      The timeless glamour of Claridge’s is the result of more than a century of collaboration with some of the world’s most respected and influential designers.

      The early years

      The hotel’s original plan was developed by CW Stephens, the architect responsible for Harrods.

      Claridge’s art deco transformation took place in the 1920s and 30s. At the heart of this were the combined talents of Basil Ionides and Oswald Milne. An original Lalique door panel can still be found at the entrance to The Fumoir.

      The hotel today: restoration and innovation

      The rooftop apartments were redeveloped in the early 1990s by Veere Grenney.

      A series of collaborations with David Collins and Thierry Despont added flourishes to the Claridge’s Bar, the restaurant and several suites in the 1990s.

      Twenty rooms and suites launched in 2010 were the first interiors projects in the distinguished career of Diane von Furstenberg.

      The Ballroom, French Salon and Drawing Rooms were restored by noted architect Guy Oliver – our consultant for over 20 years. He has preserved the original features, while applying the very latest technologies.

       In 2012, we completed 25 suites that bear the name of David Linley, one of Britain’s most respected designers and craftsmen. The results combine glorious Victorian and glamorous art deco design with modern flourishes.

      In 2014, widely acclaimed British designer Guy Oliver created the interior for Fera at Claridge's, a series of rooms that reflect the restaurant's creative and natural approach, without compromising Claridge's celebrated art deco architecture.
