Wessex ‘Super’ Lodge “Star Attraction” at The Elite Luxury Brand Show

12th May 2015

Wessex was delighted to exhibit alongside the Waterside Group at The Elite Luxury Brand Show last weekend.  Positioned alongside jets, helicopters, supercars and a host of luxury brands, the Waterside Group’s, Elite ‘Super’ Lodge, was described by show organisers as “a star attraction”.

The Elite Show, which aptly took place at Rizon Jet, Biggin Hill Airport, is London’s most exclusive jet-set lifestyle event. With over 100 luxury lifestyle brands featured: from aviation where visitors could experience hands-on a wide selection of corporate and private aircraft; to marine where premium brand powerboats and luxury yachts were on display; to a supercar showcase of the finest luxury and classic cars, The Elite certainly didn’t disappoint those who visited.

Designed exclusively for the Waterside Group’s prestigious Osmington development in Dorset, the Elite luxury lodge, a perfect example of Wessex quality, craftsmanship and unique style was a true showstopper.  As the only exhibit of it’s kind on display, The Elite lodge brought a new dimension to the show, presenting new possibilities to the discerning audience.

The idea of specifying a unique luxury lodge, to individual requirements and taste, seemed to be a whole new concept to those who viewed the lodge and one with huge appeal.

The striking exterior clad in beautiful A Grade Cedar wood left a strong first impression. Visitors loved the statement main entrance with its glazed panels to either side framed by an extended roof dormer.  Another much admired design feature was the bi-fold doors set in perfect symmetry to either side allowing natural light to flood in. 

The luxurious accommodation within created a real wow factor starting with the impressive entrance lobby and its striking large Rococo style full-length mirror and elegant, hand carved Sweetpea & Willow console table.

The spacious and light living area, accentuated by high, white panelled ceilings, feature alcoves and bi-fold doors to the lounge and dining areas, equally left show goers in awe. Visitors particularly liked the opulent feel of the interior design with its beautiful antique brass chandeliers, large sumptuous sofas and Sweetpea & William, hand carved, wooden dining suite.  

It wasn’t just the design style that captured visitors imaginations though, hi-tech features such as the fire which utilizes the latest High Definition TV technology to create flame and sparks for a virtual fireplace; the innovative mirror that seamlessly transforms into a TV with HD 1080p picture and the fully integrated FM / DAB Ceiling Speaker System complete with Wireless Bluetooth Receiver all left gadget lovers wanting more… and more there certainly was!

The fully fitted kitchen with its impressive array of designer Smeg integrated appliances including a range cooker, microwave, washer / dryer and dishwasher, and not to forget the classic freestanding Smeg fridge-freezer was a huge hit – people just love Smeg! Separated from the rest of the living space by a large breakfast island with a sink sunk into a beautiful solid walnut top, this kitchen really did impress the most discerning!

The opulent feel continues into the master bedroom with its striking feature wall framing a simply styled Manhattan bed; beautiful Bentley Designs furniture; antique brass chandelier and coordinated bedding and curtains.  Moving through the bedroom to a spacious dressing area, visitors then discovered the highly indulgent, en-suite Jacuzzi Wellness Room with Jacuzzi Sasha Mi sauna and shower.  This had to be one of the lodge’s most talked about features and visitors absolutely loved it!

The luxury of this lodge doesn’t stop there though; the bathroom opposite the second bedroom offers something else more than a little bit special! A Jacuzzi bath with 19” waterproof TV, designer shower overhead and feature lighting in the step up to bath created yet another stir; a truly indulgent pamper experience!

Kevin Jones, National sales Manager for Wessex commented:  “ Visitors were bowled over by the opulence of The Elite lodge with its stunning exterior, intelligent layout, hi-tech features, interior design style, designer furnishings, fitted Smeg kitchen and of course the amazing Jacuzzi Wellness Room and Jacuzzi bath!  The Elite has been a fantastic event for Wessex and its been great to showcase what Wessex can do.”

Ben Nolan-Stone, Head of Sales for the Waterside Holiday Group said: “We wanted a really special lodge for our prestigious Osmington development and Wessex were the obvious choice.  Having worked closely with Wessex over the last year we know that Wessex always deliver real quality and true style, The Elite lodge is something else though and we can’t wait to see it on-site!” 

Peter Berwick, Sales Director commented: “ We’ve had a fantastic couple of days at The Elite Luxury Brand Show.  The success of this lodge is testimony to the hard work and dedication of the whole team at Wessex from the meticulous and creative sales and design teams involved in the specification and design, to the skilled craftsmen who made this ‘Super’ lodge become a reality.”
