Please Sit at Fenton House

Sit down and look anew at the extraordinary world of Fenton House

Please Sit is an installation of reimagined chairs that invites the public to experience Fenton House, a luxurious 17th-century residence in London’s affluent Hampstead neighbourhood. Designers Gitta Gschwendtner, Michael Marriott, Maisie Broadhead, Nina Tolstrup, Frith Kerr and Carl Clerkin have each produced a chair inspired by the palace interiors, antique ornaments and furnishings. The installation challenges notions of luxury and taste, while its interactive nature offers visitors a different experience of National Trust properties, where touching furnishings is typically restricted. Please Sit opened as part of the 2019 London Design Festival and runs until May 4th, 2020.
