Sustainable Interior Design, London
As one of the leading luxury interior design firms in the UK, and operating globally, we feel a responsibility towards sustainability in our interior design projects. Many of our clients specifically request ethical materials which cause low environmental impact, consideration towards recycling, sensible use of space and accessibility features - but if you're not completely clued up on eco-friendly interior design we're happy to guide you towards your perfect sustainable home. When you check out our projects section, you'll see roof lights to bring the sunshine inside, energy-efficient bookcase lighting, upcycled vintage furniture, natural quarried stone flooring and jute rugs. Our team works with selected architects to ensure that any building work we specify meets and often exceeds current environmental regulations. From double-glazed timber windows to walls insulated with natural fibres, solar panels to sustainable wooden wall panelling, we've done it all. When you work with Designed by Woulfe, you can be sure you're reducing your carbon footprint, doing your bit for the planet and protecting your family's future.
The owners of this Notting Hill family home are avid travellers, so we combined aspects of a boutique hotel with home comforts for a look and feel that is familiar yet luxurious. Tactile furnishings, a chic and muted colour scheme and soft, fluid shapes give a sense of understated decadence.
We are committed to integrating sustainability into our business at every level - from client projects to our own operations and using our influence in the wider community. Informed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we have implemented a clear strategy for reaching our targets and measuring our efforts along the way. We’re pleased to share our progress in the Designed by Woulfe Sustainability Report for 2019-2020.
From flying across the world to view a painting for thirty minutes to bespoke crates for artworks that are often only used once, the art world has a notoriously terrible carbon footprint. Finally, in October 2020, the Gallery Climate Coalition was formed by a group of gallerists, journalists, fair organisers and others. With a mission to educate this sector and move towards a reduction of carbon emissions by 50% (in line with the Paris accords), the GCC is helpfully providing the tools and the expertise to the art world – and other industries - to achieve this goal.
Seeing one of Modernity’s stands at an art fair gives the perfect sense of the furniture gallery’s philosophy. Take, for example, the 2015 London edition of the Pavilion of Art and Design where they had a large stand with two separate seating areas divided by a beautiful dining table. Two of the three walls had small wooden slats placed close together in what looked like a striped effect. It was something completely out of the ordinary and actually made the furniture interact with the walls as opposed to merely existing within them. To Modernity, furniture pieces aren’t merely being treated as everyday objects, but as unique pieces of art.
For Charles Byron and Maria Gomez of bespoke furniture brand Byron & Gomez, every handcrafted piece they make begins with a story to tell. The Somerset-based duo creates unique designs for private clients, interior designers and architects, and recently completed a piece commissioned by Designed by Woulfe for a private residential client. In this conversation, we discuss the importance of storytelling through design and why sustainability matters.
