The Library at Ham Yard Hotel


Kit Kemp, Design Director and co-owner of Firmdale Hotels, and the late Melissa Wyndham, a top interior designer, have collaborated with Blithfield Fabrics to create a special collection for British social enterprise Fine Cell Work.

The Library at Ham Yard Hotel is a hand-picked reading and reference library to inspire, entertain and better inform. The collection includes a large section on London, its history, arts, literature, culture and politics and a wide selection on travel, world history and global issues. The walls are lined with Kit Kemp’s Christopher Farr fabric, Ozone, with hand embroidered Suzani curtains from her Chelsea Textiles collection. The large honesty bar encourages guests to make themselves at home by fixing themselves a cocktail, coffee or nightcap.

“It is lovely to have work by established artists sitting beside work by young artists – I think it makes the room feel less serious and a little more witty.” Kit Kemp A Living Space: The Library at Ham Yard Hotel
