Sketch Gallery restaurant and tea room in London, created by architect & designer India Mahdavi, has been entirely upholstered with the mohair velvet BOLD from the “True Velvet” collection that India designed with La Maison Pierre Frey. With a powdery pink that she called “sketch” in reference to the place, this “millennial pink” Gallery has garnered global attention since its inception. The colourful drawings by David Shrigley, hanging on the walls set a witty narrative in the room that has become one of the most Instagrammed restaurants in the world.

“For me, pink is more than a colour, it’s a mood – pink has become my flag, a way to express strength and fragility in one colour and in one space, both have become iconic” - India Mahdavi.
