The holiday season is just around the corner. For many of us that means more time spent hosting our loved ones: long weekends with family, dinner parties with close friends, and all-out festive parties with, well, just about everyone we know.
If you’re planning on entertaining over the coming months, you might want to add some Soho House-inspired touches to your space. Soho Home’s collection – complete with handcrafted dinnerware, stylish home accessories and all the finishing touches – is just the ticket. Members enjoy 15% off as part of their member benefits, too – simply log in to start shopping.
How to up your hosting game
Taking inspiration from Little House Mayfair’s club space, Soho Home’s Huxley collection features a clean-cut look and heavyweight feel. Much like the rest of the Huxley offering, these lowball glasses are crafted in Slovenia by Rogaška Glassworks, a factory that has been producing crystalware since 1927.
Huxley Cut Crystal Rocks Glass, Set of Four, £250/ $325
If you’re more Champagne than short cocktails, the Huxley Coupe glasses are a bar cart essential. As light passes through the hand-cut crystal, it refracts for a brilliant sparkle.
Huxley Cut Crystal Coupe Glass, Set of Four, £300/ $390
Add a little opulence by serving drinks on the silver-plated Rochester Tray. Each tray is finished with intricate vintage-inspired etchings that nod to the antique furnishings at Soho House 76 Dean Street.
Rochester Engraved Silver Tray, £200/ $260
This set of four coasters, complete with the same intricate etchings as the Rochester Tray, makes a stylish addition to your bar cart. Leave dotted around the room to protect any pieces of furniture.
Rochester Engraved Silver Coasters, Set of Four, £125/ $160
Inspired by Soho Farmhouse, this dinner set includes everything you need: dinner plates, side plates, cereal bowls, pasta bowls and mugs. Handcrafted just outside Florence, each piece is entirely unique, thanks to the hand-applied glaze.
Hillcrest White 20 Piece Dinnerware Set, £565/ $735
How to ensure you’re guest ready
Provide some Soho House-approved comfort in your guest bedroom with our House Robes. Super-soft and fluffy, the hooded gowns can even be personalised with their initials.
House Robe, £95/ $150
A mainstay in our bathrooms around the world, this Cowshed hand care duo is a House essential. Pop the pair in your bathroom to treat guests: both the Hand Wash and Hand Cream are blended with grapefruit, bitter orange and lavender essential oils.
Cowshed Winter Hand Care Caddy, £40/ $60
Inspired by Soho House Rome’s characterful design and rich colour palette of reds, yellows and greens, this sculptural armchair makes a serious statement. Place in front of the fire, so that guests can sink into its comfortable velvet seat.
Lara Armchair, £995/ $1,295
Maximise cosiness for overnight guests by including a warm bedspread in their room. This olive-green throw is inspired by a damask motif found at Babington House and handcrafted in India.
Silvanus Bedspread, £495/ $700
Soft, warm lighting is essential in our Houses. Make your space feel extra inviting by placing this antique brass lamp where you’ll be entertaining; it’s as much a conversation piece as it is a light source.
Gabriela Table Lamp, £295/ $425
How to add the finishing touches
Read them for inspiration or use them as a stylish decorative piece; either way, the Soho House book bundle deserves a place in your home. Together the cloth-bound books – Eat, Drink, Nap; Morning, Noon, Night; and City, Country, Coast – take you behind the scenes of Soho House – from food and drink to interior design.
Soho House Book Trio, £90/ $115
An interesting addition to any space, each and every one of these black marble vases is unique thanks to the distinctive veining running through the stone.
Sesso Vase, Wide, £125/ $165
The final flourish whenever you’re welcoming friends and family into your home? Filling it with a beautiful scent. Light this candle 30 minutes before their arrival, and leave it burning throughout the night. Top notes of lemon and thyme give it a light zinginess, while undertones of patchouli and amber add warmth.
Trento Sicilian Thyme Candle, Green Marble, Large 350g, £140/ $155
