The White Horse in Dorking was originally a 13th Century coaching inn and has undergone a complete refurbishment as part of its inclusion into the Bespoke Hotels portfolio.
Elegant Clutter worked closely with Oliver Redfern Interior Design to help build an art scheme for both guest rooms and public spaces. The project called for a softer and more pastoral approach than some of the other Bespoke Hotels projects Elegant Clutter have worked on but with no lack of innovation. The bar area walls are fitted with custom designed and printed oak panelling. A feature wall in the adjoining dining area is dressed with a wall sculpture made from vintage cutlery.
Custom framed first edition books with fabric-backed mounts were used to dress the reception and the hotel’s lounge space has a huge collection of framed pictures, all made to individual specifications by EC’s framing department.
