The Chester Grosvenor’s prestigious Michelin starred restaurant, Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor, has installed a new chandelier worth £20,000 as part of the restaurant’s phase one of an interior refresh.
Fine furniture makers The Odd Chair Company and its design practice, Victoria James Designs, were appointed to assist with the interior refresh of the multi award-winning restaurant, Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor. As part of its redesign, furniture designer Victoria James sourced a chandelier consisting of 204 ‘icicles’ of Lucite acrylic, which took a total of 186 hours to create and included polishing all 204 pieces. The result is a stunning modern centrepiece which sits within the lantern ceiling that dominates the Michelin star-rated restaurant.
Victoria comments: “We wanted the chandelier to have an elegant shape with an eye-capturing light effect to really give the restaurant a focal point above diners. The aim was to have a striking centrepiece that looked amazing during the day but especially at night when the restaurant comes alive. The chandelier has the benefit of the latest control technology so the various programmable lighting effects enable the restaurant to create the right mood for the room”.
The modern design of the chandelier addresses the hotel’s juxtaposing interior style of tradition combined with contemporary elegance. General Manager of The Chester Grosvenor, Richard Grove, comments: “As the only Michelin star-rated restaurant in Cheshire, it was crucial that the chandelier complemented the understated glamour and sophistication of Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor. The illusion of it floating in the space creates a magical atmosphere for evening dining and we are thrilled with the outcome.”
