February: Brands we love

Working on projects in London and Internationally, we do not only design and project full scale projects, we also source furniture for clients.  We have large and varied library of designers we know and trust, which grows each month. These here are a few we have recently come to know and love – and specify for projects.

 

Swedese are a brand we came across at 100% Design and stood out to us as the most original and fresh of the furniture brands on offer there. Mixing elegant materials with Swedish design, their products are funky, yet refined and would suit a grown-up modern space. Not new to the scene, Swedese have been manufacturing since 1945, “sharing timeless details of architecture”.

Their current collection is soft, yet structured with umber hues and a cool sophistication.

Another brand we have very recently discovered are Henge. From Italy, Henge offer something completely unique. Instead of buying an item that feels part of a collection, you feel as though you have come across a one-off piece, a relic. They describe it themselves: “They (products) depart from the need for a matching style, a voluntary step away from constraints on manner and form, intentionally breaking away: they are all diversified pieces”

 

With real warmth, focus on high quality materials and craftsmanship, we have specified individual Henge pieces for clients looking for pieces that intrigue and stand out. Their beautiful leather sofas are hard to match, and their consideration for tones is impressive.

One other brand we have become very familiar with, have specified and had the pleasure of meeting, are Gallotti and Radice. They are the original company in Italy experimenting with the material crystal. Crystal and glass used in considered contrast with woods and metals are what makes Gallotti and Radice unique. Focusing on elegant use of shape and form, their collection comprises of office systems, home office desks, tables, mirrors and beautiful trolleys. Some are reminiscent of a different era in design – the 1940’s and 1960’s, which shows their commitment to the same quality and classic design they set up long ago.

We continue to be introduced to and come across refined and individual brands for our clients, and to further fuel or passion for Interior Design.
