Cabinetry – Bespoke Modern Living Room Cabinetry, Staffordshire. Internals finished in dark walnut, with wide planked oak floating shelving, bay window seat and bespoke TV surround.
The project – To modernise the front living room of this 1930’s property, maximising the storage and seating potential of what was a small room..
“Cedar and Rose exceeded our expectations on what could be achieved with this room and brief. We are delighted and spend lots of time in there now with the fire on”.
What was the inspiration for the design?
The brief was to ensure that all available space was utilised as the room isn’t overly large. The aesthetic was to be modern traditional with a slight Scandinavian element.
How did you put a modern twist on the project?
Handleless cabinetry either side of the chimney breast sits seemingly in its place and is unobtrusive on the eye. Thick 40mm solid plank oak shelving with the live edge left on softens the look whilst adding texture. The playful fabrics also tie into the colour scheme.
Why the bay window seat?
Part of the brief was to allow as many people as possible to be able to sit in the front room comfortably. A window seat was a no brainier there just wasn’t enough room to get a sofa in. Now it comfortably sits three adults or four children. So now 8 people can sit in this room which is pretty impressive.
How was the colour decided?
The client had already decided on colour at the first meeting so that was one less thing to talk about.
Tell us about the fabrics?
The client sat down with both our upholsterer and curtain maker and decided upon what you see.Both items were also handmade and heavily influenced by the drawing room blue colour of the room.
