British Furniture and Interiors company Timothy Oulton, together with luxury launches site VeryFirstTo.com, are seeking an extremely discerning individual to fill the exceptional role of a ‘Global Dinner Party Critic’.
In its quest to revive the lost art of hosting, Timothy Oulton will appoint the Critic to review dinner parties around the globe – both corporate and private. The global dinner party odyssey commences with four vastly different dinner party experiences on three continents.
Not just a food critic
The critic will not solely be a food critic, but will instead review a diverse array of hosted dining experiences, from menu and interiors to music, welcome, atmosphere, guests and conversation.
Travelling to all four destinations, the critic will join a top notch guest list for a delectable menu and interiors setting, with each one built around a different selection from the Timothy Oulton collection, exploring different expressions of modern hosted dining.
All travel and accommodation expenses will be paid for, and there will be a budget for expenses. The appointed candidate will also receive USD 25,000 to spend on a dining room interior from Timothy Oulton.
From small to show-stopper
Each of the four dinner parties will be themed differently, from small and intimate to a show-stopping dinner for 100 hosted by the brand’s Founder and Creative Director, Tim Oulton, with the chance to meet the Design team at Timothy Oulton’s creative hub and showroom in China. Other venues include a trendy urban hideaway in the heart of Manhattan in New York, the iconic Los Angeles Athletic Club in L.A. and the Timothy Oulton gallery in Amsterdam, housed in a former 19th century church.
The lost art of hosting
The idea of hosting lies at the very heart of Timothy Oulton’s ethos, to create inspiring spaces where people can relax together and connect. The brand believes this is a lost art that deserves continual revival. Tim Oulton explains: “Having everyone over to your place and sitting round a great dining table – eating, drinking, laughing, arguing, sharing – that’s what brings people together and makes life that much richer.”
Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, adds: “Having previously launched the legendary hunt for a researcher for the ‘$1m 1 Year Luxury Vacation’, VeryFirstTo is privileged to be hosting the search for the ultimate dream appointment for anyone who loves interiors, travel, fine dining and appreciates a magnificent atmosphere. The individual must be an elegant wordsmith, an interiors aficionado, a cuisine connoisseur, a social media socialite, and an experienced dinner party guest.”
Timothy Oulton has over 30 furniture galleries worldwide from New York to Hong Kong to the grandeur of Harrods in London. Find out more about Timothy Oulton’s captivating dining interiors here
