The Devonshire Club London Designed By March & White



A private members club has a peculiarly complex purpose. Add to this, 70 hotel suites above for the use of members and the logistics, functionality and performance require scientific analysis. Aesthetically, each room, each space of the club, needed to have a sense of the unique whilst being an episode in a larger, entire, piece.




To commit to creating a large, significant and very valuable piece of art is to prepare to meet some very formidable challenges. Devonshire Club was no exception to the theory. At March & White, they always work with the best craftsmen using the very finest authentic materials to ensure everything is completed to the highest quality standard. Furnitureworks are a Sussex based craft furniture makers with a reputation for producing the very highest quality upholstery. Working closely with them. 

March & White were able to interpret the organic curves and forms of mid-century style into our own, absolutely contemporary furniture.





The philosophy for Devonshire Club was to create an elegant and iconic destination for London’s city elite; a glamourous and subtly feminine space which confidently spoke of creativity, vibrancy and sophistication. Distilling inspiration from both mid-century modern design and couture, March & White created a series of distinctive spaces. These, each very individual, are, separate but still subtly connected in series, resulting in an intriguing journey from the moment of entering the club.




The mood is one of glamour and elegance with a vibrant, and very contemporary, undercurrent. Their take on the primary colour palette is visible through our selection of fabrics and finishes, creating a unique version of the Mondrian palette that boasts a timeless feel throughout the entire club.

Equestrian Gift

Riedel Horse Decanter



Riedel Crystal, the 261 year-old global leader in varietal-specific glassware (where form follows function as its wineglass shapes are created to enhance the experience and taste of a specific grape variety), also create stunning mouth-blown decanters. The sophisticated equine-inspired Riedel Horse Decanter stands at an impressive 23-5/8 inches tall with an equine profile decorating its interior – a true showstopper.Horse Decanter Kopie

Designed by 11th-generation Riedel Crystal CEO Maximilian J. Riedel, the Horse decanter was inspired not only by the Chinese Zodiacback in 2014, but also by the famous Royal Lipizzans, the rare, aristocratic breed, whose line, like the Riedel line, resided in Austria.

More than an object of beauty, the decanter is also a powerful tool, much like the energy and performance embodied by the Lipizzan breed. First bred by the Hapsburgs in the 16th century, the Lipizzan represent the prime equestrian specimen of the Baroque era and today remain symbols of pomp and circumstance throughout Europe. The decanter’s colour, defined by a single stripe of black crystal that runs the decanter’s length and outlines its interior equine profile, also takes its inspiration from the Lipizzan breed who are born black and turn white as they grow into adults.



I have long been fascinated by horses, both as animals of strength and performance as well as of elegance, in addition to the role they have played for generations in cultures throughout the world,” comments Maximilian. “With the Riedel Horse decanter, I strove to create a functional and powerful wine tool that simultaneously reflects the innate beauty, sophistication, and authority of a horse.

The decanter’s concave profile also aids in wine’s decanting process. After pouring wine into the decanter, shaking the vessel until a thin layer of bubbles forms helps to oxygenate the wine, dramatically improving its aeration and the flavour profile of the given grape varietal. As it opens the wine by “charging” it, the Riedel Horse performs a traditionally time-consuming task at high speed, while remaining regal and refined like the Austrian Lipizzans.

The Spanish Boot Company

The  Spanish Boot Company brings together town and country style with their collection of boots, accessories and clothing.



Where it all began …

Emma the founder, was working for a summer at a stable yard in the Algarve, Portugal, she received so many compliments from many British clients for a pair of Spanish Riding Boots she had purchased locally. This prompted her to make a small detour on her way home to Valverde del Camino, southern Spain to pick up a few pairs of these fantastic boots.




On her return in October 2002 the enthusiastic welcome to the boots allowed SRB Valverde to be born.

Emma’s overall aim is to provide the British market with good quality Spanish merchandise at affordable prices. She has already expanded into stocking a selection of styles and plan to increase her range where possible. Customer service is high on the list of priorities whilst establishing SRB Valverde and they also offer a made to measure service.





Emma decided to change the company name to The Spanish Boot Company mainly because it is a lot easier to remember than SRB Valverde!

From being the original importers of the Spanish Boot styles back in 2002 and still going strong! New product lines and a hugely popular bespoke service, gorgeous Egality Freedom tailoring and some pretty amazing accessories, all hand picked by our team for your shopping pleasure.

” Thanks for being part of our journey so far, we couldn’t have done it without you all! ”

– Emma
