This year’s awards trophies were designed by paper artist Helen Musselwhite. The beautiful domes are her artistic interpretation of the Walpole Book of British Luxury 2022 cover, designed by Walpole’s visual partner Cole & Son, which also created the backdrop for the awards ceremony.
The main table gift, a leather passport holder, was provided by Ettinger with additional gifts by JING, Miller Harris and Ruuby.
The black tie event began with a Laurent-Perrier champagne reception, followed by a three-course dinner featuring Hafod cheddar soufflé, Norfolk Black Angus Beef Wellington, and a dessert of roasted apricot tart, accompanied by Berry Bros & Rudd wine and JING sparkling tea. The night was capped off with an after-party hosted by Royal Salute which created a signature Mayfair & Salute cocktail and Beefeater Crown Jewel Gibson highballs were enjoyed.
Music for the evening was provided by the exceptional Maia (courtesy of the DJAAYZ, the 1st DJ booking app) and BEAT (courtesy of ALR Music).
Designing the exceptional Walpole British Luxury Awards 2022 trophy
Under the glass domes of this year’s Walpole British Luxury Awards 2022 trophies, the winners found the glorious work of paper artist Helen Musselwhite. Inspired by the imagery on the cover of the Walpole Book British Luxury 2022, these paper creations are not-so-mini masterpieces featuring over 50 hand-cut components.
Helen Musselwhite’s first foray into the world of paper sculpture was around 20 years ago when the artist was tasked to produce a Christmas window display for a jewellery shop on a small budget using easily procured materials. The outcome was an angel made from white and tracing paper.
“It would be true to say I had an epiphany right there and its been paper all the way since then!” – Helen Musselwhite.
“I’ve long been a fan of Cole & Son’s wallpaper. I admire the company’s craftsmanship and appreciate their process. I’d have to say their Woods wallpaper was a big influence on my work in the early days, so it was a pleasure to adapt their cover illustration into a little 3D scene. I think I’d like to live in the folly on the rocks!”- Musselwhite told The Walpole about how she crafted these spectacular creations.
