THE 2014 LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL

ldf_2014_web_banners_top-01


Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or plagued with another bout of tonsillitis!), you will know that the London Design Festival started last week and is now in full swing. Everyone remotely interested in design has caught the bug and the city is abuzz with creativity and excitement from Chelsea to Brompton, Kensington and Notting Hill to Mayfair and Shoreditch, and so many other pockets within the capital as far as Syon Park where Decorex returns after so many years.  
Come and see us at the Redloh House Fabrics Stand 23!

A-Gent of Style will be showing you soon some of his highlights after scouring the myriads of fairs, exhibitions, events, talks and parties (of course). Stay tuned!

JOIN THE Q: THE POP-UP ROOFTOP RESTAURANT AT SELFRIDGES



 

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 11.51.49

Had A.A Gill reviewed two weeks ago the restaurant featured today on the blog,
A-Gent of Style would probably have given it a wild berth. In his now iconic weekly column in the Sunday Times, the sardonic food critic panned Q Grill last weekend and gave it a mere star for the quality of its food. Ouch. Thankfully, the angle A-Gent of Style, albeit a self-confessed foodie, approaches is from an aesthetic point of view, not a culinary one.

After a therapeutic shopping spree Saturday before last that ended up in Selfridge’s and in need of “a little bit of wet with a little bit of dry” (that’s tea and cake for you), A-Gent of Style was whisked up to the fifth floor in the specially-dedicated express lift reached from a discreet entrance opposite Selfridges’ perfume counter to review the new pop-up restaurant that opened last month until September 27 on top of the department store.

Q-Roof-Selfridges

After last year’s successful Tea & Gold Party theme, Q Grill, originally based in Camden and owned by restaurateur Des Mc Donald, is offering throughout the summer an al fresco concept amongst the department store’s own secret rooftop garden and the skyline of London (not the most thrilling views of the capital, it has to be concurred with Adrian Anthony, but still a view) for a unique outdoor dining and drinking experience of BBQ-ing, grilling, summer dishes as well as a pop-up juice bar, that is open for late breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner seven days a week.

Designed by Alexander Waterworth Interiors, the main inspiration for the venue is taken from grand Victorian greenhouses and combined with a more contemporary setting to enjoy the BBQ season and the sunshine in the heart of central London. Should any sudden downpour spoil the fun, a metallic retractable roof will unfold to protect the diners. Wooden tables and 1970s-feel relaxed seating (single chairs, stools and a custom deep-buttoned banquette upholstered in various leather courtesy of Style Matters, bespoke furniture experts) are tucked away amongst lush herbaceous borders, dense foliage of ivy on the walls, scented plant pots and AstroTurf to create a fun and laidback atmosphere. Pass the parapet adorned with flags, there is, at the back of the roof terrace, via a garden path, a bespoke bar made with wooden boards, fronted by Mathieu Matégot-esque metal stools with leather seats, not somehow too dissimilar to the beachy clapboard style of the Hamptons and the ubiquitous, minimalist and rustic-concrete look of the Polpo-Popletto eateries.

If it is an open-air, relaxed spot amongst a stylish decor you are after, away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, Q Grill is a good recommendation for the summer. Just don’t blame A-Gent of Style if you don’t like the food. You should have read A.A Gill’s review first.
