In our NW3 blog this week, we are happy to highlight our longstanding relationship with Knoll, and touch on our status as being the only independent authorised Knoll Dealer in the UK. Pretty cool, right?

Starting at the beginning, Carly identifies Knoll as responsible for starting her passion for iconic, quality design. Knoll, known for quality, luxurious feel, high standards of production and a variety of ranges, are closely aligned in their ethos to that of which NW3 Interiors have now built their reputation. This relationship isn’t in its honeymoon phase either – it’s been 20 years in the making! So, when Carly discusses and advises on Knoll collections and design, potential suitors can be sure that Carly knows what she is talking about.

 

Through Carly’s existing relationship with the global powerhouse, NW3 Interiors can provide a host of benefits for those looking to access Knoll collections. As an independent, Carly will visit your home to ensure that colours work with your existing furniture and home set up and can also visit the Knoll showroom with potential clients to see the KnollStudio Collection, or can demonstrate the furniture in the NW3 interiors showroom if more convenient. Not only can NW3 provide understanding on how to specify design classics from Knoll, Carly can also provide competitive pricing on Knoll furnitu
re. If you are looking to Knoll furniture, NW3 can support through your whole journey.

There are a range of Knoll stockists, from The Conran Shop to Skandium, Heal’s to Haus, who can all provide excellent support when choosing Knoll furniture. But NW3’s independent touch can provide a unique experience. When referencing Carly, Alioscia Re, Knoll Showroom Manager, said “you are so enthusiastic about Knoll, really love and appreciate the products. You are the best ambassador.” That endorsement speaks for itself

 

The Knoll showroom is based in Old Street where Knoll showcases most of their ranges
including sofas, dining tables, outdoor furniture, coffee tables, chaise, lounge chairs, footstools, desks, office chairs and office desks. It is by appointment only so if you would like to arrange a visit or if you’d like to come and visit the NW3 Interiors showroom where we also showcase Knoll furniture, please get in touch.

Exclusive NW3 Insights into the Clerkenwell Design Week 2017!

Exclusive NW3 Insights into the Clerkenwell Design Week 2017!

Our NW3 blog this week comes from Clerkenwell Design Week, which has run from Wednesday 23rd to Friday 25th of May. Taking place at a variety of show rooms, exhibition centres and other gorgeous destinations around Clerkenwell Road, #CDW2017 has featured a spectacular array of installations and product launches across the three days.

Clerkenwell itself is home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet. Clerkenwell Design Week, now in its 8th year, celebrates the rich and diverse Clerkenwell community by creating a showcase of leading UK and international brands and companies presenting across 3 days in the area. Attracting over 30,000 people in 2016 and with 300 brands exhibiting, NW3 Interiors headed down to be a part of the amazing week and share some of our favourite exhibitors.

From Design Through the Ages to Kitchens of the Future, Ergonomics at Work to Future Washroom Trends, Clerkenwell had it all. Excellent speakers discussed important industry issues across the 3 days, whilst Icon Magazine took over Fabric night to present Icon House of Culture. Basked in glorious sunshine for most of the 3 days, #CDW2017 was awash with vibrant, open discussions and excellent exhibitions.

 

Carly- “My favourite lights were the iconic lights from Bert Frank which I have recently included in my project in Camden and Primrose Hill. The range and development of the designs always surprise me and their constant ability to produce new and interesting pieces means that they are not only one of my favourite lighting designers but are an established and trusted brand partner of Nw3 Interiors.

 

Across the 3 days, Clerkenwell Design Week played host to some of the very best the Design world has to offer!

Bathroom Design and Renovation in Primrose Hill

Bathroom Design and Renovation in Primrose Hill

Following our recent sharing of our very own showroom transformation and our detailing of our Century Court project, we have decided to create another piece in our transformation series. Aware that spring has broken into its stride, we promise not to use too many Easter/blossoming metaphors!

The Primrose Hill bathroom project was an incredible experience for NW3 Interiors. Our client had decided they wanted to revolutionise their bathroom. But this project wasn’t a new coat of paint – the bathroom was designed to be reminiscent of their favourite hotel, Café Royal, a 6 star Piccadilly paradise.

The challenge for NW3 was to create a true, immersive, luxurious experience in a small space. To do this, we needed trusted help. As an authorised deal of Neutra, NW3 had the perfect resources available to create just the feel. Neutra specialise in washbasins, bathtubs, shower trays and shelves with a contemporary design, with coatings from refined textures and furnishings, the result of an inspired dialogue between natural materials and advanced technologies. The marble veining was meticulously planned and installed to create a perfect movement of natural stone. The builders were amazing, installing the heavy marble with great care to ensure everything went without hitch.

This project certainly tailored to some of the finer tastes; the bathroom includes heated wall panels to dry towels and keep robes warm. We’re proud of the transformation, and hope you enjoy some before and after shots.

Before & After – Century Court

Before & After – Century Court

Having shared our showroom transformation a few weeks ago, we’ve been looking forward to creating a similar piece around our work with Whitehall Park – a group of developers with properties in North London. Century Court has been one of our favourite projects to date, and we’re very proud of the transformation that the property underwent. Our challenge: transforming a dated, top floor apartment with spectacular views of Lords Cricket Ground, into a modern turn-key masterpiece ready to be sold to private residents.

Century Court is a residential building based in St John’s Wood, London. For those non-cricket fans amongst our readers, this is the view that we were trying to maximise…

With such an excellent view, we needed to create a high-end experience using quality furniture and lovely fabrics. I have used lots of teal/blue throughout the apartment, which looks great with dark woods like walnut. An Alexander sofa from the Sofa and Chair Company, wallpaper from Arte and rugs from Rugs by Ana were crucial furnishings, and were supported by large structural changes including knocking through the wall dividing the kitchen and the main living space. This project was full on – I decided how to spend the budget, chose all colours, materials, decorations and negotiated terms with the suppliers. I worked alongside the builders and collaborated with architects to ensure this property got the makeover it deserved.

Taking the best part of 9 months, the renovations to the 113sq. Century Court have transformed the project, shifting the property from “offering unparalleled views” to “boasting considerable charms for the anti-cricket too”. Below, we have a collection of before and after photos to show how we rejuvenated the apartment.

We love these quotes on interior design!

We love these quotes on interior design!

This quote, speaks to us of the importance of not playing it safe. Current fashion trends in interior design are there to draw inspiration from, and to explore what creative ideas the artists of the world are coming up with. But ultimately, your home is your own. That’s why we love interior design ­– nothing is more pleasing to us than looking at someone’s home and seeing their soul reflected there.

Charles EamesOften so much time is spent fervently seeking the right sofa, the perfect curtains, the ideal coffee table, only for the delicate touch of a well-placed vase to tie the room together and make it feel complete. Charles Eames understood the importance of this attention to detail.

 

Saladino perfectly captures why we believe good interior design is such an important part of a person’s life. Your home should fit you like a glove, and make you feel like the best version of yourself.

This beautiful quote from Lella Vignelli truly resonates with us. Interior design is an art, and as such, it doesn’t need to follow rules or logic. When you truly get a feel for a room and start the process… it can be an almost spiritual experience.

 

The sophisticated Pompeiians always had their dining rooms specifically arranged so that all diners had a gorgeous view to enjoy as they ate. We, like Dorothy Draper, believe this to be so important today still.

In the past couple of weeks you may have seen images of my beautiful showroom posted on our social media sites, which is part of my home based in Hampstead. However gorgeous it appears now I can assure you that it took a lot of love, dedication, interior design and decoration. It takes a perfect balance of colours and textures, adding specifications to the design tailored to my lifestyle requirements and adding finishing touches to make it a home.

After many years of experience as an authorised Knoll dealer my home reflects my personal style and includes a range of iconic pieces from; B&B Italia, The Rug Company, Luke Irwin, Vitra, Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen, Arte and Fromental wallpaper, local craftsman and artists – all of whom I proudly represent.  I have become an expert at combining these collections and creating uniquely interesting and luxurious spaces that combine tastes as a designer and the practicalities of family life.

You will never know the full potential of a space until you pour your heart and soul into it. That is what we strive for when designing projects at NW3 Interiors.

This is clearly exhibited in the work I did on my own home, see the before and after images below.

If you would like a tour of my home or you are welcome to a cup of coffee to discuss how I can help you transform and maximise your space then please contact us directly.
