My clients wanted a space which would double as a family lounge in the winter and an elegant evening entertaining space year round. Firstly we divided the room into two. The main portion is a dedicated seating and media viewing area where the contemporary sofas and chairs were located around a striking cream leather X frame ottoman from Ashley Hicks in front of the open fire. By bringing this furniture closer to the fire we created a cosy more intimate and social space, key for entertaining and family time.
The second part of the room occupied a smaller area but proved the perfect place to create a corner for reading. We installed a fabulous more traditional brown leather buttoned chaise from George Smith, which is now a focal point from the entrance hall. The colour scheme chosen is one of layered neutrals, with plenty of textures, bespoke custom made cushions, darker walls and pale carpet.
