INTERIOR DESIGN DETAILS: CLAPHAM BEDROOM
The brief for this space was to create a boutique-style bedroom scheme, while problem-solving the 'skeleton' of the room, which had a few irregularities in the way of two separate chimney stacks at the area where the bed would ideally be located.
At the other end of the room, the architect had created a long, galley en suite (which you can see here), with two inset dressing/wardrobe areas on the third wall of the room.
After playing around with layouts and concepts to try and embrace the unusual shape, it was soon clear the best way was to smooth out the back wall with a complete stud wall - however, the client was keen for this space not to go to waste.
The way that the fabric panelled wall was created meant that certain individual panels are removable, meaning that storage could remain behind for items that didn't require constant access.
With the headboard doing the hard work in this scheme, a simple Loaf bed was the order of the day, as well as some Tom Dixon Beat pendants, which cut a nice silhouette cast against the intense blue.
For the built in wardrobes, floating bedside tables and other freestanding furniture, we opted for a composite material called Valchromat, which has this interesting flecked quality and comes in a range of colours.
The bedside floating shelves and freestanding cabinet were both my own designs, which we had made up, with the former incorporating an extended drawer front to mask the visuals of plug sockets on the headboard, which were a necessary evil for phone charging. They also were designed with a groove cut through the back through which a charger cable can be threaded.
