Designers at Debenhams take over luxury London hotel for a year - and you can stay overnight

The Designers at Debenhams team are taking on a 12-month style challenge at a London luxury hotel and will be treating all guests to a luxury hamper on arrival and vouchers for the Oxford street store.

Four top interiors experts with collections at Debenhams will be exclusively styling one of the impressive living spaces at luxury London apart-hotel Cheval Three Quays over the next 12 months.

The designers will highlight their latest ranges against impressive skyline views of Tower Bridge, The Shard and City Hall framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and a private Thaneside balcony.

Four Designers at Debenhams will each put their own stamp on one luxury apartment for three months at a time, starting with fashion-turned-interiors designer, Ben de Lisi.

Drawn to the idea of “kitting out an aspirational place”, de Lisi lends a layer of artist-studio chic to the space with a palette of bright colours, graphic prints and bold stripes. 


Best-selling motifs: Ben de Lisi's three beloved French bulldogs feature on homeware pieces throughout the flat, including print cushions and even the salt and pepper shakers in the kitchen area


The playful new collection turns the hotel room into a fun and youthful space. Describing his range as “modern, eclectic and bold”, de Lisi’s homeware has a distinctive sense of humour that works. In fact, the designer still holds the title for Debenhams’ fastest-selling product ever - a scarlet bulldog cushion.

You can easily slot elements of the collection into your own home decor and, of course, that is the idea behind this collaboration.

One of the most versatile pieces the colour-block throw. Priced at £80, the colourful padded bedspread is striking against the simple light grey backdrop of the bedding, but could also easily work as a living room throw just in time for Spring. While the 'Love light', Ben de Lisi's favourite piece, will add a cool retro-chic touch to any room.

From £35: Ben de Lisi's grey 'adventure' bedding set and colour block throw


The ultra-luxe setting is a clever way to showcase the versatility of high-street homeware. The daring patterns and playful graphics will inspire any interiors enthusiast - and an overnight stay enjoying floor-to-ceiling river views may just rekindle your love of London, too.
