designLSM are pleased to be part of the team bringing the much-loved Boulestin name to a new generation of diners. We worked closely with proprietor Joel Kissin and his partners, Frank De Biasi Interiors and Carlos Afonso, to create a restaurant and cafe inspired by X.Marcel Boulestin.
Our interior design team sought to bring the story to life, designing an interior that re-imagines the original Boulestin restaurant, whilst retaining the character of the 17th century building on St James Street.
We selected high quality materials and classic finishes which work with antique feature lighting sourced by Joel to create a refined ambience that X. Marcel Boulestin’s original celebrity clientele would have felt at home in. Artwork commissioned to emulate original paintings from the period tie the scheme together and bring out the inimitable character of the man himself.
