In the heart of London’s Marylebone, there is a new addition to the dining landscape in the form of Blandford Comptoir, Xavier Rousset’s new restaurant that opened back in June 2016.

Xavier himself is a very prominent figure in the world of wine and dine, whilst at the Hotel du Vin, he won Ruinart UK Sommelier of the Year and became the youngest Master Sommelier in the World. Now he draws his attention to his new restaurant and the look and feel of the interior, in which Furniture Fusion was given the brief to fulfil his requirements.
Working closely with the B3 Designers of Metropolitan Wharf, London, we had to produce and install the dining chairs and bespoke table tops for the restaurant. Starting with the chairs, we decided to use the Joe and Sonny pieces, in their various incarnation from our ranges. Joe chairs used were the side version with a twist, as we were using the new metal framed versions with their distinctive square section detail. These were then fully upholstered in sumptuous leather in contrasting teal and saffron hues. The second chair used, Sonny, was also chosen with the newly designed metal frame, but this time fully upholstered in a sunburst orange fabric.
This eclectic mix of upholstered finishes is further complimented with the choice of bespoke fixed seating and bar stools, which were also upholstered to fit the décor.
The last part of the project were the bespoke table tops, which were made from exquisite solid marble, in both black and white. The mix was further enhanced with the use of either a copper or brass edging around the perimeter of each table top. The finished tops are simply stunning and give the whole interior an opulent vibe.
