Burmese Teak Parquet from Basil Street Hotel, Knightsbridge

Posted in: LASSCO News

‘There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea’.  ~Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady


Alas this ‘ceremony’ is fast becoming a thing of the past with the once elegant Basil Street Hotel in Knightsbridge – that urbane reminder of our Edwardian past  – recently closing.

Basil Street Hotel 

Sadly stripped of all its former interior glory and with its ultimate fate as yet unknown, there is still a silver lining. LASSCO has fortunately been able to retrieve much of its elegant Burmese Teak parquet, a sample of which can now be seen in their showroom at Brunswick House, Vauxhall.

Rich in colour and with that all inimitable patina of age, this is a floor to admire!
