Marquetry Wall Panels for a 5-star hotel.
The Lanesborough, London, England.

Bespoke marquetry for wall panels for a luxury London hotel.

Exclusively commissioned by BECK Interiors, for the St George’s Room at The Lanesborough, a 5-star hotel located in London, England.

400 metres of floor-to-ceiling marquetry panels made using European Oak and Black wood veneer. One of the largest marquetry projects ever produced. Designed by renowned architect, Alberto Pinto, who was inspired by the original style and design of the St George’s Room.

We followed through down to the smallest detail, without an error. BECK Interiors were extremely happy with the outcome. We made the panels in-house using the antique tradition of marquetry, in which we specialise. This is where a professional scroll saw machine is used instead of CNC Lasers.
