Lusso and Jacksonheim Boutique deliver notes of modern luxe to Manchester
Inspired by a myriad of international locations and cultures, the Jacksonheim Boutique provides a series of stunning staycation spots in the heart of Manchester and luxury lifestyle brand Lusso supplied a range of its renowned bathroom products to the aparthotel to complete the look…
Jacksonheim Boutique is a collection of luxury boutique apartments with hotel-like services. Sheltering thoughtful and often unexpected designs, each aparthotel and serviced apartment is unique, based on the brand ethos of ‘never repeated but always remembered’, with individuality and originality as its hallmarks.
Merging both Japanese and Scandi influences, the Japandi Boutique is calm, inviting and tranquil. Featuring oak panelling, micro-cemented walls and a neutral colour scheme with hints of black. The suite is designed to communicate hygge and wellbeing, which is why it’s decorated with the smooth white stone of Lusso’s collection, including the popular Picasso Basin and Edge Wall Hung Vanity Unit.
Sleeping between one and six guests, the Midnight Residence is the epitome of luxury. Boasting an open-plan living space with high ceilings, the bathroom is characterised by its dark biophilic design, which sets the mood for a long soothing soak in the grey Monaco Lusso bath. The opulent freestanding bath is offset by a striking nature wall, allowing the green hues to highlight the deep grey shade of the stone. The matching Nuvo Basins make the perfect final touch. The stoneware is part of Lusso’s Silk Collection, which is available in three earthy colourways – Grigio Earth, Charcoal and Pebble Grey.
Designed to whisk its residents away from the hustle and bustle of Manchester to the cosmopolitan surroundings of New York City, the New York boutique apartment does just that. Featuring 15 foot ceilings, solid oak floors and exposed brickwork, beams and pillars. The industrialised interior contains Lusso’s products in its walk-in shower room, including the Thinn Stone Basin.
In a quickfire round of questions, Lusso caught up with Phoebe Desser, Jacksonheim’s interior designer, to find out a bit more about the design process.
Lusso: Why did you choose to feature Lusso within the apartments?
Phoebe Dresser: Lusso products are durable yet beautiful in design and they help us to create breathtaking spaces while maintaining our need for durability with high-quality finishes. Lusso also has a wide variety of products already available, with frequent updates for new additions.
L: What’s the most important factor when designing an aparthotel?
PD: While beauty and creativity are at the forefront of all that we do, we always maintain a high standard of any materials used. We ensure all the suppliers we work with provide hard-wearing, long-lasting products or materials as the products we use must stand the test of time. From a visual aspect, they need to look a certain way, however, this is rendered useless if the product is going to crumble after a few uses.
L: Can you tell us about your favourite Lusso product?
PD: It would be so difficult for us to choose our favourite Lusso product, given that we use a vast range of items throughout our portfolio. If we had to choose the current front runner, it would be the Monaco Grigio Earth Freestanding Stone Bath, which you can find in our Midnight Residence. Not only do we love this bath at Interiors by Jacksonheim, but we are constantly receiving positive feedback from guests on how much they adore the design. According to one of our recent guests, they didn’t want to get out of the tub!
We also love the Picasso Countertop Stone Basin, as well as the Edge Wall Hung Vanity Drawer Unit, which are both featured in our Japandi Boutique. The basin in particular is a favourite of ours for a number of reasons, as it’s easy to clean, hasn’t been damaged or stained since we installed it and looks amazing.
Lusso supplies its range of luxury bathroom, kitchen and homeware to a range of clients around the world. Its products can be found in some of the world’s leading hotels, including Claridges, The Connaught and New York’s Equinox Hotel. Also tailored to bespoke requests, one of its biggest bespoke projects to date is London’s iconic Trocadero building – now known as the Zedwell Hotel – for which Lusso supplied over 700 bespoke-sized stone basins to fit out the bathrooms in the modular hotel rooms.
