Hong Kong dim sum canteen John Anthony brings together east and west

Floral fabrics and reclaimed terracotta tiles sit side-by-side in this Hong Kong restaurant, which takes cues from colonial-era architecture.

Shanghai studio Linehouse designed the interiors for John Anthony, which is named after an East India Company employee who is said to be the first Chinese man to become a British citizen.

The restaurant’s design reflects the mix of cultural influences he would have experienced, with wicker furniture, hand-dyed fabrics, and hand-painted illustrations of tigers.

Pale pink walls contrast with vaulted ceilings covered in glazed green tiles, and diners sit in dark blue booths screened by linen curtains. A separate private dining room, decked out in huge botanical illustrations, has space for larger gatherings.
