The King’s Lodge

To step into The King’s Lodge is to step into another time – a world away from the bustle of Mayfair. In a rich tapestry of cultures and craft, this is a space dedicated to ancient history and time-honoured practices, where each bespoke element has a story to tell.

Against a palette of deep reds, terracotta and gold, intricate details and lavish textiles unfold. Mughal-inspired design sets a majestic tone, with Guy Oliver’s creative vision brought to life by artisans from Jordan to Afghanistan. Stretch out in the dappled light from Helen Whittaker’s stained-glass or soak it all up in the stately marble bathroom, with its exquisitely carved panels.

Elegant Engravings

Architectural carvings and refined details trace the suite, with intricate woodwork whittled by Syrian artisans in Jordan. Meanwhile, delicate jali fretwork in walnut celebrates this traditional Afghan craft across geometric screens and the centrepiece four-poster bed.

STITCHES IN TIME

Textiles here are a tactile homage to craft, from handmade Afghan carpets to carefully sourced fabrics from Myanmar. Striking zig-zag motifs take their cue from chevroned Mughal columns, woven through with jewel-box tones inspired by the materials of Doha’s Museum of Islamic Art.

TRADITION IN THE FRAME

Miniature, but no less magnificent, a curation of exquisite paintings from Afghanistan dot the space – bringing another dimension to The Connaught’s art of living well.
