Interior Design

Absolute Design, who were commissioned by the Rossi Brothers.

The Solution

The extensive use of contrasting materials and textures throughout the whole project has given the pub a contemporary feel whilst still maintaining a traditional appearance.

From contrasting buttons in a “tartan” type fabric set against a natural khaki green faux leather.

To sumptuous velvet style material with traditional deep buttoned back detail.

The contrast of modern and traditional elements work hand in hand to create a venue of outstanding beauty in keeping with its surrounding environment.


A beautifully designed venue bringing together so many unusual characteristics that complement each other magnificently.
