Pullman, the upscale brand from French hotel group Accor, has opened its latest property next to London's Kings Cross station. Geared towards large-scale meetings, seminars and events, it includes a 446-seat theatre and a panoramic 15th-floor boardroom with interiors by Paris-based designer Mathieu Lehanneur. With a Paris property still to come, Lehanneur has followed his usual innovative path here in London with poker table-inspired furniture and an area called the 'Canopy Break', for guests to engage in relaxed, informal conversations between meetings.
