C + S were commissioned to develop several bespoke furniture solutions and interior finishes for this lovingly restored C17 former vicarage. The brief was to provide electric curtain tracks and blinds compatible with the properties existing technology along with an upgrade to the interior design and lighting.
Silent gliding opulent curtains with sheer roller blinds were installed for a discrete solution to the south facing rooms. Additional creative storage solutions were developed to combine with the existing smart home technology, including housing a record collection, creating a multipurpose coffee table and a TV console unit with sound bar. The clients 1950s occasional chairs were skilfully restored and incorporated into the new design scheme.
The Family Room colour palette was created by selecting colours from the client’s fabulous art collection and a rug was designed to embody the main colour scheme. The lighting was chosen to compliment the Asian objet d’art, with shades made from silks which combine beautifully with the overall scheme.
A glass coffee table allows the room user to appreciate the wonderful rug design, whilst occasional seating in the form of handy stools can be transformed into tray tables.The TV cabinet was designed to reflect an antique chest, with geometric patterning and the sound bar was incorporated behind acoustically transparent fabric for a neat yet functional solution. Antique occasional chairs were restored carefully and revamped with a quirky fabric from Nina Campbell.
The Media Room required a cabinet to house the clients record collection and TV. The cabinet was designed to include liquid metal panels and finished to match the other furniture in the room. The upholstery in inky blue, draws on colours featuring in an existing antique rug and opulent curtaining with a gold damask leaf design fabric is carried through to the dining room where the window treatments are controlled alongside the rooms lighting design via Silent Gliss electronic tracks.
The bay windows required a bespoke design solution to ensure the track was recessed neatly into the ceiling of the bay window, allowing an uninterrupted view of the ornate leaded glass windows and the fabulous garden beyond.
