South Kensington Family Home
Main Contractor: Greater London Construction
Design: Louise Jones Interiors
For this home in South Kensington Kaizen was appointed to build furniture for a unified family home. Besides the dressing room for both her and him, they produced her vanity unit, a ‘showcase’ wine store and a home cinema.
His dressing room was made in dark stained and oiled European oak, with infill panels wrapped in Robert J.Scott leather and bronzed detailing, and doors on concealed Soss hinges. The carcass interiors are finished in cedar and include solid timber drawer boxes. The room included polished plastered walls and ‘saloon’ type bathroom doors.
Her dressing room was crafted in a light grey oiled maple with polished nickel trims and paper inset doors. The walls were lined with fabric and mirrors. A vanity for her was also requested, so kaizen made a unit in a unique ribbed laminated antique glass, with nickel trims, custom made handles and maple interiors, complete with a bespoke laundry bin.
The Wine store was crafted in American black walnut, with joinery to three walls. Bill Amberg made the bottle holders for us in chocolate brown hide leather.
For the home cinema we created stepped plattforms, lined the walls in fabrics and produced the comfortable coil sprung steating in Donghia linen fabric.
