Attic 8 International Art Consultancy was started in the attic of No 8 Lord St.
We like to think the Attic is a special place where you might find anything - treasure, a world forgotten, memorabilia, decorations, old tins of paint, discarded 'objets', unused bits and bobs.....
Atelier is the French word for "workshop”, and in English is used principally for the workshop of an artist in the fine or decorative arts.
Let us inspire you!
Attic 8 International Art Consultants provide both off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions to your hospitality projects. Our gallery gives you a taste of artwork that we offer, taken from our vast library. Most of these artworks and mirrors are available in various sizes, designs and colours - if you would like to discuss your project please contact us.

Let us inspire you...
Our combined art consultancy experience has been gained through an involvement with various clients. We participated either individually or collectively on these hospitality projects.
The requirement for art consultants to source bespoke art is essential in the colossal variety of interior design projects from hotels and care homes to residential design. As well as boasting our own in-house artists with experience in the design industry, Attic 8 holds an eclectic database of painters, illustrators, sculptors, photographers and craftspeople from the UK and around the world.
When putting your art collection together, we guarantee to have something that will work for your aesthetic and budgetary needs.
We have suppliers who specialise in various mediums and production techniques. This gives us the ability to transpose imagery to a large number of products including canvas, wallcovering, perspex and vinyl.
We use materials such as aluminium,
paper & wallcoverings, canvas, mirror, wood, 3D, plaster, porcelain and acrylic, offering our clients the opportunity to produce artwork, which has a high impact and is visually inspiring.
Most of the images shown on our Gallery page feature a concept. These concepts or ‘ideas’ can be developed to suit the client’s taste depending on the project specifications. Other images may show existing art pieces from our database.
We are happy to work remotely with digital imagery and presentation software as well as face-to-face!

CLIENT-FOCUSED, we are like a dog with a bone and are RELENTLESS in finding solutions.
FRANK, FLEXIBLE and looking to the FUTURE of hotel and interior design.
I've had the pleasure of working with Amy and Lynne on the Le Meridien in Piccadilly. I found Lynne's creative spirit and accommodating nature refreshing to ensure that the final product was to our exact requirements. A personalised service that like anything else, had its share of issues along the way, they were resolved quickly with flair, ease and utmost professionalism.
- Felicia NG, EPR Architects
As if our new rooms weren't stylish enough already, we have commissioned Scottish artist Lynne Macpherson to create a striking series of black and white illustrations of Edinburgh. By way of a complement to the contemporary Scottish materials, each room features a suite of four of Lynne's works, imaginatively displayed in custom-designed acrylic frames, giving a unique perspective on life in the Capital.

The service provided has been first class and the artwork better, it really fits the aspirations of the project. It's been a pleasure to work with Amy and a process I hope to repeat in the very near future.
- Rory Foster, Rory Foster Development Management.
We approached Attic 8 for a small hotel project in London, under a tight budget and deadline. Amy was able to give us a vast number of suitable options, with plenty of advice and help for colour alterations and framing choices. An easy and stress free process allowed us to specify some great pieces that complimented our schemes very well, meeting our budget and deadline.
