Benchmark Furniture's Toolbox Talks for Interior Designers

Benchmark Furniture’s Toolbox Talks for Interior Designers

I visited Benchmark Furniture this week for the latest instalment of their ‘Toolbox Talks’.  A wonderful series of lectures for interior designers, where visiting makers and designers talk through their design and production processes. This time Edward Bulmer demonstrated historical pigments in paints, and the production of environmentally friendly, but high-performing paints.  The ingredients within […]

Interior shots coming soon from our Knightsbridge / South Kensington project in London

Interior shots coming soon from our Knightsbridge / South Kensington project in London

One of the most satisfying parts of an interior design project is the photography at the end.  Seeing all of the design work come together and the finished result of all the planning, sourcing and agonising over details distilled into a beautiful shot of a room is wonderful. There’s a lot of work that goes […]

Making pots in West Sussex

Making pots in West Sussex

I spend a lot of time searching, sourcing and specifying products and finishes for our interior design projects.  Basically I spend a lot of time buying stuff for my interior design clients! It’s very satisfying when I get the chance to actually see those things in production too.  That could be a factory making products […]

Lego (again) and reflecting on the design of Le Corbusier

Lego (again) and reflecting on the design of Le Corbusier

  To get me in the mood for returning to the studio today, the final day of the holidays was spent with Lego’s model of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, from their Architecture range.  Another wonderful gift from an inspired wife! At the risk of turning this into a Lego blog (see also the Architecture Studio), […]

Small can be beautiful

Small can be beautiful

  Small is often beautiful too, as shown in this lovely video of an apartment refurbishment in Paris. Well, apartment could be an overstatement.  I’m sure many of us could downsize, but eight square metres might be pushing it! But this interior design project by Kitoko Studio in Paris shows that it’s at least theoretically possible. […]

London's New Designer Mondrian Hotel

London’s New Designer Mondrian Hotel

  I visited the new London hotel from the Mondrian group last week, on the Southbank between the OXO Tower and Blackfriars Bridge. As it’s located in the existing Sea Containers House building, the work of designer Tom Dixon is focused mainly on the interior design, but even from the outside his renovation of the […]
