Roger Lewis Sintra range helps the Polurrian balance vintage glam with modern life.

Perched high above the Cornish coastline on the Lizard Peninsula, The Polurrian Hotel & Villas has been a stay-cation hotspot for over a century, previously welcoming figures such as Marconi, Winston Churchill and Clark Gable for much needed R&R.

Every bit as welcoming now as it was when originally built in 1890, the modern edition of the Polurrian remains a fashionable and coveted escape from everyday life, with visitors taking advantage of its unrivalled location and scenery.

Recent refurbishments have breathed fresh life into the hotel, and its surrounding villas, while maintaining the effortless vintage glamour that makes it so beloved.

Design studio Hugo Da Silva was commissioned to refurbish the Hotel’s public spaces to create an experience that’s every bit as reinvigorating as the surrounding landscape. The interior was designed to capture a sense of openness with a feeling of intimacy throughout the eclectic mix of century-old and contemporary furnishings.


The Finishing Touches

When it came to the furniture, the Sintra range from Roger Lewis met the brief perfectly. Sintra Armchairs and Compact Chairs were specified throughout the Vista lounge and bar areas of the main hotel. The chairs were chosen for their soft lines, comfort and versatility in accommodating different spaces and functions. To frame each corner of the space and evoke a sense of discovery and comfort, a mix of playful colours and fabric finishes were selected. From warm greys, to bright yellows and blue hues, the fabrics perfectly emulated the surrounding coastal views.

The option to specify the base legs in different finishes including bespoke, wood or metal enabled the designers to meet the brief for a versatile ambiance and bring a continuous flow throughout the open space.
