The Lounge Bar

The Lounge Bar has recently been given a soft refurbishment. The VSC worked closely with Interior designer Helen Hughes of Helen Hughes Design who was commissioned to upgrade the Club’s already impressive Lounge Bar into a warmer opulent space where members and guests can relax and unwind. 

Helen has been involved with similar organisations such as The Farmer’s Club in Whitehall where she has created modern and welcoming rooms with different textures and furnishings. Helen said, ‘When I first arrived at the Club, I felt the space was a little cold and could be improved by adding more variety into the seating types”. Helen worked closely with the CEO and Senior Managers and spoke to them about the Club’s requirements and also spent a bit of time in the Lounge Bar to get a feel of how the space was utilised by the members. Helen’s design incorporated the use of different textures, fabrics and layers to create a warm inviting space.

Helen went on to say ‘You’ll notice how the new fabrics have subtle variations of textures and patterns within a neutral colour palette that adds depth and warmth to the room, it is stylish and modern but has elements of classic design that should retain their appeal’. ‘On my initial visit to the Club, I also noticed that all the furniture was the same height. To create different seating zones we added bar stools and high tables as well as a new Chesterfield inspired Banquette which provided some additional lounge-style seating. Twin wingback chairs also added a sense of privacy and comfort. ‘The colour scheme was also important, a subtle colour palette was chosen that complimented the existing carpet completed with a new paint finish to a feature wall providing the perfect backdrop to some of the clubs art collection’. A large decorative mirror was repositioned to the wall opposite the window to allow light to reflect back into the room to create an airy light feeling’.

‘We’ve been working on this project since Autumn 2018 so it’s great to see it completed for the enjoyment of the member’s’
