Demoiselle by Galvin, UAE

September 5, 2017

Demoiselle by Galvin is the latest venture from Michelin-starred chef’s Chris and Jeff Galvin. The concept expands upon their flagship restaurant located within Harrods department store, London.

Located in Dubai, the concept behind the restaurant’s design was inspired by a charming chateau that Chris stumbled upon on a trip to Champagne, France. Inside the Art Deco building he discovered an ornate collection of paintings illustrating beautiful birds of paradise and decadent Parisian women adorned in a feminine pastel-hued palate. DesignLSM was tasked with making this vision a reality.

Downstairs the café provides a sophisticated and relaxed environment with a unique blend of casual seating including luxurious leather banquettes, upholstered dining chairs and intimate bar stools which set against an impressive open kitchen counter offering guests the chance to experience an avid sense of culinary theatre. A fresh palette of dusty pinks and hues of mint green conjure an air of understated elegance with aged mirror screens and herringbone oak flooring bringing a more traditional feel. Scattered across the ceiling is a stunning array of bespoke geometric pendant lights designed and manufactured by Into Lighting. Frosted antique glass globes highlighting the beautiful bespoke finishes such as the brass trimmed marble topped tables. The grand staircase leading diners upstairs is enriched by an arresting double height panel mirror and glass display cabinet showcasing a beautiful vintage collection of tea and coffee pots while the top of the stairs is dressed with an exquisite hanging garden wall lit by low-hanging lights.
