Diane von Furstenberg to Design Suites for Claridge's
Famed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg will unveil her first interior design project this summer, a series of rooms and suites for Claridge's, the ultra-luxe Art Deco hotel in London's Mayfair. Von Furstenberg, a longtime guest and friend of the hotel, will bring her iconic prints and bold colours as well as original pieces of furniture to the legendary landmark. Claridge's and von Furstenberg have enjoyed an intimate relationship since the 1970s and some of her past collections have even been inspired by the renowned hotel. "One of my fondest memories was when I was in London as a young, independent businesswoman and stayed at Claridge's," the designer recalls. "I knew I had made it. To me, Claridge's is the most glamourous hotel in the world; I regard it as my home away from home."
