Residential family home, Richmond Park, London
Interior Decorator Samantha Kennell of SLK Interior Decoration designed and styled the interiors of this light and contemporary family home next to Richmond Park, London.
A repeat client for Origins Design, we created the upholstered furniture, metalwork and joinery that Samantha required for her customer’s family home. With a brief to create a cosy, warm and welcoming home with a soft colour palette, we worked with Samantha to ensure the result was a home that maximised the light in every room.
One challenge we faced with this large family home situated adjacent to Richmond Park, was the restricted access to the basement kitchen and dining space.
Samantha had specified a large L-shaped banquette for the dining area with matching benches and oak table. The limited access meant the banquette had to be taken down in sections by our installation team and fitted on-site by our joinery and upholstery team members.
One great benefit to doing the installation this way was we were then able to fit the seating and button the whole piece without any seams or joins in the fabric.
Our matching benches and stunning grey oak pedestal base dining table were then installed to create the complete dining area. The modular nature of the large U-shaped sofa designed for the kitchen, was also brought down to the basement in sections and installed.
In the main living room, we brought to life Samantha’s designs for two curved armchairs and two sofas upholstering them with white and neutral linen fabric.
We also made a contrasting bespoke stained black oak sideboard with a brass plinth and bespoke circular brass handles. We gave the black lacquer particular attention and chose a 10% stain and 10% gloss mix which would allow the natural grain of the wood to show through.
We designed and manufactured a beautifully curved boudoir sofa upholstered in a neutral velvet fabric for the master bedroom of this London home. An off white double height quilted and padded headboard by Origins Design with integrated reading lights in brushed steel finish makes a feature of the bed. Our bespoke off white high gloss and stained oak bedside tables are matched with a stained oak chest of drawers and a useful upholstered blanket box sits along the base of the bed.
“The team at Origins Design are truly helpful – they have a great eye for design and detail, and I know the furniture will always delight and be of the highest quality. Their follow up service is also excellent and invaluable for any design professional.”
