British heritage meets Italian style in Clerkenwell’s Old Sessions House, where Baxter has created its UK home at London House
Clerkenwell has long been the beating heart of London’s design and architecture community. Within The Old Sessions House, the grand Palladian building that commands attention on Clerkenwell Green, Italian furniture brand Baxter has found a home to showcase its’ products: Baxter London House.
The iconic building offers everything Baxter was looking for. Anchored in history as the nation’s largest court when it opened in 1782, today it’s a symbol for architectural creativity that stands the test of time. In the same vein, Baxter’s brand philosophy combines being rooted in Italian design culture with a contemporary outlook on style and wellbeing that promises to stay relevant for years to come.
The beauty of London House lies in the ease in which architects and design professionals can experience the brand’s product range first hand. Curated within the historical three-story structure, visitors can appreciate the compelling juxtaposition of Baxter’s soft furnishing and lounge ranges against a Georgian backdrop. The vaulted ceiling and exposed original brick walls add a unique character, harking back to the time when legal cases were battled out and prisoners were escorted to the basement cells.
Today, guests – by appointment only – can visit this impressive space to explore the interior mapped as a sensory journey. Baxter focused on creating an intuitive flow within the building that invites visitors to enjoy the tactile quality of its products, supported by advanced technologies for a holistic experience. Whether lounging on Baxter’s furniture or relaxing at the “Libertà” bar, this exclusive showroom welcomes London’s design community to pause and network in grand fashion.
