London's Langham Hotel once welcomed Oscar Wilde as a guest—and the mauve decade seems alive and well at David Collins Studio's Artesian lounge in the 1865 hotel. Lavender butterfly shapes, fluttering in-side bespoke resin tabletops, coordinate with love seats upholstered in leather and silk draperies sporting exquisite over-curtains of eyelet lace. Meanwhile, flooring of rattlesnake-embossed leather parquetry complements a carved wood chinoiserie back bar. A David Collins–designed restaurant opens at the hotel later this year.
