Luke Edward Hall is an English artist and 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.
Since founding his studio in 2015, Luke has worked on a broad range of commissions, from interior design and fashion projects to murals and illustration work for books, restaurants and hotels. He has collaborated with a variety of companies and institutions including Burberry, Lanvin, Ginori 1735, Svenskt Tenn and Rubelli. Luke exhibits his drawings and paintings internationally with Athens-based gallery The Breeder. In March 2019 he joined the Financial Times as a weekly columnist in FT Weekend, answering readers’ questions on aesthetics, interior design and stylish living.
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.
Luke's exhibition of drawings, paintings and ceramics, Figs and Honey and Sailing, opened at The Breeder in Athens in January 2021.
Paris is always a good idea...
Hotel Les Deux Gares, a new thirty-eight bedroom hotel in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, and Cafe Les Deux Gares, a bistro opposite, opened in October 2020, with interior design and art direction by Luke.
Profumi Luchino is Luke's new collection of fragrant candles and collectibles, created in collaboration with Ginori 1735 and inspired by his travels and the places he loves.
Café Les Deux Gares is situated across the street from Hotel Les Deux Gares and is Luke's take on the classic Parisian bistro.
