Two Rooms in Devon

DRAWING ROOM The big drawing room of the same house already had the surprising décor of scumbled yellow lacquer walls, black woodwork and a dark green ceiling, with wall-to-wall leopardskin carpeting. Rather than expensively changing all this, I made furniture that would work with it, making the finished room appear entirely harmonious and intentional.

The big drawing room of the same house already had the surprising décor of scumbled yellow lacquer walls, black woodwork and a dark green ceiling, with wall-to-wall leopardskin carpeting. Rather than expensively changing all this, I made furniture that would work with it, making the finished room appear entirely harmonious and intentional.

FAMILY ROOM

The fireplace is flanked by Alan Davie paintings whose brushstrokes make an interesting contrast with the gothic tracery ceiling, and the straight lines of the patinated steel base of my Ribbon ottoman.

DRAWING ROOM

A detail of the chenille-covered sofa, with moss fringe, cushions of my own Knossos embroidery, and a couple of peonies on an off-white lacquered, triangular table: a shape I often use by a sofa, since it both looks great and works well with people walking past.

DRAWING ROOM

My Walpole sofa in a taupe weave, with a bronze smoked Perspex table, and one of off-white lacquer. A big Christopher Le Brun landscape hangs by the tall, black bookcase.

FAMILY ROOM

A detail of one sofa, red Perspex cube tables and my Ribbon ottoman, upholstered in a rough chenille weave reminiscent of a Chanel suit tweed.

FAMILY ROOM

The entirely upholstered sofas are my own design, inspired by ones my father made in the mid-60’s. They are covered in his Daisy Daisy print in a custom colourway on rough twill cotton, with cushions in various textured weaves and two of my David Hicks by Ashley Hicks fabrics.

DRAWING ROOM

The other sofa, my King Vidor design, is covered in my David Hicks by Ashley Hicks Riviera cut velvet. In front of it, my cubist-style Raft low table in sycamore, designed to fit the space, contrasts nicely with the rather elaborate gothic chimneypiece.

FAMILY ROOM

The old ballroom of this large, Gothic country house, a huge, empty white space, needed to double as a big party room and a comfortable, family-friendly playroom for children. I devised a single, hexagonal sitting area with two huge sofas centred on a big, elliptical ottoman, with Perspex cube tables to add a pop note to the very classical architecture of the room.

FAMILY ROOM

Each big seating unit can be pulled apart to form two sofas and placed in the corners of the room when the floorspace is needed for dancing or seated dinners. Their giant hexagon shape works well with the gothic arches of fireplace and windows.

DRAWING ROOM

In front of the fire, a bench I designed in dark-stained oak, covered in black horsehair woven by John Boyd in Somerset, not so far away, and a table of bronze smoked Perspex, both sitting happily with the Regency sofa-table against the wall, and the leopardskin carpet.
