Member Article

Today, the Mercers’ Company has announced that the Milan inspired hair salon, Patrizia Manias, has opened its debut central London store in Covent Garden, following its current shop in Battersea.

Located at 20-22 Shelton Street in the heart of the West End, Patrizia Manias’ latest salon spans nearly 1,000 sq ft and pays homage to its bespoke Italian style; showcasing an elegant interior featuring highly polished floors, mirrored worktops and full grain orange leather massage chairs. Complete with a secret door leading to an inner beauty sanctum, the salon also offers exclusive T-Shape treatment for body remodelling and facial skin rejuvenation.

Continually recognised for dictating trends and cutting-edge hair treatments, Patrizia Manias originated from the heart of the fashion world, Milan, where it opened its first store back in 2002.

Stefano Gambatesa, Creative Director, Patrizia Manias, commented: “Covent Garden remains a key area for us to open our debut store in the capital. This a great opportunity for us to build our consumer following by offering Italian inspired services to dynamic Londoners looking for that extra level of luxury treatments. Opening a salon in the nation’s capital had always been a dream for us at Patrizia Manias, and we are excited to welcome visitors to experience our store; our ultimate goal is that we want all our guests to leave feeling good as well as looking good.”

Simon Taylor, Property Director at the Mercers’ Company, added: “We are always looking for brands that can bring something unique to our destination. As an established Italian brand, Patrizia Manias is a brilliant addition to Covent Garden and the array of international brands already on offer here. The salon will provide the ideal ‘retreat’ for those looking for that bit of luxury post-lockdown and we are confident the business will appeal to the capital’s Londoner base.”

Patrizia Manias joins an array of cosmetic and premium retailers in Covent Garden, including Blow Ltd, Boots, Russell & Bromley, Calvin Klein and Levi’s. Hanover Green acted on behalf of the Mercers’ Company and Patrizia Manias represented themselves.

This interior, designed by Ben Lewis of Trenzseater for a rural Canterbury home, is a finalist in both the prestigious SBID Interior Design Awards and the International Design & Architecture Awards, both in London.

This living room could be a lesson in how to put a room together.

The design, by Ben Lewis of Trendzseater in Christchurch, has wowed judges in the prestigious SBID International Design Awards in London, who have listed the project in the awards finals. People have until the end of September to vote for their preferred entry.

And this is not a new accolade for Lewis – last year he won the Global Category at the International Design & Architecture Awards with the beautiful interior of the Blakely residence in Ohoka, Canterbury. Lewis has made the finals for this award four years in a row.

The living room reflects Lewis' layered approach to interior design.

The new interior, for a newly renovated architectural home in rural Canterbury, references a colour scheme the designer favours – rich, green jewel tones are teamed with black and warm neutrals to ensure rooms are both welcoming and dramatic.

Symmetry is a strong feature in all Lewis’ designs, as is a careful balance of light and dark elements, and sleek and textural. This year’s entry incorporates a dark wood console positioned in front of a large mirror, framed by large table crystal table lamps. An oversized green floral arrangement adds visual drama.

Another console features large white Linden table lamps and three green vases. And a Linden table lamp in black, on a side table, continues the textural look.

Greenery is much in evidence throughout the interior – most surfaces feature plants, such as a potted orchid or leafy floral arrangement.
