Organic & Natural Materials

Using organic materials in interior design helps to bring us back to nature; a tranquil home equals a peaceful mind. From the luxury of cashmere wool throws to the elegance of fine bookmatched marble, the opulence of silk wallpapers to the warmth of teak slatted room dividers, we often introduce natural elements to bring balance, texture and grandeur to a room scheme. For our overseas clients and owners of luxury holiday villas, the beautiful stone floors we have fitted assist with optimum temperature control and provide the perfect transition between indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.

Headshot Nick Hornby by Nick Ballon, 2015

It is very difficult to engage in a conversation about contemporary British sculpture without examining Nick Hornby. With commissions all over the world and pieces that stand beside Barbara Hepworth and Auguste Rodin, it would be easy to understand if Nick were engrossed in the pretentious world that can capture a talented young artist.  Instead, he is calm and speaks in a rhythm that is pensive and precise; because the truth is that he is interested in the experience of reflection and learning from his audience.
