Charles Worthington, the luxury haircare brand owner, is set to open a flagship salon in London’s Covent Garden this week, with an interior design by retail specialist Caulder Moore.
The concept store is situated in a five-storey Georgian town house on 28 Great Queen Street. Called The House of Charles Worthington, the salon retains the structure of a family home with multiple rooms, including a conservatory, a drawing room, a dining room, a parlour and a dressing room. Each floor and room has its own look and feel, says Ian Caulder, creative director at Caulder Moore.
‘This is a lifestyle salon with a real focus on service. The design of the rooms is quite detailed and the scheme is fairly decorative. It is a modern interpretation of the Georgian house and has a contemporary feel,’ adds Caulder. The consultancy has created bespoke furniture and lighting for the interior scheme. The colour palette comprises a mix of muted tones.
Caulder Moore started work on the project over a year ago. The consultancy also designed the interiors for Charles Worthington’s salon located in London’s Percy Street (DW 11 June 1999). The celebrity hairdresser currently has four salons located in London and is understood to be looking to expand his portfolio.
• Caulder Moore has been appointed to create the branding for a new luxury hotel and spa complex being developed at Castle Leslie in County Monaghan, Ireland. The former hunting lodge, situated in the 405ha estate, is being transformed into a 30-bedroom hotel and will boast a newly built equestrian centre.
