Luke Edward Hall is an English artist, designer and columnist. Luke’s philosophy is shaped by his love of storytelling and fantasy. His colourful work is often inspired by history, filtered through a lens of irreverent romanticism.
Luke established his studio in the autumn of 2015 and since then has split his time working on a broad range of projects and across multiple disciplines. He exhibits his drawings and paintings internationally with Athens-based gallery The Breeder, and works as an interior designer, creating and art directing hotels, bars and restaurants. Previous projects include a thirty-eight-bedroom hotel and bistro in Paris, and a restaurant inside the iconic Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz.

Return to Arcadia is Luke's first collection of fabrics crafted in collaboration with Rubelli, the Venetian family-run company now in its fifth generation.
Much of what Luke attempts to evoke in his work is a spirit of time and place, one that relates to his experiences but takes on an otherworldly aura in memory...
Luke has authored three books and in March 2019 he joined the Financial Times as a columnist in FT Weekend, answering readers’ questions on interior design and living well.
"On a cold, slightly damp morning we journeyed from London to the Cotswolds to meet artist and designer Luke Edward Hall. Backdropped by rolling hills and bleating sheep, his honey-coloured studio sits within a cluster of farm outbuildings.
The space, all vaulted ceilings and vintage ephemera, seems to exist outside of this century. Stacks of magazines, rolls of wallpaper, and an ornate Arcadian vase occupy the floor. Two woodland grotto-worthy chairs surround an oval table piled with postcards, stickers, and photographs. In short, it is a collector’s paradise."
