The Ultimate Gallery Wall at the London Edition

via Hotel Chic

Berners Tavern at the new London Edition is the buzzy it-restaurant of the moment, but beyond Michelin-starred  chef Jason Atherton’s menu, it’s the art that has people talking. The soaring space features over 180 photographs displayed gallery style. Schrager and his design team collaborated with  Trunk Archive to select an amazing array of images. The bonus is that many of the photographs are available for sale through TA . While the display features over 60 artists and subjects that range from flowers to sheep, the photos all have a similar dreamy, haunting quality to them. Explains Trunk Archive’s EVP Leslie Simitch, “I’ve worked with Ian Schrager for years, first curating the guest room artwork for The Gramercy Park Hotel, then consulting on his Public Hotel in Chicago and now on this project for the Edition Hotel in London. We always try to surprise hotel guests with refreshing and stimulating artwork, and I think that we have been very successful.”


You could crib the look in your own dining room in vintage frames to create that clubby, Brit vibe (even without the triple height ceilings and elaborate moldings ). Change up the frames and the whole look would be more modern.  The whole still life/empty rooms/landscape/floral/farm animal combo of images works so well  for the gallery style wall here–but the photographs are equally captivating on their own. Here are a few of my favorites from Berners/London Edition that you could hang at home
