’re expecting clinical settings and corporate rooms, The Laslett centres itself around the neighbourhood with a warm and friendly feel, prizing themselves on their British library, bar and coffee shop.
Every detail is paid close attention, from furnishings, to lighting and art, The Laslett have given each fitting consideration. Race and Pinch are on hand providing modern furniture throughout, dreaming up bespoke benches, bedside tables and classic BA dining chairs. Named ‘Gil’ after singer Gil Scott Heron, The Laslett’s lighting is provided by Simon Day at Nocturne Workshop, made right in east London.
Artwork dotted around the hotel includes contributions from Barry Kamen’s ink and paintwork, original prints by Toby Mott, illustrations by Barbara Hulanicki, Brian David Stevens photography and curiosities sourced from Jerome Dodd’s Les Couilles du Chien.
