About The Client
The client, GP Bullhound, is an investment bank and advisory consultancy, founded in 1999 with offices all over the world. They have been in their Jermyn Street offices for some years, but had never “settled in” properly, instead working with standard office furniture, without any elements beyond the purely functional.
This investment firm in London had a rather soulless, generic office building. Although they could not do anything with the structure of the space, or the standard decorative elements of the building, they wanted to add a modern, luxurious touch to their public areas, commensurate with the type of work they do, to present the best possible impression to clients and visitors.
In order to reinforce the idea of modernity, stability and longevity, they wanted to blend the modern with the iconic and recognisable.
Knoll furniture was natural place to start, with designs that we think of as being definitively modern, but which come largely from the first half of the twentieth century.
The stark lines of the surprisingly comfortable Platner chairs created the right impression in reception, and the bold clean lines of Knoll marble-topped meeting tables and chairs brought comfort and style to meeting rooms.
We were able to cover some of the internal walls in grey silk wallcoverings, giving a subtly luxurious feel and bringing unexpected texture to the rooms.
Oversized artificial orchids brought bold, low-maintenance, botanical touches to each area, and silk shades on occasional lights throughout softened the lighting in these otherwise stark spaces, creating a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
Review by the client
Their philosophy is simplicity coupled with an ability to find opportunities within the given space and existing designs. They were able to provide great advice on both retail and bespoke furniture, and a deft blend of old and new.
Carly’s interior design aesthetic portrays transatlantic and European styles, tastes and lifestyles. Her work is current, on trend and international however she is able to remain subjective and recreate to your needs.
I highly recommend their services.
