ANNOUNCEMENT: House & Garden Feature Southbank Apartment
BEFORE & AFTER: HOW TO ADD CHARACTER TO A MODERN CITY FLAT
The living room area features a curved sofa designed by Studio Ashby, the shape of which was inspired by the River Thames
The Joinery piece maintains the open layout of the apartment, keeping the overall scheme light while using strong angles and varied materials to add interest. Its design reflects the strong lines of the modern architecture along the Southbank. Calacatta marble, unlacquered brass ( forming a characterful patina over time) and birds eye maple were used to create the facets.
Bespoke furniture is a highlight in the open plan living area. The coffee table, which was made by a skilled UK-based woodworker from a rare single piece of burr elm, almost mirrors the shape of the sofa. Its design, consistent with the theme of nature, complements the flat’s earthy palette.
The use of natural palette full of texture and earthy tones continues in this bedroom, creating a calm and peaceful space. Naomi Paul was commissioned by Studio Ashby to make the beautiful hand-woven, offset wall and table lights.
