1 November 2017 – Luxury serviced apartment specialist Cheval Residences has unveiled 11 newly refurbished pet-friendly apartments at Cheval Calico House on Bow Lane, in the atmospheric heart of London’s Square Mile.
Designed by Cheval Property Management Limited’s design team, the refurbishment includes new bespoke sofas, bed wall lights by Kartell Light Air, as well as Vitra chairs creating a stylish, minimalistic atmosphere, emphasising the spaciousness of the apartments. All are finished with London Underground themed cushions, and decorated with photography and artwork underlining Cheval’s deep-seated link with London. Cheval worked closely with MC Art consultancy to define the theme, identify artwork; including composition, framing and placement.
The consultancy chose colourful city maps by Icelandic-born artist, Kristjana S Williams, contemporary limited edition and fine art prints by Italian artist Chiara Fassari, and photography by American photographer, Jan Faul, whose experimentation with photography produces an impressionist feel. Local architecture and urban living was at the core of this innovative collection, with the simplicity of black and white photography demonstrated by London-based Greg Krycinski, with his sharp eye for visual design.
All the new apartments have Heathfield floor lamps and desk lamps in the bedrooms, and the walls have been decorated with Asanderus wallpaper: the ancient east meets contemporary designs with bright colours, creating a sense of new fashionable style throughout the apartments. The apartments all have engineered oak throughout the living spaces and marble-effect ceramic tiles in the bathrooms.
All 11 apartments are fully air-conditioned and feature brand new Nespresso machines, a complimentary Handy Smart Phone, Samsung smart flat-screen televisions and video entry phone systems. The apartments are also pet friendly, offering pets and guests the most luxurious base in the heart of the capital to call home.
Standing just off Bow Lane, in the beating heart of the City of London, Cheval Calico House offers 47 exclusive residences within three buildings which make the ideal base for business or leisure.
The 11 newly refurbished apartments in ‘Block A’, available for a minimum stay of three months, are spread over four floors and include six studio apartments, a luxury one bedroom apartment and four superior one bedroom apartments.
Cheval Calico House shares the same ethos and level of service rarely enjoyed outside the world’s finest hotels, offering a 24 hour concierge service to support any guest’s needs, from making personal travel arrangements and taking care of laundry to organising a chef to prepare meals in the apartments’ fully equipped kitchens, as well as weekly maid service and linen and towel change. Furthermore, guests receive a welcome amenities hamper on arrival, including all the basics and a few luxuries required for their stay.
