Fun Formal

- Fun Formal -

Thought-out details, enjoy playing with traditions

Making guests feel special, a modern kind of formal (not too much), an elevated welcome, but still relaxed around the edges.

Glacier Dining Table


Like a primeval volcanic eruption frozen in time, Glacier spectacularly freezes logs of burnt timber in Crystalline Acrylic. Perfect for storytelling around the table.

Airfoil Dining Table


The Airfoil dining table hovers over the ground, a perfect platform for high spirited meals and conversation.

Junction Dining Table


A perfect table to gather friends and enjoy the pleasures of a beautiful meal, the Junction dining table is a place of meeting. The richness of the cool marble contrasted with the strong rustic timber legs creates a stunning combination.

- The Menu -

Formal, Festive, Fun

Anchor the menu with a classic dish (a nod to tradition), and add something imaginative (and just slightly fussy) to start.
People will like the familiarity, but also appreciate the effort.
Great fresh ingredients.

~

Accompany with classic drinks: an aperitif of champagne or a cocktail, a good bottle of wine, and a port.

STARTER

BBQ Spanish Carabineros prawns, with garlic, basil and fresh lime, toasted bread and aioli

MAIN

Steamed blue lobsters with mussel and sea urchin cream, charred wild green asparagus and green leaf salad

DESSERT

Honey, lemon and almond tart, with macerated cherries and mint

Mimi Dining Chair


A beloved best-seller, the Mimi is a reinvention of a classic 1940s French dining chair with brass stud detailing and tapered wooden legs. This luxurious, classic style has a gently flared back and padded seat for comfort so you can chat for hours over dinner with friends.

Sparrow Dining Chair


Named after the noisy and gregarious British bird, the Sparrow sits invitingly at the dinner table, supporting the arc of lively conversation. Wrapped head to toe in soft Scarecrow leather.

Swallow Dining Chair


Outfitted top to bottom in distressed Scarecrow leather, the Swallow dining chair gives a modern take on being ‘dressed for dinner’. The leather is hand buffed without protection to achieve an incredibly soft hand-feel.

- The Playlist -

Classic tunes with soul, that make people smile.




A kind of reinvention: blend some classic tunes, the ones that make people smile, and mix them with the occasional offbeat indie selection that surprises people. Make sure it’s not too heavy or aggressive, but keep it interesting.

“People often called us perfectionists, but we were not looking for perfection. We were looking for some kind of magic in the music.”

Paul Simon

Iris Pendant


Inspired by the world of writer Jules Verne and his sci-fi masterpiece Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. The Iris mimics the portholes of the submarine Nautilus, crafted by hand from iron and crystal.

Phylum Pendant


The shape of the Phylum pendant emulates the idea of a water droplet suspended in ice or a tear drop falling, capturing a frozen moment in time. This distinctive form is achieved with traditional glass-blowing techniques using molten glass.

Gradient Chandelier


Handcrafted by our skilled artisans, the idea of a cathedral dome inside a sea of crystals is manifested in the Gradient chandelier. Multiple layers offer an almost infinite dome of lights.

The Fixer

"Nothing is too big or too small (as long as it is legal)" – so say global concierge gurus Quintessentially Lifestyle. CEO of Asia Pacific, Emma Sherrard Matthews, describes her perfect party as a casual, chic long lunch with friends, cruising the South China sea aboard her 64ft beautiful junk El Presidente.

ON THE MENU

Big rustic planks of antipasti, cheese, olives and Italian meats to start; followed by roasted leg of lamb and fresh and seasonal organic vegetables and salads. Bloody Marys (secret ingredient: pinch of smoked paprika!) followed by icy cold champagne, Chablis and Pinot Noir.

SET THE SCENE

I usually set the table with crisp white linen tablecloths and napkins, with a few bunches of fresh green hydrangeas and white peonies.

PEOPLE

Around 10 people is perfect, with a mix of friendship groups and guests from overseas. Hong Kong is a whirlwind of social events so taking the chance to relax with a small group of friends in an intimate setting on the water, where everyone can be themselves and escape their day-to-day worries is really special.”
