Following the success of the original Tonight Josephine, ‘London’s most Instagrammable cocktail bar’ in Waterloo, its owner was keen to create a similar hype as its sister venue in Shoreditch.
Finch Interiors, the mastermind behind the design of the Waterloo bar, was called upon to produce a dazzling interior that was worthy of the Tonight Josephine mantle.
Described as ‘London’s most Instagrammable cocktail bar’, the aesthetic is unapologetically flamboyant, with extravagant pink marble-effect cladding, vibrant green and pink neon lighting and mirrored ceilings contributing to its ultra-modern look.
For the flooring, Finch Interiors chose Glint Void and Glint Orb, two sparkling abstracts from Amtico’s Signature Collection. The Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) have been used in an eye-catching Woven Designers’ Choice laying pattern, which adds a new dynamic to their already attention-grabbing aesthetic.
Durability played a key role in the decision process, as the flooring had to stand the test of time, withstand heavy traffic and, crucially, combat the scuffs and dents commonly caused by high heel and stiletto shoes. The Signature Collection’s thick 1mm wear layer and generous 20-year guarantee provided peace of mind, making it the only choice for the designers and the venue.
"The diversity of Amtico’s designs led us to create a bespoke up-scaled look that is contemporary, fresh and airy and, importantly, in keeping with the overall character of the property."
