High-end residence

Henfield

Discerning clients with impeccable taste

We’ve been working on this high-end home since 2014, and it’s become one of our most cherished projects. Our clients are a young family with a real love and knowledge of design, and we’ve helped them create an amazing home for comfortable living and stylish entertaining.

Our favourite area is the extension, where our cabinetmakers have built and installed a bespoke bar, and a custom-made table that seats 14. The clients love purple, and we finished the dining chairs in a fabulous berry velvet detailed with studs.

Although very large, the living room still feels comfortable, welcoming and relaxed whether it’s being used by 20 people or just one. The design includes an upholstered wall, in which a secret concealed doorway leads to a study. Continuing the purple motif, designed and we manufactured a gigantic U-shaped sofa; probably the largest piece of bespoke furniture we’ve ever produced.

The glazed screens between the hall, living room and new day room needed careful consideration, as they’re visible from most areas of the ground floor. We wanted them to be elegant, and provide balance and continuity of design between the existing house and the new extension. We chose Crittal glazing, but to come in on budget, we had the frames manufactured in timber rather than the usual steel.

Lighting was a key element in the design, and we specified and procured fittings from the Elan system. In the living room, we used LED strip lighting hidden in the coffered ceiling to create subtle lighting zones in this large space.
