He worked with restaurateur Richard Caring on The Ivy, and decked out Scott’s restaurant, Sexy Fish, opulent private member’s club Annabel’s, J Sheekey Oyster Bar and Le Caprice, to name but a few.

He also collaborated with Nick Jones and Soho House on Soho Beach House Miami, Little House and Dean Street Townhouse, and worked with Fortnum & Mason on its glamorous 45 Jermyn St restaurant.

While this is Brudnizki’s first foray into home-decor, he conceived the line in partnership with design director Nicholas Jeanes. It’s the latest collection from And Objects, the furniture and lighting company they set up in 2015.

Billed ‘the anti-collection’, the range includes tables, sofas, consoles, bookcases, lamps, wall-lights and stools, and was more than 18 months in the making.

Brudnizki said he’s always wanted to create his own furniture brand, but wanted to establish his design studio first. Pictured: a Wickham armchair, from £5,000; a Wickham ottoman, £2,000; Marden coffee tables, £6,000 each 

Speaking to the Financial Times, Brudnizki said he’s always wanted to create his own furniture brand, but wanted to establish his design studio first.

He added that he wants his home-decor designs to make people happy, claiming ‘feelgood furniture’ has the power to boost our mental health and wellbeing.

‘There’s nothing nicer than walking into a room that makes you smile. We need to surround ourselves with beauty now more than ever. We can’t just stop living,’ Brudnizki told the publication, acknowledging it’s been a ‘difficult, difficult, difficult’ year. 

He told how he too has battled with the concept of remote working and Zoom meetings. ‘You really need to be in the room with people… to feel the fabrics and run your hand over the materials and the marble,’ he told the FT.

The designs evolved from moodboards and sketched floorplans of imaginary drawing rooms, and while none of the individual pieces match, Brudnizki said they all ‘harmonise’. Pictured left: Fresco Cushion Olive, £200, and right: Ropley Occasional table, £10,000

While his debut range embraces English crafts and materials – each piece is named after an English village – the new collection also pays homage to Brudnizki’s Scandinavian heritage, in particular the Swedish Grace movement which influenced the Stockholm architectural landscape, where he grew up.

The romantic design movement emerged in the early 20th century, and its name was coined by British journalist Philip Morton Shand – Camilla Parker Bowles’ grandfather – in The Architectural Review in 1925.

Brudnizki said: ‘It’s an incredibly elegant style that’s infused with the patterns and motifs of Swedish folklore. These designers took the idea of modernism and applied it to neo-classicism.’

The women’s powder rooms at top London private members’ club Annabel’s – which has hosted everyone from Frank Sinatra to Leonardo DiCaprio – could keep you entertained for quite some time. The bathrooms, designed by Martin Brudnizki, the man behind the breathtaking innards of Sexy Fish and The Ivy, feature a ceiling carpeted with fake roses, gold bird-shaped faucets, natural stone wash basins and a marble floor

The designs evolved from moodboards and sketched floorplans of imaginary drawing rooms, and while none of the individual pieces match, Brudnizki said they all ‘harmonise’.

Brudnizki utilised last year’s lockdowns to complete work on his new home, an apartment in a 17th-century house near the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, which was a former bolthole of the late Tory PM Anthony Eden. 

He is continuing to expand his New York operation and is currently overseeing numerous projects including a French nightclub for the Costes, the clan behind many of Paris’ most striking dining venues and hotels, and a swathe of private homes including one for his top client Richard Caring.
