Claridge's, a landmark hotel in London’s posh Mayfair neighborhood whose devotees include Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Kate Moss, Mick Jagger, Madonna and Victoria Beckham, has unveiled a luxurious new lounge. Dubbed the Map Room, it’s specifically intended to cater to elite business travelers looking for a retreat in which to read, relax, meet with clients, check on world markets or just be refreshed.

Designed by the Queen of England’s nephew Viscount David Linley, renowned for his custom cabinetry and woodwork, the focal point of the room is an impressive marquetry wall-sized map of the world, crafted from Macassar and walnut veneer and crowned by a bespoke steel clock. The room’s décor pays homage to the golden age of travel and the high style of the first-class lounges on the Orient Express and the Cunard liners.

Hand-crafted furnishings complement built-in solid wood bookcases housing a comprehensive library put together by luxury book publisher Assouline, featuring the best titles from their art, fashion and design collections. Throughout the day, Claridge’s kitchen also delivers an array of gourmet treats.

“Creating interiors for this beautiful hotel feels very natural to me,” Linley notes. “I admire the history and heritage of Claridge's, so the Map Room was an absolute joy to work on...It’s a giddy and glorious celebration of British life and design, past, present and future."
