About This Project

Margot is the much-anticipated restaurant from Paulo de Tarso and Nicolas Jaouën and appointed Executive Chef Maurizio Morelli. It has received rave reviews for its delicious Italian food, excellent service for which de Tarso and Jaouën are so well known, and elegant interior design.


The 104-cover restaurant, set in the heart of Covent Garden, has a relaxed stylish appearance and has been cleverly designed by Fabled Studio, a regular client of ours. The restaurant, which covers two floors, has a contemporary palette with deep and turquoise blues, pale marbles and greys with copper accents to evoke the copper pans often found in Italian kitchens.


We were chosen to work closely with both the designers and clients to develop and specify the custom-built seating and tables because of our reputation for producing restaurant furniture of exceptional quality.  To achieve results of such a high standard requires a deep understanding and appreciation for materials and processes, all of which is synonymous with our work.


Over sixty-five metres of banquette seating has been specially constructed in eight different formations tailored to fit the space perfectly. Each banquette has stained and lacquered oak frames and has been fully upholstered in soft leather with buttoned backs. They have been hand finished with over eleven thousand individual copper stud details.


Forty veneered oak tables have been custom-built to complement the banquette seating and provide the perfect understated backdrop for some spectacular food.


The beautifully finished furniture was completed within budget, delivered and fitted on time by our professional team and truly enhances this exclusive new restaurant.


Tom Strother from Fabled Studio commented “It was a pleasure to work with the team at Noble Russell again on this great project.  They have a great understanding of our attention to detail and apply the same care and attention that we do to our projects and have produced some great finished pieces for us.  We look forward to working with them again in the future”
