Solus uplifts the interior of The White Lion

April 2019

Leading tile supplier Solus has uplifted the interior décor at The White Lion Restaurant and Bar in Bristol, with the use of its floor and wall tiles.

Famous for the spectacular terrace view of the River Avon and the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the refurbishment of The White Lion is part of the Malmaison Hotel du Vin’s investment programme into the historic property.  The re-design was carried out by Dexter Moren Associates and the team were tasked with retaining the character of the grade II listed building, whilst creating a contemporary and chic bar and restaurant area.

Working alongside Dexter Moren Associates, Solus produced a bespoke central mosaic feature floor using the Capital range, creating a standout design that adds charm to the bar, as well as the bathrooms.  The distinctive gloss wall tiles from the Arcadian range also added a touch of style to the interior.

Wall tiles from Solus’ Smooth range were also used in the refurbishment, as well as intricate patterned hexagons from the Illustrate range, which are inspired by traditional terracotta tiles.  The warm earthy shades of Illustrate are complemented by three neutral options, which when mixed together create an enchanting design.

John Rose from Solus, said: “Working on the redesign of the iconic White Lion has been a fantastic project.  The striking mosaic floor created from the Arcadian range is a stunning feature which effortlessly fits with the character of the original venue.”
