Market shift spurs The Met’s new redesign


Metropolitan by COMO in London has revealed its extensive new redesign of all its suites and bedrooms.

First opened in 1997 and quickly becoming popular with a the A-list crowd, ‘The Met’ has now undergone a complete redesign to keep up with consumer demand and tastes.

Linzi Coppick was the designer tasked with transforming the space, introducing a fresh palette of natural hues and textures, including American walnut, sycamore, pale and dark timbers in all 144 bedrooms.

The lobby has also been reworked to create a new informal, versatile space.

The new look sees the hotel focus on providing a more ‘holistic experience’ with wellbeing, smooth technology and luxury being top of the agenda.

The property is aiming to reposition itself as a wellbeing hub in the capital, offering a holistic experience with the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape spa, healthy cuisine and juices and an in-room yoga channel.

“We wanted to retain the ethos of the Metropolitan while sensitively redesigning the heart of the hotel, which is the lobby, to create an informal versatile space where guests can meet, wait and relax in stylish comfort,” says Coppick.
