I am often asked what are my favourite aspects of being an interior designer and I always reply that I cherish the ability and opportunity to create unique bespoke interiors and furniture. In this insight I will take the opporuntity to share with you my inspiration behind two of my favourite pieces which I have designed for my Bespoke furniture collection.
The inspiration for Gregory dining table flowed from the Colorado mountain setting in which this stunning table was designed to be placed. The Gregory dining table is a bespoke piece which is handcrafted in England and I sourced exquisite timber for the table top and added an organic twist to the base to bring flow and sculpture to the piece.
This handsome round top table for eight which is featured above is finished in veneer palm wood in high gloss with a chamfered edge. The Base is made of curved wood with bronze liquid metal finish. This table can be used in a number of ways from an occasional table, display stand and dining table. The shape and form is perfect for conversation to enable friends or family to comfortably contribute over formal dinners or informal dining occasions.
My most creative piece to date which embodies the very spirit of April Russell is the Bunny Bar pictured above. The inspiration for the Bunny Bar stems from my childhood in New York and experiencing first hand the fun, laughter and glamour of Cocktail Hour. Crafted by hand in England, the Bunny Bar is a chic statement piece crafted internally in oak and the exterior frame is made up of reeded mouldings and finished in a specialist painted technique to resemble vintage rattan. Dressed or undressed, doors closed or open, this stunning cocktail cabinet will bring glamour to every occasion from a relaxed evening tipple to a full cocktail soiree.
