sketch in London transforms with art installations just in time for Christmas
While winters in London don't have the best of reputations, it doesn't mean you have to join in the misery if you find yourself in the UK capital next month. The playful sketch has teamed up with London-based artists for a series of installations throughout the restaurant's compound in Mayfair. Titled 'The Night Before Christmas', the installations reinterpret the winter holidays through flora and fauna that inspire warmth.
After her exhibit at sketch's first Mayfair Flower Show, florist Carly Rogers return to create a forest-inspired entrance called 'Hollow Way'. She last blanketed sketch's iconic bathroom with a woodland creation, building an ecosystem of moss, shrub, ferns and plants together. For winter, the restaurant will echo the chill by carpeting the bathroom with snow-covered shrubs in 'Let It Snow'. Another welcome return is JamJar, a bespoke florist duo made up of i-D magazine designer, Jocelyn Lloyd and former Take 2 Models Director, Melissa Richardson. After designing an upside down meadow for Sketch's champagne bar at the flower show, they're back to create a woodland bar at the Glade, where afternoon tea or cocktails are served in the duo's 'The Faraway Tree'.
What's Christmas without a good old tree? Sketch's 'Follow The Star' is a Christmas tree that will be created by florist Tony Marklew who's wildly popular with more than 25,000 followers on his Instagram. On your way back to the entrance, you won't miss Studio Glithero's hanging dipped candles, 'The Candle Factory', ushering you back to the charming village-like vibes of Mayfair.
'The Night Before Christmas' at sketch runs from 13 November to 6 January. For more information, click here.
