Chucs Café Kensington is an all-day dining destination situated in one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods.
The timeless and elegant interiors are inspired by the splendour and effortless glamour of 1950s’ Italy. A sumptuous colour palette evokes the spirit of the Amalfi coast, with details and finishes reminiscent of luxury sporting endeavours, from yachts and classic Italian sports cars, to the everlasting elegance of a vintage train carriage.
The interior of the café is fresh and inviting, creating an environment that is welcoming during the day whilst remaining warm and intimate during the evening and benefits from a large outdoor terrace that wraps around the building. The signature feature of the interior space is a curved, marble topped bar with an angled oak undercounter featuring brass detailing. Above the bar hang three oversized brass pendants and in front of the bar sit a series of bespoke bar stools all upholstered in pink buffalo leather. The walls of the café are clad in oak with inset panels of patterned wallpaper and antique mirror onto which artwork is mounted. At high level, the timber panelling is inset with high gloss blue painted panels that display a series of black and white photographs. The space features an original face timber floor that transitions into a bespoke patterned marble floor in-front of the bar and to the rear of the room.
The ceiling throughout is finished in high gloss, off-white painted timber panelling, and includes two bespoke feature antique brass and prismatic glass pendants with a dome shape and petal edge detail.
Fettle has designed freestanding banquettes upholstered in a striking petrol blue leather & pale blue velvet that sit alongside marble table tops with chamfered corners and bespoke arm chairs which are upholstered in a pale-yellow, textured fabric.
