At Wills Furniture we get to create some visually stunning pieces of furniture. This week we feature two such items, each from a different designer.
The first is an absolutely beautiful antique chair. The Wills team have recovered and reupholstered this chair in its original style with traditional diamond buttoning and hand carved cabriole legs. The Fabric as depicted is from Seneca Fabrics, Osborne and Little ‘Curio’ – coded F7017-01. A wonderful and comfortable chair that will again provide a lifetime of further enjoyment. – The fabric selection and brief were provided by Newham Interiors of 132 Cotham Rd, Kew.
Our second piece is exquisite. Prepared for a client in Toorak by Moni Kutt Interior Design, this sofa – a Stratford from the Wills Collection – has been upholstered in a Warwick Classic Jacquards Collection fabric Vibe col. Porcelain.
The Stratford sofa pictured here is 2300mm long and features a hand tied coil spring seat, walnut polished Victorian Ash floating plynth and Luxura memory foam seat cushion with feather back cushions. Quite seriously, this verges on the ultimate in comfort.
It’s vitally important that clients choose a designer or decorator who can interpret your vision and your designer for comfort and style in a simple, understated manner – or if you choose brash and exciting – it’s your choice.
What an interior designer does: A designer envisions, plans and outfits spaces in a way that makes them both beautiful and functional. He or she balances aesthetic considerations with structural planning to reflect the clients’ lifestyle, set the desired mood, complement the home’s architectural features, and ensure that less glamorous details (like electrical outlets and air vents) fit into the scheme. An interior designer also cultivates relationships with trusted artisans, vendors and others who execute the design.
When to hire one: You may have a clear vision for your home, but an interior designer can help you bring it to life while making sure it satisfies nitty-gritty considerations such as space planning. A trained eye and a creative mind-set allow for devising solutions that you might never have imagined, and attention to the tiniest details will transform your space into a haven that looks polished and complete.
What it will cost: Interior designers have various fee structures. They might charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of total project costs. You may also be asked to pay a retainer before work begins.
If you’re on a set budget, don’t assume that hiring a designer is beyond reach. Many will be happy to arrange a few hours of consulting or will help you source furnishings and decorative accents.
