Afternoon Tea at David Shrigley’s Pink Room at Sketch

For my birthday my friend Saboune got me an afternoon tea date at Sketch London. I had never heard of it and had no expectations whatsoever.

So when we arrived last Sunday for a couple of hours of scones and pastries I lost my breath as soon as I stepped into the room. I have never seen anything as beautiful, an explosion of pastel pink, like a scene from a Wes Anderson film.

Every two years Sketch let a new artist redecorate the space and for the past year and a bit it’s been inhabited by the work of David Shrigley. Such a great concept I think, constantly reinventing your product. Although it stings my heart knowing that this space will only look this splendid until next summer, I do find it beautiful knowing that things don’t last forever.

We sat down, taking in the beauty of everything. A lady in starched designer clothing, looking somewhat like Alice in Wonderland brought out champagne, a tower of a variety of sandwiches and pastries, scones, tea and sweets.

All tiny artworks in themselves, delicious of course. And people claim sandwiches to be plain.

Sebastian and I were enthralled, feeling like royalty. I could definitely get used to frequent fancy spots like this every Sunday.

I also need these little armchairs in my home!

All along the walls were three rows of David Shrigley’s 239 illustrations on the ironies in life. Seb felt that he had never been able to relate as much to an artwork as the plant illustration.

For two hours we sat munching on a million little pieces of deliciousness. I could not stand up properly when I left because I was so full with the most insane sugar rush. A brilliant afternoon with a more brilliant boy.

Here’s a video about the display.

I cannot recommend it more, hurry up and go! Isn’t it the most stunning place you’ve ever seen?
