In the studio

Cosy up at Ananas...

If you are getting down and getting cosy at Urban Purveyor Groups latest offering, Ananas Bar and Brasserie at The Rocks, then you are going to find yourself snuggling against the gorgeous silk velvet cushions our studio designed for the banquettes.

With an avant garde approach we dabbled in a 1920s esq cut velvet with a chinoiserie chic pagoda motif and French rose coloured velvets sliding against dusty blues completed with silk fringing. And a carnival of stripes just for fun. We just love the magic Saskia and her team at Grandiflora wove with the flowers perfectly placed under the Peacock I sourced from the USA.  Saskia must have 'got' me when I briefed her that I wanted the flowers to be a wild burst of roses, ferns and orchids with a French Mediterranean twist - just as a crazy aunt might put together.

Feeling like wiggling your bottom like Josephine Baker in a banana skirt? Then it sounds like your fancy has been truly tickled while slurping on a shucked oyster and a glass of champagne at Ananas Bar and Brasserie.
