Arts and Crafts | room2 Chiswick hometel
the spirit of place

Arrive at London’s first hometel and step into a building inspired by the spirit of Chiswick’s community and influence in the Arts & Craft movement.

Arts & crafts was a rebellion against the homogenization of design & mass production, and our spaces intend to be a reflection of this while championing our local artists and craftsmen. Stepping back from the highly polished terrazzo dreamscapes of the hotel industry; we have created something that feels real to the touch with a sense of connection to craftsmanship. All our rooms and common areas are fitted with bespoke handcrafted pieces from a range of local artists, designers, and skilled craftsmen.

other crafty moments

Our hometel is littered with many more Arts and Crafts design elements, here are a few more you may notice:

  • Hand blown recycled glass pendant lights hang in the entrance
  • Hammered metal lamp shades over the lounge banquettes from Emery et Cie
  • The coffee table is made by local artists Eliza Hopewell and Theodore Vass from a London plane tree felled in Euston. These plane trees absorb pollution which is what gives the grain such an amazing quality. This wood has over a century of Euston pollution in its makeup.
  • The cafe bar is tiled with locally made bespoke handmade blue & white tiles, which ignite the bar counter
  • The bar front uses reclaimed antique Elm with treatment inspired by the ancient Japanese yakisugi process. The practice involves the use of an open fire or controlled flame to char the wood before cooling, cleaning and treating it with natural oils to create a dark visual style and uniquely tactile feel.
  • Our guest rooms include handmade ceramic fruit bowls & hand knotted Bits & Bobs boxes.
  • Handmade tassel pendants can be found in the bedrooms and over the main café bar
  • The carpet in our corridors is made from reclaimed fishing nets
