Futurehome have been shortlisted for the Home Cinema award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014
Luxury, glamour and a high technical specification were the design brief for this project. This was achieved by close collaboration between both the technical and interior design teams. The glamour is achieved by using plush fabrics and finishes in black and aubergine, and installing a bespoke bar, luxury furniture and evocative mood lighting.
The walls are decorated in black crocodile effect wallpaper, with aubergine velvet padded panels. Each panel has an inset crystal wall light and is surrounded by blue LED lighting. There are sumptuous powered reclining leather seats and purple tub chairs in the bar area. The well stocked bar was designed and installed by Lida Cucina in dark burnt wood effect finish, with integrated wine chiller, and backlit mirrored wall with glass shelves. Black silk carpet completes the look.
The fully controllable lighting system has a number of pre-set moods, from a mellow and sophisticated nightclub to a glow suitable for screening a movie. The overall impression on entering the room is Hollywood glamour with the cool blue LEDs highlighting the ceiling, bar and walls. The dimmable crystal wall lights give out the only white light in the room.
