Stephen Clasper Interiors have had further shortlist success with their Sunningdale project, that has been shortlisted for the Living Space – U.K. award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014.
The project is an exciting one, as Stephen Clasper Interiors were charged with turning a prestigious, contemporary Berkshire home into a glamorous, open-plan space for entertaining.
The client wanted to personalise her new home and create a sumptuous living space where she could entertain her friends in style. She wanted the home to be striking and unique. It had to complement her collection of contemporary art. Above all, it needed to radiate glamour.
“We presented sketches and mood boards to illustrate our concept of a luxurious, free-flowing space. As well as being able to relax informally in the kitchen with her family, we wanted her to be able to entertain at a Champagne bar, before moving guests to the dining area and then the living room, which opens out to the garden.” explains Stephen Clasper, Creative Director at Stephen Clasper Interiors.
The designers hand-crafted an extensive range of bespoke furniture including wall panelling and free-standing items which would be unique to this project and they introduced sumptuous fabrics in carefully-matched tones to provide a sense of the ultimate in comfort and opulence.
In the living room’s fitted cabinetry, the designer incorporated a remote-controlled secret panel to conceal the TV, an integrated fireplace and hand-carved detailing which they reflected in the bespoke console tables and also created a study where our client could work in comfort and style.
Throughout the property, Stephen Clasper Interiors used clever lighting to show off the client’s collection of art, while chrome, mirror and gloss lacquer touches added a high-glamour feel and they also hand-crafted a curved Champagne bar incorporating chrome and mirror finishes and leather upholstery in the client’s favourite shade of purple. It stands as a striking, luxurious focal point for the entire living space. The design works so well because of the extensive time spent with the client to develop the ‘flow’ and style of the space. This was crucial to the success of the end result.
